We needed guaranteed vegetarian food in Kyoto. The food was delicious rich and authentic. We shared a Dosa as a starter. Then paneer and dhal, with naan and raita. Followed by coconut ice cream and masala tea. The service was excellent and the proprietor was very helpful in menu choices.

Heard of this place on a blog for eating GF in Japan, so we gave it shot. The man who served us was so nice, the menu was in English and he was able to confidently tell us what was GF and what wasn't. We eat a lot of curry at home in Aus and genuinely found it to be... More

We went here on a rainy day craving for Indian food. Don't confuse yourself with Kerala(a place in South India), the cuisine here is mostly North Indian. This place has good ambience and the food is fantastic. Not that tough on h wallet either. Recommended if you want a slice of India in Kyoto.

The owner was rude to us and said that we cant order only certain things and need to order a minimum of some amount. This was extremely disappointing and we felt bad. Rest assure we are never going there again.

Visited this restaurant with family for dinner as we were on the lookout for a vegetarian meal. Read online about Kerela, and we were looking forward to a good meal given the high ratings. But as if turns out, the ratings were misleading. The service by owner was dry, complacent and borderline rude. The wait was an excruciatingly long 45... More

We visited Kerala after needing a break from the Japanese kitchen and pork with almost no vegetables (shocking!!). So we read reviews on Kerala and saw the *star* in the lonely planet and decided to give it a go. The restaurant was full when we came in and we were asked to wait, which was fine. The welcome could have... More

If you really want to hear and observe rude behavior, then only visit this place. Out of many Indian restaurants visited during our trip to Japan, this one is the worst. Forget about food, we have to move out of the Resturant due to very rude behavior of the person who attended us (he mentioned himself as the owner and... More
