Repeat customer. SOUTH Indian cuisine here - rare in NZ! Delicate flavours like tamarind don't get swamped by chilli etc. Their masala dosa is out of this world! Light, crispy pancake with creamy vege filling. Last night we had fish, chicken, lamb, beef, all top quality tender cuts, in delicious sauces. And the lightest paratha you can imagine. Don't miss this place when you're in New Plymouth. Oh, and the staff are great too. They'll help you choose dishes to suit your taste.

We had the masala dosa and it was gorgeous. We then had vegetable mumera and lamb biryani, chicken chinadunh and all were great. We'd go every week if we lived in New Plymouth.

Yummy! What a treat, so tasty. Authentic food just like that in Kerala. Great value, relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Lunch or dinner, masala dosa is a must! We will be going back!

Yes, I mean it.. I been to almost all South Indian Restaurant in North Island and Kathakali is unique, the only place where tradition is not compramised. Being a Keralite, I must say, this is truly traditional and authentic, food tastes similar to what my mom's makes at our home back in Kerala. Thanks to the team at Kathakali for your courage in keeping the tradition rather than westernising it.
