The food they serve is very tasty and would like to go again and again . You get the real taste of Kerala food . Try tender coconut drink and meen pollichathu .The ambiance is very good and it is a very quiet place with a decent crowd .

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.

The food taste was just not up to our expectations. It taste like a fusion cusine, even the common dishes were blank. The service provided was good. Please don't expect the real taste of God’s own country! ! !

We were in a large group and they had to open a room for us on the 1st floor which did not smell or feel fresh. This was a bit putting off. The service was good and the non vegetarian dishes very tasty. Was disappointed by the appams since they are normally excellent here.

Very good authentic Kerala food. However the price seems to be too high!! They offer a wide variety of dishes both Vegetarian and non=/-vegetarian and the malabar parottas and Prawn curry is great. Service is prompt and friendly

Well ente keralam is not for those who are budget weary. The ambiance is good, the location is good, the food is good, the only spoiler is the price. All the dishes we tired were tasty and had the kerala taste to it. The reason for the 3 stars is the price & VFM. There are similar joints like coconut... More
