    The service here is very good.. but the food is not so good.. because I ordered an alpham, tandoori roti. But the alpham was horribly spicy.. similarly the mayonnise was pretty sour.. finally ordered a lime juice. I got the lime juice that I had made earlier.. I could not drink it full, because of the bitterness.. I need to pay more attention to the food. They charge a terrible price.

    To be honest, tried their Chicken tikka biriyani yesterday. Seriously, it's just a random normal biriyani. Not the best but yeah you can try if you want to. Not recommending. doesn't live up to my expectations. And also I think it is over priced.

  • 4Jithu V. 3 months ago
    Good place for Biriyani. Especially for Chicken Biriyani. It's really nostalgic and good food served. Service is just OK only. They expanded in very good areas and floors in these 3-4 decades of business. Service remains the same or less. They feel like monopoly or they will get a client mind set. Service can be careful and let clients have a memorable time with your restaurant.

    Chicken Biryani was good. Fish curry rice used to be their highlight..but very poor now. 😔 Naan and paneer chilly was good. 👍 Cleanliness has to be improved. Management please look into it.

  • 2Nidheesh P S. 3 months ago
    Simply overrated, the biryani was just ok, no flavour and bloody they charged 180 for that mix of boiled rice and chicken roast(I mean their biryani). They dont even provide tissues, if u ask for it they will give it as per the demand and the size of the bill..haha.

  • 2Athul S. 3 months ago
    Not worth the amount, quantity is not justifying nor the taste. Just an avg biriyani after all... Parking is also an yeah if u are a person like me who wants to try and find out the best biriyanis u can have a visit.

  • 5Antony D. 4 months ago
    Dear. Sapphire people your restaurant is great make it very great..I have a humble suggestion.. Maybe it is not need for the quantity of business you have..Early morning breakfast time if supplier can give a little smile to customers it would be great experience for the people who are coming to start a day with good food and good people with positive energy... Please consider this request..if can do it.. That will a great service to humanity 🙏🏼💐😊 Thankyou...

  • 3Nidhal Ali B. 7 months ago
    Great place if you want to have a good quality biryani, but... Most of the other food on the menu is overpriced. The quality of food, hygiene standards and the whole ambience is nice. Service is also not bad. Overall opinion, would recommend the place but depends on how much you're willing to spend and eat.

  • 4Mithun T. 9 months ago
    It is a renowned hotel in the town.There is a pretty large space available both AC and Non AC. There is a place to park cars. The dining room is kept immaculately. We consumed the biryani. It had a great flavour. The railway station and bus stop are both close to this location. It is a place where you can feel free to eat, while traveling in public transport.

  • 3Amal A. 9 months ago
    Large hotel, neat and clean, crowded. Tried Biriyani, not bad, but the quantity is low as compared to other hotels. But the bill is very good, of course. Since a lot of waiters are there, you don't have to wait for long. Two-wheelers can park in front of the hotel, but the car parking is kind of far, considering the traffic.

  • 4Hrishy V. 9 months ago
    Old is gold. Still they maintain the same quality as the old days. All the dishes are delicious. But the taste of biryani is not always consistent. Everything else seems fine.

  • 3Paul P. 9 months ago
    This was once very famous for serving biriyani. The food now is average. There was no waiting to get a seat. The fresh juice quantity may be 8 ounce which I personally think not enough.

  • 4Akshay A. 9 months ago
    I really enjoyed their chicken biryani. Wow what a great experience. Super tasty and enough quantity. Price is not much. They are only charged reasonable price. Their service staffs are good and their service is nice. Parking facility is good only. Highly recommended. Best hotel for friends and family.

  • 1sumith r. 10 months ago
    They were serving one of the best biriyani in town. But we had bad experience for the lunch. Chicken chilly we ordered was not even close to the chicken chilly. They charged 360₹ for the chilly which was a disaster. It was so sweet and oily. They doesn't have the courtesy to admit it was bad. Real bad attitude from the management and staffs. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  • 4ASHA N. 10 months ago
    Fried rice was delicious but the biriyani didn't match the expectations.. The neat washrooms are something that deserves special mention. I never expected a restaurant toilet to be this clean...

