We shared three of the starters to begin. Kake's favourite of these was the uthappam (£4.50) photo, a slightly sour rice/lentil pancake topped with fresh tomatoes, curry leaves, chillies, and onions, and served with a curry sauce and a tasty coconut chutney. Chilli paneer (£6) photo was OK, though not amazing, and not really worth £6. Cashew nut pakoda (£4) photo was a bit bar-snack-like, but considered by Ewan to be very tasty.
Kake's main — vellappam with chicken Malabar (£7) photo — was disappointing. The vellappam itself, a fermented rice-based pancake, was just fine, but the accompanying chicken Malabar tasted like the boil-in-the-bag "curries" my mum used to make us eat in the '80s. Ewan's avial (£3 as a side dish) was a little tricky to eat, as its main ingredient was a gourd-type pod with an inedible skin, but tasty enough.
Service was fine. The waiter correctly offered the wine to Kake to taste, as the person who ordered it (a refreshing change from all those places which default to offering it to one of the men). They were also happy to be summoned over to identify the mystery vegetable in Ewan's avial.
