Really loved the food with different spices and flavors. Loved the Savoury Lentil Doughnuts and Dosa with the chutney. The food is absolutely great and you won't be disappointed. The Staff members are really friendly and helpful. Will definitely come again.

My wife and l had a craving for Indian meal and looked up TripAdvisor for advice, and we don’t regret the recommendation. The dinner we had at Kathakali was possibly the best Indian meal we have ever had in NZ and India.

This place serves South Indian food from Kerala. The menu is certainly different from your standard Indian restaurant and all four of us agreed that it was an excellent choice behaving been to Kerala, I can say that it is genuine.
