Enté Keralam

Keralan in Chennai (Madras)

A calm ambience seeps through the four orange-toned, three- to four-table rooms of this elegant Keralan restaurant. Lightly spiced pachakkari vegetable stew is served with light, fluffy appam (rice pancake), the Alleppey curry is rich with mango, and there are plenty of fish dishes. Wind up with tender coconut ice cream. Set meals (veg/nonveg ₹945/1450) give a multidish miniformat taster.
