Hotel Yuvarani: Best buffet lunch at Ernakulam/Kochi

Are you looking for the best buffet restaurants in Ernakulam, Kerala? Kerala is not just the best tourist places in India, but it offers great food as well. Find the address and details of Yuvarani Hotel in Ernakulam/Kochi.

Good food has always been a weakness for us! We don't mind driving 50km just to visit our favorite restaurant. And if find good food somewhere, we will keep visiting the same place instead of trying new places.

It is true with our favorite restaurants in Ernakulam as well. 10 years back (yes, exactly 10 years back! This is our 10th wedding anniversary year!), we visited Yuvarani restaurant at Ernakulam Jose Junction for lunch after our "wedding shopping". The wedding shopping is a big event where both parties (boys family and girls family) will go together for shopping including wedding dress and gold. During shopping, the boy will take everyone for lunch. So, according to that custom, I took everyone for lunch. One of my cousins suggested Yuvarani restaurant, Ernakulam. The buffet at the restaurant was awesome with over 40 items.
