We just had an amazing dinner at the New Kerala Cafe. The tandoori fish was excellent as was the Veg Jalfreezi The service was also exceptional and not pushy. Will definitely head back here before we leave

Upon arrival you get a nice cold towel to freshen up which makes the first impression, well...nice and cool! The food is subtle and nicely done.
