“Amazing food in a basic restaurant”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

This is some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten, we went to the restaurant twice during our stay. It has the appearance of a cafe but the food is definately worth it. The place was full of locals and the service was perfect and the food tasted amazing. well cooked with diferent flavours. Its not a place for a romantic evening or a leisurely long eveing meal, but if you like good food and flavours then this is definately the place to go.

“Tasty food in fairly basic setting”
Reviewed March 3, 2010

Food was tast y and generous. Service was prompt and efficient. However the atmosphere is very bland - plain white walls, paper napkins, cheap glassware etc. I recommend as a place for a reasonably priced tasty meal but not for a romantic dinner.

“busy favourite with locals and visitors”
Reviewed February 2, 2009

We visited Kaliammans for the first time last week (Jan 09) as a result of this Forum and it was even better than we had hoped. The family patriarch personnaly supervises front of house and ensures everything is clean and in order.

All areas of the Sub Continent are reperesented in its menu, the south Indian "Malabar" fish and prawn dishes being particulary good. We had to go back for a second visit and everything we had was excellent with no "after effects" at all, not even in the wallet department as the prices are very reasonable, especially as it is an air conditioned restaurant and not a nazi kandar.

All being well we will be in Penang again next year and I know exactly where we will be heading.
