Great little restaurant serving delicious delicacies from the Southern state of Kerala. We ordered the veg taster plate for starters - which lets you pick 4 different starters plus a mini masala dosa. Of special mention were the quality of the dosa, the medhu vada, and the eggplant fry (all on the appetizers menu) - accompanying chutneys / dips could have had a bit more 'punch' but overall great opening the meal. Mains were Egg Curry and Veg Korma - both were very different from similar dishes I've had at other Kerala restaurants around the world, but tasty in their own right. Definitely recommend the veg korma paired with Malabar Parottas. The show-stealer was the Appam - perfectly cooked steamed pancakes that went very well with the Egg Curry. Don't forget to finish off the meal with a Masala Chai - not your British cup of tea, but aromatic cardamom infused in a full-milk-based tea. Thoroughly satisfying meal - at such a reasonable price - we will definitely be back! Our waiter Ajoy Varghese was very friendly and answered all our questions. Only suggestion would be for them to a) increase the number of waiter staff, and b) bring out the food much more 'steaming hot' rather than just warm. Otherwise, top quality Indian fare that most would never have tasted in traditional 'curry houses'.

Just been for a great meal at the Kerala Café. Living in Bradford there are many different places to eat, but the Kerala Café is right up there with the best. Unfortunately the service was a little slow, but the food more than make up for it.

Had Kerala food in London, loved it, and so when we saw kerala cafe, had to try it.
Very basic decor, and real smiling staff, good start.
ordered Biriani, partner Keralan chicken curry.
Both were v good, freshly cooked (you can tell) and not drowned in oily sauces.
Lovely flavours in the Biriani, light, fresh herbs and spices amid perfectly cooked rice, a meal in itself.
Anyone loving curries should give this place a try, it will open up new horizons about authentic Southern Indian cuisine.
Bill came to less than £20 for two, amazing value for really good food.
Not licensed, so BYO wine/beer and have a great (inexpensive)feast.

Ok so it's atmosphere could be better BUT it serves hot tasty gorgeous real indian food at such reasonable prices. The waitor should have had more help but he was absolutely wonderful so kind professional friendly and sweet I hope he is appreciated by management.
