The service is efficient and relatively quick. the space has the semblance of fine dine. I tried the veg meal. It's decent food but i wouldn't call it authentic Kerala cuisine.

One of the few Kerala restaurants in Chennai with an average food quality. Karimeen pollichathu is excellent but rest all dishes are just ordinary. The price is very very overpriced. Don't be shocked after seeing the bill.

Malayali food at its non-veg best. It's great malayali food particularly because a Syrian Christian family from Kerala runs it and they know their food. The beef is excellent (if u like coconut in ur beef, that is), the karimeen [green chromide] (a variety of overrated, heavily boned, flat, dark brackishwater fish) is well made. Eat, if u love Kerala,... More

If you want to taste Kerala food, this is the right place to go. Some of their best dishes are Karimeen Fry, Malabar fish curry, tomato soup and Malabar prawns curry.

Out here you get true value for money. The food is very reasonably priced and the quality is great. The Malabar parottas and egg Appams are my personal favorites. I have not only been here but also visited their other branches and I have always been pleased. The service might lack warmth but they make up with tasty food. Kerala... More

We have gone to this restaurant a number of times.The food is always spicy and tasty. The crab and karimeen are our all time favourites. But the staff are neither friendly nor warm. Though the food makes it one of our favourite places to eat, the atmosphere due to the cold staff does not make us feel like lingering.

It is one of the few typical Kerali Hotels of good standard. Fish dishes with coconut, main and side dishes prepared in coconut oil with its distinguishing aroma appeals many a non-Keraltes as well.
