Keralam Indian Restaurant in Paphos, Cyprus

Two travellers Mumbo and Jumbo came to kerala for a short vacation. But they hit the jackpot while enjoying their stay there, they surrendered their forks and knives in lieu of their right hands to enjoy the scrumptious cuisine of Kerala.
The mouth watering dishes of Kerala created an appetite so strong in them, that they ended up opening a Kerala restaurant for the people of Cyprus. This way they could eat to their heart’s content and also share these dishes with the much deserving Cypriots.
The above menu contains an assorted array of dishes tasted and approved by Mumbo and Jumbo and are guaranteed to set your stomach craving for more.

So says the story written on the last page of the menu card at the Keralam restaurant. And, it is 100% true, the food there indeed makes you crave for more. As they claim, it is the only authentic south-indian restaurant in Cyprus and as far as i know, the only place where you get Dosas and Parottas (not the indian Paratha).

I am used to Indian restaurants being North Indian and having South Indian dishes on a separate page (or in a remote corner). But this one is South Indian and you experience this right from the time you open the menu. Urulai Kazhangu, Meen Curry and Kerala Parotta. Authentic South indian, indeed! You also have the Thali on a copper dish with the various side-dishes in small cups

It is not a once-a-week kind of restaurant with the prices being slightly on the higher side, more so for us because it is a 1.5 hr drive from Limassol to Coral Bay, but it is definitely a good restaurant to go to for special occasions as the ambience complements the good food.

Go ahead, enjoy a nice dinner at Keralam. Call them on their phone at 26622877 for reservations.
