I used to love the Chicken Biriyani at Sagar and fish biriyani at Paragon. I used to go to Sagar at least once whenever I was in town, just to taste the Kozhikkodan biriyani I'm used to after being subjected to the Hyderabadi biriyani regularly.

I've heard good reviews about Zains near St.Joseph's school though I've not been there in the last decade or so. They were famous for pathiri and similar items- it was probably as authentic as it gets. Is Zains still up in its full glory?

Calicut Towers and Asma Tower were other places we used to go out during my school days, though we've not been there recently.

BTW, anyone from Calicut remembers the 'Tom and Jerry' ice-cream parlour at Malabar palace? Sadly, they were way ahead of their times!

How can you miss Sagar when you are in Calicut.?

The other must visit eateries in calicut Apart from Paragon and Rahmat are

1, Al Baik for Arabian Cuisine
2, Zain for Malabar Cuisine.
3, Mezban @ Asma towers for some awesome Fish Thali.
4, Elanchi and Chicken Biryani @ Bombay Restaurant

Waseem.

A place I'd recommend if you're on the Thrissur-Kozhikode is Rice and Fish near Valayamkulam. The place serves seafood unlike any other in Central Kerala.
You can choose your fish from the catch displayed and have it cooked in several ways.
We especially enjoy the grilled fish and tikkas. Also the breads and biriyanis are really good. We make regular evening drives from Thrissur to dine at this place some 35 kms away.
"Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey", if it were to be given the Michelin rating.

There is Elegance in Kanjirappally - Ponkunnam route, just 2 kms off Kanjirappally.

I am NOT sure Hilltop is still that great in terms of reputation / food - I never had it there.

Queens restaurant on NH road side diagonal to Kanjirappally Private Bus stand.

At Ponkunnam, you have Indian Coffee House (KVMS Junction), Hilda (Opp Ponkunnam Private Bus stand) etc.

Valayamkulam - Is this place a few kms before Changaramkulam?

Yep. It's a lone building on an empty stretch of road. To one's left when driving towards Kozhikode. Hard to miss.

Personally, I prefer Paragon over Sagar, Not that Sagar is bad, but to me it has at best been an alternative to Paragon.

I'll be sure to try out Al Baik (where is it?), Mezban the next time. I have been to Bombay Restaurant (I loved their Puttu and Mutton Kurma) & Zains.

I also loved the Shrimp Pirate soup at Kingsbay.

Thanks swiftnfurious the trip to Kanjirapally was cancelled; however we did try out the continental restaurant at Lulu mall. Don't remember the name but its pretty close to Pvr cinemas. The food was pretty good and the service also was very good, the bill for 4 people and 2 kids came to Rs.2800 this included 4 starters 5 main courses and 4 desserts.

If you are traveling to Angamaly/Ernakulam from Thrissur direction just after the divine fly over(Chalakkudy) you will find a big hotel called clay house on the left hand side of the road, with lots of parking. I have been there a couple of time. Good service,cleanliness and awesome toilets too. Give it a try !

The rates are affordable too.
