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.

We are regulars to Ente Keralam Bangalore and used excellent hospitality & ambiance and cordial captains and waiters, how this hotel in Chennai lacks ambiance, quality of food is also not very and staff knows no head and tell about service and courtesy that should be extended to guests. Very disappointed

Bring some money along, because this place is worth the splurge. Even after a week in Kerala, I could not get enough of Malayalee cuisine. This place topped all the meals I had in India the whole two weeks. The service was excellent as well! By far the best meal I've ever had in my life.
