If you're staying in the exclusive Poes Garden area of Chennai, this is a must visit! The quality of food together with the excellent service makes for a really memorable evening. We were looked after by Muthu Kumorran, ultra professional and very friendly with lots of recommendations for highlights of a very extensive Kerelan menu. He also expressed a genuine... More

I have been at Ente Keralam several times and trust me, it would be difficult to get such a quality food anywhere. The rates are high though its a VIP restaurant, but its worth the quality of served.

I've been back a couple of times since the last review, and just wanted to add a strong recommendation for the "King's Meal" (an elaborate thali -- I've just tried the veg version) even though it is an enormous amount of food. My experience has been that ordering individual dishes off the menu is a bit hit-or-miss, but that everything... More

Great location, food and service. Thalassery biriyani and meals at this place is one of the best that you can get. But the prices are insanely high and quite unreasonable. Recommended for some special occasions when you feel like splurging.

I always visit here when I miss Kerala cuisine to try the meals or appam or paratha with Kerala style Chicken or Fish(Squid, Prawns are my favourite). The service, ambiance are all excellent , but the price is a little high compared to other Kerala restaurants.
