The lunch which they serve is called King's meal in Malayalam and I think they do full justice to the description. Amazing food. We had vegetarian food and we could taste most of the Kerala specialities and the appams/parotta/biryani were excellent. Very good service also. A rich experience fit enough for a king.

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 either the... 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.

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
