Awesome Payasams in Onam Sadhya

Had Onam Sadhya at this place. Spread was neat and tasty. Taste and ambience was good. Avial, buttermilk and Inji Puli were the best. Meals were filling. Payasams were the highlight - 4 Payasams were given - Paruppu, Wheat, Pal & Adapradhaman. All Payasams were awesome and a fitting finale to the... read more

I had made a reservation on the phone a day before Onam on Aug 27th. The person on the other end of the line did make note of the reservation and confirm. When I turned up the next day in anticipation of a good meal after starving myself in the morning and driving 15km from home, I was told at... More

This is the second time I had dinner here (with friends) and I should say the quality has come down drastically. Karim meen is well made but tasted so bland. Sweet (jack fruit payasam) is so watery and not good. For the price they charge, the quality should definitely be better. Service is good.

The food here was excellent - really first rate. I enjoyed every bit. Many vegetarian options make it easy to eat clean. The service was very good. They took great care of a party of 10 late in the evening.

The restaurant continues to be a favourite choice of people who look for authentic Kerala vegetarian food.The dishes are well prepared and served in decent quantities.The ambience is functionally good though not flashy.I recommend this to people who crave for Kerala food at least once in a couple of months or quarter.Well done, Ente Keralam.Keep up the standards.

This is a great restaurant. Overwhelming choices so I settled for the non-veg thali. Mutton curry, fried chicken and prawn, prawn curry, a boiled egg masala and some beans. Malabar parotha, apam, idiyappam and biryani. Each and every serving was bliss, different from each other, delicately spiced, not overpowering. Great service and reasonable pricing make this a hard act to... More
