We made a special journey to visit a South Indian restaurant in East Ham and we were pleased we chose this. The inside is pretty basic. When we arrived there was a large group of elderly ladies enjoying a buffet. We we seated and given...menus. We ordered gobi 65 to share and then ordered paratta, Kerala fish curry, mutton curry and a mutton biryani. All the food was delicious with distinct flavours. The tamarind in the fish curry gave it a delicious hint of sourness which complemented the king fish. We had two diet Pepsi’s to drink and were given a complementary taste of a dessert they do. The bill was a reasonable £26. We will definitely return.More
Thanks to this restaurant, Keralan cuisine is my favourite cuisine on earth, and I have been to Kerala and honestly the food here is done better, i dont know how! Dishes that you MUST try (that are always available)
1) Kanava Peera
2) Chicken Nadaan...3) Kerala fish curry
4) Beef roast (duck roast is also good if they have it)
5) Fish Molee here is very well done
6) Mutton roast
Dont waste the real estate in your stomache ordering things like dosas hereMore
We go here quite often and I can die for the mutton roast they serve. Be prepared to wait for 30 minutes. Otherwise try pre-ordering (if they manage to attend your call, consider yourself lucky). The nadan chicken fry is something that people rave about....It is great in quantity too, but I don't find it 'nadan' enough because of the added colour. (I always avoid having it.) The fish curry is always good and so is the appam. I haven't tried their meals, as I always order appam with mutton/beef/fish curry (the appam-fish curry combo is wonderful!) The biriyani is also okay-ish.
The owner/manager is very helpful and hospitable. He is happy to click pictures for you too! The last time we went, there were a couple of new recruits who had trouble with taking orders and serving on time. The mutton roast we ordered went to another table. I hope they are better now because we are going again this weekend.
Nevertheless, I love the place as it offers (almost) authentic Kerala food at economic rates.More
Located on the High Street just across from East Ham tube station. The nearest parking - roadside pay and park on one of the many adjacent roads. Ambiance is pretty average; but food was great - authentic Kerala cuisine. People not used to that may...find it a touch spicy. They could do better in terms of service and cleanliness.More
I went with a friend to introduce our Kerala cuisine for the first time , but regretted it later ,should've gone on my own .
The toilets both gents and ladies were in a horrible state . In both the toilets there was only one...toilet roll which was found soaking in a mug full of water in the wash basin . And toilet door locks broken and a door that would not move .The foul smell from the toilet comes into the eating area .
Food wise they have a lot of choices which is good and reasonably low priced .
The kappa(tapioca)and fish was old and had begun to take a stale smell.
The puttu (steamed rice cake) was very mediocre .i asked for a ghee and sugar to eat with it but the ghee was stale .
The good parts were the fish Mollie , fried pomfret and porotta and appam which felt fresh .The best dish was the fish mollie. The beef ularthiathu had more than it's share of onions but it was ok to eat .
It took 1 1/2 hrs to get the starters which was a tea and banana fritters (Pazham pori) , I had to go and ask if the food was ready or not .
They probably need more well trained staff .
I would prefer going to this restaurant only if I'm with similar minded malayalee friends who may need a quick taste of Kerala on tight budget .
All in all a below average restaurant which can be improved and also the staff seemed very polite probably because they're already aware of the poor state of the restaurant .More
Fast food?? No way is this a fast food restaurant!! We waited an hour and 20 minutes for our food to arrive. They didn’t have 50% of the dishes we wanted to order, not sure why it’s on the menu! When the food finally arrived...not everything arrived together and then to find some of the dishes we ordered was cancelled without our knowledge. The Food wasn’t fantastic for the amount of time we waited for it either. Unless you have plenty of time to wait for less than average food don’t bother going if you’re hungry. When we complained the manager was blaming it on the staff and wasn’t even apologetic.
We definitely will not be going back!!More
