Great Kerala food

If you enjoy Kerala food as much as I do and dont get the opportunity to visit Kerala often this is a great alternative. I have been to this restaurant multiple times and I come out having eaten more than my usual quantity. I typically stick to the appams and wheat parathas and I mix and match with... read more

The ambience is very good and a nice place for lunch. Centrally located and food is very tasty and fresh. If you love Kerala food then you should try this place. However i suggest the ala carte than the set menu. The food is served hot and tasty and filling.

i have been to this place only once with my family. being from delhi, we absolutely relished the dishes from kerela. the seafood was fresh and well cooked. it is reasonably priced and garners good attention from travelers to chennai to try out a different cuisine.

On our first night in Chennai we walked over to Ente Keralam and ordered the Rajakeeyam meal, veg for me and non-veg for the hubby. It was indeed a treat. The meal started with keraleeyam, which is coconut water with mint leaves and coconut pulp. So refreshing and got your appetite and taste buds ready for what was coming next.... More

After getting mesmerized with the rating that this restaurant had received in various sites, my friend was always pushing me to try out at this restaurant for months together. Finally, we got a chance to taste at the most over rated Kerala Restaurant for a late lunch last Saturday. Restaurant is located at a very prime and quite calm area(This... More

I've been to the Ente Keralam in Bangalore but never in Madras. So when I did have the chance, I jumped at it. I tend to like places that don't go for overkill and try to pack in too many things and not go a good job of any of them. Italian/ continental restaurants don't try and serve south Indian.... More

Being a Malayalee and from Goa, I was missing my fish curry. I was advised to try Ente Keralam. I was lucky as there was a Festival of Fish going on and all sorts of fish – red snapper, karimeen, crabs, pomfret were on display.. and placed adjacent was a large display with rates of fish dishes. The ambiance was... More

one of the best kerala style restaurant in chennai. If you are out of town for a long time and you really need to feed your tummy, you wouldn't really care about money. Taste is fantastic, service is good. lots of varieties, and all served in authentic kerala style.
