It was my first visit to Ente Keralam in Chennai. The food was ok - nothing great but decent value for money. The service was good though.

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Ente Keralam is one of our favourite restaurants and a place we take quite a few of our visitors to. Serving food from Kerala, it is a unique restaurant which consistently serves good food. Their Syrian Christian dishes are excellent, especially their beef cutlets. Also try their karimeen pollichathu, which is pearl fish cooked in bana leaf- delicious! My husband always has their idiyappam and kadalai kari. We were not very happy with the other branch of this restaurant,
located in MRC Nagar.

“Kerala Cuisine at its best”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Sumptuous kerala Tali. Unbeatable. We went to the one in Poes Garden. My friends had the beef cutlet and it was just too good. The ala carte is also good, but the tali is a combination of all the things that i wanted to have. They even can change some of the side dishes to suit your choice. Over all experience Fantabulous

“Lovely Kerala Food”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

A keralite friend of ours had had taken us to this resturent last year.Since then we are visiting Ente Kerala various outlets at least once a month.We used to order parotas ,mutton stu ,vegetable dishes in rotation and payasam .For the first time a few days back we tried their Kari mean and app ams beside mutton stu etc.We were totally thrilled .Kari mean was very tasty and quite unique .The special masala was really great .On the whole food is very good.Price is slightly on higher side and the desert portions could be little larger.Kari mean though very tasty is quite expensive.mostly Kerala people come here and I did not see any north Indian during our visits.Since the food is of new type for non keralites they may reduce the prices a little and advertise to make the hotel more popular .There is a good potential
