A good Keralan restaurant, named after the sea port, and offering contempory dishes from that region of Southern India.
Their wide ranging menu covers all the bases, with dishes ranging from 'Seafood Rasam' (lentil broth with seasonal seafood and spices); 'Crumb Fried Mussels' (flavoured with a spicy paste, then coted in breadcrumbs) and 'Kerala Spicy Chicken' among the starters.
Whilst Chicken, Duck, Lamb, Fish, Prawns, Squid and Vegetables all feature amongst the mains. Main course dishes such as 'Syrian Lamb' (a delicacy brought in by Syrian Christians) and 'Ulli Theeyal' ( a Hindu squid dish flavoured with tamarind) and 'Navaratna Curry' (with chopped vegetables and mixed dried fruits) show the diversification.
If you still have room for pud - 'Crepe Meltis (a Kerala version of pancakes - with candied orange zest & ice cream) or 'Carrot Halwa' might be there to tempt you.
