Don't hesitate on this one, tried for the first time and the collective household review was wow. Great to have dishes that don't align to the norm on the curry front. Only option was takeaway, but lovely welcome from the staff. Definitely recommend, go off...piste with your selection you won't be disappointed.More

During lockdown, we've been tying to support our local restaurants and takeaways by having a takeaway once a week. We ordered from the Kerala yesterday evening and were very impressed by the range of dishes available and the quality and tastiness of all the dishes....We had Kerala Lamb, Chana Masala, Chicken Calicut, and a number of side dishes - all absolutely delicious. It was easy to order and pay over the phone, the delivery came on time - left at the door by someone wearing gloves and a mask. We will definitely be ordering from The Kerala again, and look forward to when the restaurant opens again. Thoroughly recommended!More

Me and the other half wanted something nice for lunch during the corona virus outbreak, what a fantastic find this was! Cannot recommend the lamb ular dish enough along with the chicken biryani. Well priced, great food and friendly service. Have recommended to family members...already.More

If you want to try more authentic Indian food and live in the surrey area, I would recommend trying here! Small restaurant, quite hidden, fairly bland decor inside but the food, both meat, fish and vegetarian is all very good and prices are reasonable.

There were eight of us round the table celebrating my wife’s birthday on Sunday evening, and we had a fantastic delicious meal, with first class service. The menu here at The Kerala has different and interesting dishes, and really superb quality of food. Definitely worth...repeat visits!!More

We have dined at the Kerala both lunchtime and evening on a few occasions after it being recommended by friends. We took two friends there last night after telling them that they must try this place and to expect a rather different curry. They were...totally knocked out by the quality of service how polite and helpful the staff were and information given on various items on the menu and the overall taste of all of the food. The flavours and spices of the curries here are unbelievable and they assured me that they would defo be going back.Only problem if so many people keep going back we might find it hard to get a table!! On leaving I asked if I could thank the kitchen staff and was allowed without hesitation to meet the chefs and I thanked them for an incredible meal. Thanks again BryanMore
