Looking for some authentic North Indian, especially Punjabi delicacies? Sethi Da Dhaba is all set for you. This is also one of the most rated dhabas in Kochi located at Jawahar Nagar in Kadavanthra. I visited this restaurant with my family. We wanted to try some real Punjabi flavours and our selection was perfect.
Chicken Tandoori, Chikken Tikka, and Chicken Biriyani are some of their best from the menu (I visited the restaurant for a second time to try their Chicken Biriyani – it is different from the Malabar Biriyani, but yum). What so ever your order is, a good way to conclude your course in Sethi Da Dhaba is by sipping the sour-sweet Patiala lassi from a large tumbler of Patiala style.

More about Sethi Da Dhaba
Kochi, the little Hong Kong of Kerala has no scarcity for restaurants that serve North Indian savours. Dhaba, as the name says, is obviously a specific niche that serves fare from the northern half of India, Punjab in particular. However, when it comes to a North Indian restaurant in South India, we must always think a chance of blend (a fusion). Sethi Da Dhaba is an exception. Here you will find pukka Punjabi tastes.
From our experience and from our friends’, Tandoori Chicken, Paneer Tikka, Butter Chicken, Malai Chicken Tikka (less spicy) and Kadai Veg are best from their menu to try with Butter Nan, Tandoori Roti, or Lacha Paratha. If you love trying something different from the Kerala’s Biriyani, then you must also go for Chicken Biriyani here. Lassi or Jal jeera, pick between the drinks and Matka Kulfi to dessert your course.
Sethi Da Dhaba have a vast and simple courtyard decorated with some of the antic pieces from Punjab and rest of India. This place is good when you plan a meetup or so. They also have a more sophisticated dining space which is elegantly furnished. Whatsoever, the restaurant do not brings a real Dhaba feel by its look (yet the flavours are authentic).
The restaurant is open in the evening from 6:00 pm to 11:30 pm.
