This place is unusual in several respects, and I highly recommend this establishment to anyone who wants something different from "regular" Indian food. First, the atmosphere and appearance. The place is unassuming from the outside, but kind of cozy and nice on the inside. It looked like they might have beer on tap (that would have been really nice), but the hardware you see there when you walk in the door is non-functional, at least for now. We were met in a cheerful fashion, and there was no wait, even on that pleasant Saturday evening, unusual for such a highly rated restaurant, in a busy location. For appetizers, we tried the vada, and the onion pakora, both of which were excellent, not too oily, and perfectly cooked. For entree, I had the Elayil Pollichathu, made with Salmon by cooking it in a special sauce, wrapped in a banana leaf. It was exceptionally good. The menu is not too big, but there are a number of unique entrees which looked very tempting (next time). Since the food is generally from Southern India, specifically from the Kerala region, you'll see menu items here which you won't see in most other Indian restaurants, and I suspect that the special dishes from Kerala are probably all very tasty. Service was friendly and generally efficient, although the fish cooked in the banana leaf took some extra time to prepare (and this was mentioned to us beforehand). I'm sure I'll be back for more!
