if you ever come to Cochin, Dal Roti is a place you shouldn't miss.
The owner, Ramesh is a very nice and lovely person.
Full of Energy and happynes he welcomes new guests with a big smile and a friendly "Hi, come in".
The menue is full of typical north indian dishes. Snacks or full meals are available.
You definetly have to try Dal Rotis chai, it is the best chai I ever had in India.

I suggest a tasty dinner or lunch at Dal Roti at least once if you are in Cochin and finish it with a very awsome desert, called quirbani.

I hope Ramesh and Dal Roti will be there at Cochin if I come next time to India.

Great going Ramesh. the comment posted says it all. how about adding a few tidbits of info on Cochin too, could be tourist info, pics, a little history - at least the interesting parts - and an odd anecdote.

Hi Ramesh,
I live in Paris and came a few days ago to India for a wedding, and to Kochi for only 24h.
I just wanted to say I loved your restaurant. Food was really very high quality and your enthusiasm is extremely communicative.
I also appreciate very much that you give some of your recipes online, especially that of Firni which is real nectar.
Several of my friends came to Kochi a few days after me during the same trip around the wedding: you were highly recommended !!!
Your restaurant is one of the main reasons i'd like to come back to India.