  • 4Angel Jissy J. 10 months ago
    Hotel sapphire is renowned for its biriyani. I tried it by hearing others review. The atmosphere is good and though there are so many customers, the food is served fast. liked the service but the price is very high. didn't find anything special about the food

  • 4Rahul R. 11 months ago
    Biriyani was okay, Al Faham chicken tasted nice, Fried rice was not so great! Fast service. Need better cleaning in hand wash area, especially when it's busy.

  • 4Alan M. 11 months ago
    One of the best non-veg restaurants in Trissur. This place delivers really good Biriyani. And thus it's really crowded. During peak time (12-2 pm) you would be compelled to stand in line in order to get a seat. But the food is worth the rush. Last time i went at almost 2.30pm and it was packed. Had to share a table. But would absolutely go there again.

  • 1Dr.jithin m. 1 year ago
    Posting this review after 6..7 visits. Biriyani, porotta, beef roast...felt average taste and quality. Not worth the hype though. Last time we had biriyani rice and chicken fry...rice had no flavor at all and chicken fry served was pathetic. When we told suggestions regarding the quality of food, staff were not even welcoming to accept those. I don't know how this place was before, but now for such a price; food they serve and attitude of staff makes this place highly not recommendable.

  • 1prejith k. 1 year ago
    The nostalgic saphire biriyani flavor is not anymore there. We had a pathetic experience today. The order was even wrongly served and such big chunks of chicken in chilly chicken and hardly have no flavour and burned. Much disappointed.

  • 4A. 1 year ago
    They kept the place clean and well maintained. Enough seating is available. There are lots of people to serve us. When we visited, there was not that much crowd. Seats were available. They also have rooms to stay other than the restaurant. Food is good. They provide dine in as well as take out. Didn't delay to serve food. The cost for food is not expensive.

  • 5S. 1 year ago
    The old taste is a dream now. Yet they serve the best Thalassery Biryani in town. Recently renovated. The vintage structure is gone. Porotta and Chicken fry is a must try. Good noon vegetarian breakfast options are available.

  • 3Sreekumar P. 1 year ago
    Decent restaurant. Spacious and crowded too. There’s big hype of their biriyani but the one I got today ( first time here) was just average. The piece of fish inside was unbelievably small too. Most importantly please invest in a decent wash room and toilet space.

  • 3Jijoraj A. 1 year ago
    Service is okay. The parking is very limited especially for two wheelers. The interior is renovated with ample lighting and decent furnitures. Coming to the main part- Food, it is just okay. They lost their legacy in food taste if I comment it truthfully.

  • 3Akhil Menon P. 1 year ago
    Very famous for Biriyani. But this this it wasn't that tasty, might be due to crowd as it was Sunday and cooked many times to fulfill requirements. Most disappointed part was still no Printed bill. Not mentioned GST no . Above all NO DOGITAL PAYMENTS. PLEASE MOVE ALONG WITH THE TECHNOLOGY.

  • 2Krishna A. 1 year ago
    Food here is top class and i don't have to review that but, I'm rating it down because in this Digital world where every bills are computerised, these guys still in the ear of "കുത്തി കൊറിച്ച് ഡോക്ടർമാർ എഴുതുംപോലെ ഒരു ബില്ല്" (gives bill like how doctors write and give it to you where you need to guess your items ordered and thereby makes the customers to think suspicious over your waiters who delivers it) is given to the customers. This is really absurd!! Upgrade yourself this is 2022.

  • 5Anas R. 1 year ago
    It has a pleasant ambiance in which to sit and eat. They are retaining their goodwill and quality by having well-behaved employees and a pleasant atmosphere. It is a well-known restaurant in the town. Biriyani is fantastic; it's the finest spot to bring family and friends to eat. I'm extremely at ease sitting here; it's a conventional, wonderful restaurant. Chicken AlFam was a complete waste of money, but the biriyani was delicious and filling. They are charging a hefty price for the food. Everything else is wonderful and good.

