One of my friend from sharjah invited me for a lunch at the Salkara in Ansar Mall. Very surprising to have a food court for Ansar mall and to find Salkara there is another surprise. The ambience is a bit weak but the food was amazing and the service was outstanding. I had chicken Mappaas and Pathiri it was excellent... More

Good for the Kerala meals. Delicious . love their fish curries and fries. Service is quick. But the place is really crowdy. Have to wait outside during the weekends. But other good option.

I actually don't really enjoy Indian food all that much, but Salkara's Chicken Biryani never disappoints. You get all four sauces and the dish is already so fragrant to begin with! On top of that, the waiters are fairly patient and try to explain and suggest things I might want to try, although their English is limited. Their delivery is... More

Eventhough with exceptional crowd on weekend days we can go there without any doubt since they won't compromise on the taste and quality of food.After a tiring shopping at lulu Hypermarket it's a relaxing place for most of us and hav homely food.the ambience is pretty good with larger seating capacity after renovation.they have decorated with funny cartoons all around....

Piping hot tasty meals at a reasonable price. Added Malabari Fish fry. Quick and prompt service. Lunch is quite popular. Easy access from Stadium Metro Station. Cons : the bussing/clearance trolleys going around filled with soiled plates and bowls is not an appetizing site especially in a crowded restaurant with narrow spaces. They should try and cover these trolleys and... More

We never expected such low quality food from Salkara, we have been visit their branches in the past also and never had such Experiance. I believe this is the time for the owners to rethink about the service and quality of food they serve to the customers. We had one chicken mulakilittathu and vegetable curry, both were very bad 😳...

Salkara is a Paragon Group enterprise. That’s Paragon of Calicut Paragon fame for those who haven’t guessed, which by default means awesome, value for money Kerala-Malabari food. Taking up half the entire Lulu’s Qusais food court floor area, Salkara is very much a stand-alone restaurant with its own dedicated entrance. Fans of Calicut Paragon will love Salkara, it’s just that... More
