Best Kochi restaurants in 2019 as per The Week


THE WEEK correspondents held panel discussions with food experts to rate the best restaurants in seven cities—Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kochi.

The best restaurants for several categories, such as fine dining, north Indian, south Indian, global and regional food, were selected and ranked by the experts comprising chefs, restaurateurs, food critics, food entrepreneurs, food writers and bloggers, and food enthusiasts.

Back to the land

Street food is not ranked because the cuisine is vastly different, even within a city. THE WEEK's Culine Scale was applied to all other categories—five stars for the top 30 per cent, four stars for the next 30 per cent and three stars for the last 40 per cent.

For Kochi, the panel comprised Karthik Murali, Salman Faris, Rahul N Kutty, Oneal Sabu, Jay Menon, and Justin Pappalil.
