Having eaten there before once, as part of a group, this time when i again went to Croydon, thought of having a try. This time it was 5 of us and all of were really like the quality and taste of food. Its Typically Kerala style. I went there about 4.30 pm and i thought the set luch would be over and ordered from there normal A la carte. But later found out they were still serving it. The menu is unbelievably cheap and the food extremely tasty. Mutton Olarthiyathu, Sardine fry, Chicken Biriyani, Mutton Biriyani, Appams King fish fry, Chicken Fry, Kadala curry etc were spot on.. Kappa biriyani didnt impress us much.

Dont expect anything else from this place. Ambience, Service, etc.. Hygeine is about 2 out of 5. Noisy TV running all through the day.

Do i visit there again... yes definitely, just for the food as i know what to expect.

I am South Indian (just across the western ghats from Kerala). The food here was superb and just how it should be: spicily cooked and full of flavour. With the biriyani they give you appalam - a typically Kerala accompaniment. The service too is good and very quick - and did I mention it is extremely affordable. I took a detour here on my way to gatwick airport and am I glad I did! Another one to add to my secret (-ish!) list of superb authentic Indian restaurants in London!

For the same dosa you get in neighbouring Indian restaurant, this place charges you half the price. They make better briyani then some other neighbours although I prefer to get a takeaway from this place than to eat in. Also, there is a washing facility to the right of the bar/counter unlike what the previous reviewer mentioned.

Taste of Kerala, when I visited, seemed like a nice restaurant. It was fairly new and it had a nice atmosphere. The food was nice, but not the best ever. Overall, a good experience!
