There are more great Indian restaurants in the UK than in almost any other country in the world – outside of the subcontinent at the very least – and whether you are in the major metropolises of London, Manchester and Birmingham, right up in Aberdeen or down in deepest Devon, you are sure of finding something to suit your tastes. Indeed, in Devon they can boast a chain with a reputation that extends further than just the West Country in the form of Kerala Delicacies. Their take on the cuisine of India focusses on the southern city of Kerala – home city of Manoj John, their chef and owner – and transports it to New Walk in Totnes, where he brings all of his 20 years of experience in Kerala, the United States, Ireland and now Devon to bear on the eponymous delicacies of his restaurant. We recommend his self-devised crab due to start before picking a fishy favourite such as the monkfish curry with tamarind and coconut paste. Book a table now to enjoy the best curry house in Totnes.
WE had a brilliant meal and the staff were friendly and helpful. This was our first visit and we would definitely recommend Kerala Delicacies to others. Thank you for a good evening.
The food was delicious, although it was difficult to choose from the menu, it as it all sounded so tempting and the service impeccable. I would certainly return to Kerala.
We had a very nice meal, 6 of us all wanting individual dishes made for a bit of a squashy table but the staff coped with all that marvellously. They ran out of the wine we were drinking when we went to order a third bottle, but that was the only blip.
