Kadalundi Balakrishnan Hotel or Balettante Meen Kada which is located close to the spectacular Kadalundi Kadavu Bridge is famous for fish fries and Kerala meals. People search this place on google maps and reach here just to enjoy their fish delicacies. In Kozhikode, while there are many other fish fry and meals centers like Amma Hotel, Balettante Meen Kada stood out from the crowd.

Price: Above Average
Specialty: Fish Fry
The restaurant is registered as Hotel Kailasam but famous as Kadalundi meenkada.The restaurant earned its name meenkada due to the popularity of their fish varieties. Fish fries of different kinds are available here. Irrespective of the size and kind of fishes used for frying, the restaurant uses the vary same spice mixture.
Kerala’s special Karimeen and Chemmeen (pearlspot and prawns) are also available here as deep fried seafood varieties. When fish fries are special here, the banana leaf lunch is also good for lunch.
If given a chance…
I would like to improve the ambiance. The restaurant is too mediocre in its seating arrangements. I would also give enough attention to the cleanliness of the restaurant. If taken a bit more care, the restaurant that is also famous as Kozhikode meen kada could attract crowd from all around India.
Please do give your opinion about this restaurant.
