I have enjoyed curries for 50 years, I dined at Kerala with a friend on a Tuesday night, four other tables occupied, so not busy. The table service was excellent and the food imaginative, well prepared and very tasty. I will certainly dine here again.

A second Sunday lunch absolutely delicious. Started with Sand island non-alcoholic cocktail. Special dosa, lamb biryani, prawn curry, vegetarian beet side, a lot to eat. Warm Keralan dessert and frozen mango icecream. £49 for two.

Pleasantly priced & tasty South Indian style food, I’m no expert (not been to that part of India) but seemed pretty authentic, especially in relation to what usually passes for Curry House in this part of the London Suburbs. Service cheerful and quick, even with...More
