“Health standards are very LOW”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

A friend took me to this restaurant and I fell in love with the cuisine.

When I took my better half, she unfortunately found a a cut finger nail in her lassi. An apology given and not much else.

Ok, so food was exceptional,so I went back with better half, her 2 sisters and 2 friends. Seated upstairs. During the meal, a RAT the size of a cat was crawling around the pipe work and then crawled into an air conditioning unit. Absolutely disgusting! So downstairs I go, and complain, no apology no nothing. The health authority should be called in but I don't even know if there is one in Dubai!

So gave the place 2 chances and failed miserably, which is a shame because the food is tasty.

Enter at your own risk is all I'm going to say......

“absolutely delicious and awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

got an opportunity to lunch at this restaurant on the second day of my visit in Dubai. I must say the food was really delicious and absolutely fresh and tasty. We had ordered fish thali and i must say it was really good,even the vegetarian stuff was fresh and delicious including the payasam. The best thing about the food here was,didn't leave a bloated feeling which normally one encounters after eating food outside which is generally with lot of cooking salt/fruit salt. we enjoyed the meal.

“One of the best Indian outlet in Dubai !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

If you need to have an Authentic Taste of Indian Delicacies, this is a place you must visit. We had been given treats here by our friends on both of our visits to UAE. On one occasion, it was an weekend and the queue to enter here was huge. It somehow depicted the line similar to Apple Fans queued up in front of the Apple Store on the launch of any of thier products !!

The interiors are done good. The price is also apt with a good varirties to choose from. The typical Kerala Lunch, popularly known in many names like "Meals", "Ooon'e" etc are a definite choice if you happen to drop in during lunch. The tandoori dishes for dinner is also recommended. Vegetarians also have a good choice of appetite here.

Bon Appetite

“Its good but ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Its a good place where you get tasty food but its not as good as the hype.. i always see my friends and family go ga ga about it but i dont find it as good as the ones in Kerala. The meals and the fish is really yummy and a must have. I liked the butter milk as well.
