A little joint at Bannerghatta road, Malabar serves some of the best Kerala cuisine. The decor isn’t fancy but the food is lip-smackingly good. They serve a wide variety of Kerala cuisine.

Average cost of meal for two is Rs. 350. Alcohol is not served.

The Chef Master restaurant in Jayanagar is small and congested and tables are arranged close together. But when the crispy fried fish arrives at your table with Kerala parota and thick-gravy chicken curry, who cares about the ambience!

The first choice of customers here is fish. All the fish preparations are an absolute hit. Fish curry meals are popular among office goers coming for lunch. After fish, comes a delectable range of snacks like appam-egg curry, idiappam-ishtu (stew) and pazham pori (yellow banana bhajjis) in the evenings. It is a must-try for all the Kerala cuisine lovers.

Average cost of meal for two is Rs 300. Alcohol is not served.
