Best Mallu (Malayalee or Kerala) food by far! The egg roast and appam / kerala paratha is to die for! The vegetarian food is also excellent - Avial, Veg stew, Puttu Kadala, Appams, Kerala parathas, Okra / Ladies finger curry with coconut milk, Ulli (Small onion) theeyal curry are all seriously flavourful and amazing! The Kerala fish curry, fish fingers... More

Our driver recommended this Jewel of a place. We had to wait to be seated as this place was buzzing. The best part is that i thought the guy forgot about us, and was pleasantly surprised when we ere called in. The food was delightful and the ambiance was very nice. Will definitely recommend

The restaurant is not cheap by any means, but you will need to wait to be served as it is very busy around lunch time. The Karimeen fry, which is the speciallity, was a bummer... More
