Cochin is a city in the South of India, and in the North of London, you can taste the city’s food. The restaurant is filled with the specialities of the state of Kerala, which are known for being among the spiciest in India, for the use of coconut milk, and for being predominantly vegetarian. Head down to Cochin Finchley on Ballards Lane for an authentic taste of this uniquely regional Indian cuisine in North London – just remember to book a table first.
Food was excellent but the service was slow to non existent. We were given our cocktail on the house due to the slowness of the service
One of the best Indian Restaurants I have been to................great food and service and immaculately clean. I will certainly be going back here. Also very very reasonably priced.
Food was good and service was good too we were pleased and will visit again. Lots of choice for vegetarians which was good for our friend.
Cochin Finchley is a temple to the cuisine of Cochin, a southern Indian city in the state of Kerala. Kerala is on the coast, so fish and seafood dishes abound, and was one of the main ports of the spice trade, so expect an element of fire to the food at this Finchley curry house. Keralans are also traditionally vegetarian, so any non-meat eaters in your party will be well catered for. The menu on Ballards Road in North London – close to Finchley Central tube station – represents the best in South Indian cuisine, so let us talk you through a few favourites.
