The restaurant serves authentic Kerala food . Probably the few places outside central London that serves such food, and with a personalised touch. The food is amazing and the chef personalises food to suit customer preferences. Would highly recommend for family and people who would...like experience a bit of ‘Gods own country’!More

This is a very authentic Indian restaurant specialising in south Indian/Keralan cuisine. We had a few dishes including a masala dosa and vada, both of which were superb. The curries we ordered were also excellent. Sadly for a Friday night, the restaurant was deserted -...we were the only people there. If Oottupura could consider changing the lighting, making it a little less harsh, give it a more Indian decorative feel and most definitely, as at least one other review suggested, change the music - then I'm sure it could capture more of the diners from Dastaan across the road. But don't let that put you off if you want authentic and quality Indian food.More

If you are looking for a menu with the regular matrix of Indian offerings ranging from Korma to Vindaloo chicken, lamb, vegetable and rice dishes this isn’t the place for you. Oottapura is where you’ll experience authentic South Indian and Sri Lankan cuisine of rare...excellence. Dosas, hoppers, amongst a well constructed bespoke menu ensures an excellent dining or lunching experience.More

Most local people tend to talk about Dastaan, which is over he road. How foolish they are!! The food here is really tasty, spicy and thoroughly different. We tried the dosa which was amazing. We followed that up with the salmon curry which was fabulously...tasty and full of healthy ingredients!! Great service too and outstanding and soothing Indian music. This is where it’s at guys!!!More

Everything was fabulous. Staff were friendly and attentive, waiting times...were just rightand chef was thanked for producing a curry for us not on the menu. Really good experience.

Dosa was not available because something was broken in the kitchen . The...Naan was burnt and we were told that it’s how tandoori naan is like .

Well what can I say when we got to the resturant at the time of our booking the manager looked at us and said he rang us to tell us to come early as he has a larger booking later. 1st he may have rang...but didnt leave a message so didnt know 2nd we booked a table before the large booking. The manager then proceeded to say he wasnt sure if he coulr accommodate our booking as the larger booking was coming later and he didnt have enough staff. I was shocked he was asking if we could leave because they were short staffed and the larger booking was more important. Terrible customer service such rude front of house!More

We have been a takeaway customer for a while during lockdown and recently called in for a meal in the restaurant. It's hard to come across genuine, authentic Indian food but we found it here. Large portions and just completely delicious. We generally order from...the South Indian section, the dosas etc... It's like being transported back to India... Highly recommended!More

We revisited this amazing restaurant for the first time since lockdown restrictions were eased in May 2021, and found it to be just as excellent as previously. Super friendly staff, amazing flavours in the food, which is all cooked in house to authentic recipes. Don't...expect a run of the mill 'curry house'. Although all the usual dishes are on the menu, go a little off piste and order one of the chef's special's, you won't be disappointed . The chef gets an amazing array of sensations in every dish. Bursting with flavour. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. I really hope people flock back there now they are reopen.More
