The Kerala fish style is very tasty, i ate one of the favourite Kerala state fish "Karimeen" which is also known as Pearl Spot Fish, it is wonderful taste and awesome. I tried this fish in my home, but i haven't got that taste... More

This is a busy restaurant and reservations are strongly recommended. The food is very good. The Malabar Paratha and Appams were excellent as were the Malabar Fried Prawns and the Karrimeen Pollichathu. The mutton stew which is a Kerala Christian specialty was outstanding and a firm favourite of ours especially when eaten with the Appam (hoppers). Chicken curry was also... More

Had a very bad experience, would not recommend this to anyone!!! Service was very, very poor and took more than 30 minutes for our food to be served. And two times the incorrect order was served! And in the ground floor the place reeked of uncooked non-vegetarian food, almost like a spoilt smell!!!

If you are in Chennai and needs some Malayali Food, this is just the place to be. Amazing ambience and food, from starters to dessert. (Its costly by the way)

Visited this restaurant with a business friend from Bombay who wants to try Kerala food. We tried most of their seafood dishes we enjoyed the meen moilee the most. Sulaimani was not up to the mark as I've had better in many places in Kerala. The staff's were attentive and explained the dishes really well.

This is a treat for people who love kerala food. The Chicen and Lamb gravies were superb. You should also try the Fry fish ( seer fish). The price is reasonable, and the service is fast. A bowl of gravy should be enough for 3 people. The wheat parathas are worth giving a try.

Visited this cosy restaurant with family - enjoyed some excellent vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes! From appams and parottas to the best veg stews and yummy seafood options, the restaurant impressed us with every dish! Definitely worth a regular visit!

Good Kerala food. A little too good service to the point of being officious. :) They insist on standing by your table to serve you when you finish your plate.. The veg biryani was so so so good. And the Masala buttermilk umm. They are right opposite Leela Palace. If you stay at leila's and want to try different foods,... More
