Place where you can relish authentic south Indian food. Chicken chetinad is the one i liked a lot. If you are in new plymouth don't miss it!

I’ve been a big fan of this place for the last 3 years. Normally excellent food. Tonight we ordered food to pick and it was as if it was from a different restaurant. The curry was extremely watery and tasteless, we didn’t actually finish it...More

Just great food from a great team. Our party of 6 tried both the starters and mains and we were all impressed with the dishes ordered. Good sized portions, so go hungry if you wish to tackle the full menu of three courses. Highly recommended...More

This restaurant serves authentic southern Indian food. The staff are mostly from Kerala & the spices they use in their food are great. We were a group of four so each ordered a different dish to share.everything was fresh & tasty.

Being from kerala, it is appreciative that the restaurant has been innovative in linking curries to local names of places in kerala. The chicken biriyani with fried chicken in it was a good version.. The fish moiled, appam, porotta was all nice.

Kerala is a southern state of India. They grow spices. Hence expectations are high which were really met. Good fish, parathas and lamb biryanis. Also try chicken chettinadu which has good flavours. Prices are reasonable. Can't wait to revisit.
