This place has the best food in KK! Already excited to come back. Definetely recommend fish head curry, veggies and the fried chicken (varuval). Although, to be honest I loved the whole menu.

What a way to start the day. To have a hearty Indian food especially if it is South Indian. All with the various dishes infront of you, you don’t know what to start with!! But it was a money’s worth.
