Great location, food and service. Thalassery biriyani and meals at this place is one of the best that you can get. But the prices are insanely high and quite unreasonable. Recommended for some special occasions when you feel like splurging.

I always visit here when I miss Kerala cuisine to try the meals or appam or paratha with Kerala style Chicken or Fish(Squid, Prawns are my favourite). The service, ambiance are all excellent , but the price is a little high compared to other Kerala restaurants.

I did not like very much the meat cutlets as the only flavor you could taste was pepper! Though the Malabar curry fish and the jack fruit ice cream were excellent! The ambiance and the service are very good too.

Even though, there was a waiting time, the turn around was quick. Missed papadam, which is part of any Sadhya and disappointed by the excessive use of Plastic

Had been to Ente Keralam near Poes Garden for lunch. Surprisingly it was free and not crowded that day. Tried Rajakeeyam - A Kings Meal. Staffs were courteous, bit over attentive on that day, probably as there was not much of crowd. Food was amazing. Started with Karrikin vellam (taste was too good, we had twice)...prawns, dry fried squid and... More