  • 2Ssaajje 3. 1 year ago
    Chicken biriyani I ate had small pieces, and not worthy for the price rs185,is high.once upon a time, it was a good hotel, now spoiled. There are so many good hotels now in Thrissur city have biriyani's,food priced low and taste good, not this hotel......

  • 1NINAN W. 1 year ago
    How sad it is when you hear the hype for a restaurant and decide to give a try and find it totally disappointing.... Ordered a chicken biriyani after struggling to find a table to sit while being amazed of the crowd buzzing in the restaurant... Expectation was high and growing coz of the vibe there... But... The moment the taste of the biriyani filled my mouth all the buildup turned out to be a disaster. Feeling sorry for my friend whom I urged to join me to taste the best biriyani at Thrissur.

  • 4Sujith S. 1 year ago
    Had fish Biriyani today. It used to be better in my college days. Fish was dry fried and even the dum could not make it soft. All ingredients seems very good , hats off to the purchasers. Those who want to park can avoid the parking space Opposite to railway station and advised to use the parking near the north entrance of KSRTC Station- there is a right road after the hotel and you can see the parking after 30 meters approximately.

  • 5JJ B. 1 year ago
    Tried chicken biriyani mutton and fish biriyani. Tasted nice. Fish is bit spicy. Just yummy. It's really crowded. Back side of the hotel there is parking. Hotel should maintain the washroom better since the hotel is having a big crowd.

  • 2Liya M. 1 year ago
    I ordered in from this restaurant in memory of the good food I had from here during my college days. However, I was disappointed as none of the curries( I ordered chilli chicken, chicken roast and chicken fry) can even be rated as fine. The biriyani tasted fine but not as good as old times.

  • 3Arjun T. 1 year ago
    Tried Chicken Biriyani. It was just okay. I didn’t like the flavor of masala. But the rice was good. Service was also good. They have separate parking area on the opposite side of the road.

  • 2Sona M. 1 year ago
    Thrissur Sapphire Hotel is famous for their biriyani. I tried it before as well. This time I tried the chicken biriyani and am totally disappointed with it. The rice was cooked properly and chicken was okay okay but the masala was a disaster. The taste of the nutmeg spice was over in it and which ruined the complete taste of my biriyani. The taste of biriyani was heaven in earlier days and these days its just their fame which is attracting the business. Not a recommendation from my side. If you are trying for the first time you may like but those who had before please dont go with your expectations Rate - Chicken Biriyani - 190₹

  • 2VishNu C. 1 year ago
    This place used to be one of my favourite food joints in TCR. Not anymore... Now they charge a bomb for the dishes and the quality is way more inferior than before. Avoid this place if you don't want an expensive option.

  • 3Arvind S. 1 year ago
    Having parking in the crowded streets of Thrissur is the only good thing about this place. Their lime juice is better than their biriyani, biriyani was very bland and J found it tough to finish eating. Fish and beef fry were decent.

  • 2Subin S. 1 year ago
    My native is Thrissur, but I tasted biriyanis from Calicut , Kannur and Malappuram...Thrissur people tell that the biriyani from sapphire is nice...but the fact that others like from Kannur , Calicut won't ...because it's just rice and chicken that too not Lagon chicken.

  • 2George J. 1 year ago
    We ordered mutton biriyani, the taste is not but bad but the mutton pieces were not cooked, had a worst experience with biriyani. The mint lime ordered was good and tasty. Hope Sapphire will uphold its foods quality in future.

  • 4Vishnu A S. 1 year ago
    Nicely cooked fried chicken, chicken biryani and fish curry will impress you at the first bite. This place is known for great juice or good tea. The well-trained staff welcomes guests all year round. Service at this restaurant is something one can name terrific. We orded mutton biriyani and chicken biriyani

  • 1Sethumadhavan Taliyil p. 1 year ago
    Yesterday when I purchased porotta and chicken curry for dinner, it was found to be of very poor quality. Poorly cooked porotta, Peasmasala and rotten chicken! I have never expected this type of food from a three decade old hotel where I used to visit. Is it due to Covid disruptions?

