We took our friends from overseas to Ente Keralam for their first Indian meal, and it was a good choice. They thoroughly enjoyed the Malabar parottas, the curries and the drinks. Service too was prompt and friendly. Only negative point----- the mosquitoes, which were extremely bothersome and exacted a heavy toll. The management needs to do more on this front.... More

We had been to this restaurant for Onam with 3 friends & their families and the sadhya served was terrible and the service was pathetic with filthy attitude of the service guys. The Sadhya is't worth the moneyand propbably the old Udupi or any of the Bhavan's should have been better. Never ever venture to this ENTE KERALAM.

I wait for this every year and have always enjoyed the experience. The food is perfect and truly traditional and authentic. Four different types of Payasams at the end of the meal are the Grand Finale. The restaurant gets extremely busy and one should book well in advance during this period. This leads to a rushed service where all the... More

Do not go to the Anna Nagar branch, this one is abysmal, you will be disappointed badly at the Anna Nagar branch, it is totally 180 apart from this one. Pricing is reasonable... More

There are a few things I would have loved - (a) with spicy kerala food, you need to wash it down wiht some beer... should be some way of includig this in the menu (b) I... More

Even though we taste the same food on daily basis, till we intend to go out and explore style and hospitality. Which is worth for money at Ente keralam. Nice ambience and tasty food above all wonderful valet service, so no tension about parking. All this at a premium pricing.

I have been to the one in Chennai several times now. This review relates to my experience on Mothers Day. I have been to its Bengaluru counterpart, which is more spacious. However, I give the edge to this Chennai location in terms of food quality. I have traveled extensively in Kerala. I know enough to know that this food is... More

Excellent appam and mutton stew. There were 2 vegetarians in our group who found the food to be very good too. Strongly recommend this place. Service was good and we did not have to wait for long.
