“nice food, grumpy service”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

kerala is my favourite restaurant in zurich for tasty Indian food. The food here is excellent especially dishes like Vada curry and Bhindi Masala. However the service is quite grumpy and sometimes rude. Inspite of this, the restaurant is always crowded only due to the great food.

“Nicely presented, quality comes with a Swiss price tag”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Kerala offers far wider Indian regional dishes than the name suggests, but having entered the attractively-decorated interior, one gets a shock when one sits down & sees the prices asked for what later turns out to be for the seasoned traveller, unspectacular but competent cooking.
A great deal of skill in presenting little is suppose to seduce your wallet..but dated table style like ye olde sizzling platter with the (few)tandoor chicken pieces supported by pineapple slices & frilly lettuce et al a value dish doth not make, Tiny bowls of curry in baby containers if ordered without the aforesaid sizzlers would result in a very bleak table laid before the diner.
Put simply, this is too expensive, even though the food IS nice & for the most part quite well achieved.
Interestingly, they DO have the little-known Grover's Indian red wine on their card..but at prices HIGHER than quality Chilean..& that's plain absurd!
Should you be on an expense account or simply don't care, this is quite good...but Wow! Its a lot of money for not much to eat.

“Authentic, tasty & value for money”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I have been to this restaurant many times in past 2 years, and without doubt this is the best Indian restaurant I've been to in Switzerland. Consistency of taste & good service is the highlight. Anyone from south India would love the authenticity of sambar vada, Beef piralan, Vypeen fish curry and Curry leaves Prawns from this restaurant. The price may look high, but its worth every penny.