  • 3Binu V. 1 year ago
    This used to be a great place to have biriyani. But unfortunately the standard of food has come down quite a bit. Still the dishes are tasty but there is definitely scope for improvement. The place is always over crowded and there are no proper mechanism to manage the din and bustle. If proper steps are not taken to improve the quality of food and service, we might have to see this one going down the drain.

  • 4Tibin A. 1 year ago
    One of my favourite place to have Malabar Chicken biryani. Located very close to Railway and Transport station. Ideal place to grab your quick food before travel.

  • 1Sureshkumar B. 1 year ago
    We were ordering food from sapphire since long. Nowadays the quality of the food was going down and down and yesterday it was it's peak. I have ordered a sapphire special chicken item for 365 rupees but it was very bad. You cannot chew because the chichen was so hard. I could not eat anything as dinner yesterday so that I was so sad not only regarding money but a restaurant in city is so degraded with respect to food.

  • 5Ashwin M. 1 year ago
    I have been going to this restaurant from my childhood, I have few of my best memories here. The nostalgia kicks in each time I visit or go near it. The taste of food is really good and the quality of service is awesome, even when they have to manage the million people who are coming in!! :) Must try!!

    Chicken biriyani was a average one. Rice quality was good and chicken was also well cooked. Problem was on masala. Masala was a little over spicy and burnt. Usually sapphire's chicken biriyani used to the best in Thrissur, but now it's not the case. It's just a regular biriyani we can easily available in any hotels. Had porotta and egg curry from here. Porotta was good but egg curry wasn't upto the mark. it didn't have any kerala style taste.

    (Translated by Google) Went to sapphire hotel today (9-1-2021) at 2:30 pm. After sitting for ten minutes, someone came and cleaned the table. I waited for about 10 minutes but when no one came to serve or take the order I had to leave due to hunger. The behavior was very bad. It is better that they do not do this work as they do not know that the hotel is run to feed the hungry.

    Located at the heart of the city...near ksrtc bus stand..must try chicken biriyani from here..lot of seating space is available here

  • 1RAHUL P. 2 years ago
    Mutton biriyani: mutton peices were hard and flavourless. The quantity of rice was pathetic. I am pretty sure my 7 year old nephew would ask for another plate after he is done with one. The quantity and quality is poor. Chicken biriyani: the chicken pieces were good. The quality of the biriyani lives up to its name. However, like the mutton biryani, the quantity of rice was pathetic. Verdict: sapphire is an established restaurant; it is also well placed, being only 200 metres from the railway station. These factors has made the administration complacent. The food quantity and quality therefore suffers. Therefore, if you are in a hurry and have to catch a train fast or is tired from a train journey, sure, eat from here. But if you want something better for the 170rs you give for the chicken biriyani, do try out other options like Akshaya, Alankar et cetera.

    Not sure wat went wrong, today couldn't feel their speciality on Chicken Biriyani...ts just normal one..charging 170 per biriyani..chicken fry 160 per plate and it contains two peice, fry onion masala still same taste but chicken peice is too hard..

  • 4Gopikrishnan C. 3 years ago
    No concerns over the hygiene, as even the plates that is being provided to the customers is warm and clean. Regarding the food, this restaurant is one of the best in the district especially for the biryani that is being served. The only concern is the crowded environment that we cannot say anything against the restaurant , it is because of the exclusivity of dishes.

  • 5Daryl P. 3 years ago
    The biriyani from Sapphire hotel is a must have. Perfectly spiced and fragrant rice, meat that melts in your mouth and the right amount of masala. The porottas are flaky outside and soft inside always served hot. Small cubicles, meant for families for 4-5, just lets you munch on without have to bother about table etiquettes.
