“Southern Delight, Kerala Treat!”

Hotel Deluxe Restaurant
Ranked #195 of 14,763 Restaurants in Mumbai (Bombay)
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Of the many south indian restaurants in Mumbai (stand alone and not the ones in five star hotels) this one is in the top 5- for its authenticity and flavors. I always measure and rate a restaurant for the given location/city, of course this is not comparable to some gems in Kerala, but outside of the 'coconut' state, so far away, this is a definite delight! This is a busy working lunch place on week days and is a destination for home food starved keralities. This is a bit larger than a hole in the wall, the street level serves meals in a plate and the first AC (a bit stuffy) floor serves meals on a banana leaf. Open all days, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and a Sunday 'sadhya' special meals. Expect prawn, fish and other Kerala standards, bursting with flavors.

You don't need to be a fan of Kerala cuisine in particular to enjoy the food here. The set-up is very Udipi like, but the food is to die for.

Visit them on a Sunday afternoon and go straight for the "lunch" which is their standard. They lay down a banana leaf on the table, and then begins the barrage of food. It's important to note that the position where they place each menu item on the banana leaf is as per the local custom. They start with the pickle, salt and chips, move over to the veggies, and then the rice topped with generous amount of sambhar.

The best part is that each item on the menu is bursting with a different flavour and you can combine each item to bring out to unique flavour every time you visit!!! Have visited this place multiple times, but haven't been disappointed ever.

At the end, you always feel you have eaten too much, but dont regret it one bit :)

I went to this restaurant with some friends...we had the veg thali (unlimited for Rs. 130) and the Prawns fry..the food is authentic....the boiled red rice & sambhar was delicious as was the curd and cucumber raita...a true value for money meal with excellent service. Do visit early for lunch (we went at 12.45) or you may have to wait for a long time as it gets crowded with the office crowd at lunchtime...

This restaurant serves typical Kerala food and is popular with the Keralites living in Mumbai or visiting Mumbai. I visited the restaurant on the Sunday before Onam, a festival of Kerala with my family for the traditional vegetarian lunch served on Banana leaf. We had to wait for some time to get a table on the first floor ac restaurant which has only 4 or 5 tables. The non ac ground floor is a bit more spacious. Due to the limiited tables service is quite quick as they have lot of people waiting for a table. Non Keralites may not enjoy the food as most of the food is coconut based.

This place is located near my office, and discovered it with friends.
It serves great Kerala food, with authentic tastes, and easy on the pocket!
Fish fry and curry with Boiled rice is my friends fav in non-veg, while I go for veg thali, served on banana leaves and wholesome rice and sambhar. yumm
