Went here for the first time, 4 adults ate had plenty of food and drink and came in reasonably cheap. Food tasted great, service was good. Its a small restaurant so I would recommend you book to avoid disappointment. Will definitely be going back :-)

Have been to the Keralam quite a few times over the years, have always found it hit-and-miss but last visit was truly awful. Four of us were there, two of us really enjoyed our meals - the two vegetarians - and the other two found it bland and average at best. By the morning, three of us were reporting bodily... More

Put simply, no other Indian restaurant I’ve ever been to comes anywhere close to the Keralam in Southend, it’s just heaven. The food is not your bland generic Anglo-Indian fare, but authentic freshly cooked South Indian Cuisine. Only a philistine would take a disliking to the delicious dishes this restaurant serves. In 10 years of regular patronage I have always... More

Tried this restaurant as it got fairly good reviews and we were looking for somewhere for a quick meal after a show at The Cliffs but it was awful. Staff were friendly and really helpful but the food was absolutely dreadful.

I have been coming to the Keralam for years. It is a quiet restaurant tucked onto the street just up from Southend Central station. I love South Indian food which is quite different to a 'standard curry house'. Right from the beginning the owner has always tried to help people to choose if they are not familiar with the food....

I'd passed the Keralam many times even though I love Indian food. I'd checked the menu outside but didn't recognise much of anything and was put off by the menu being heavy on fish and vegetarian stuff. Big, big mistake. When I finally gave it a go, I found it a fantastic place. The waiter/owner(?) was more than happy to... More

After a trip to India, myself and my boyfriend were eager to find somewhere to eat some South Indian food at home as Kerala was the best place we went and the food was unbelievable. The staff were so friendly and recommended some great dishes for us. The food really was amazing and fresh as well. I recommend this place... More
