“An Ethnic restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

A restaurant offering true ethnicity to food and ambiance.
Understand the owner chef of Ela personally takes care of the dishes so that food quality is never compromised.
Its a value for money resturant, where you can go with your family or friends..

“Best Food in Town”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

Cochin is my favourite town in India. I must confess - I am biased to the town.

I have tried many great places to hang out and eat. Ela comes on top for me due to its simplicity. The lunch was an amazing value. The flavours awesome, authentic - absolute delight. Service was prompt and attentive. This place over delivers for the money you pay.

The only regret is - I live too far to eat here everyday. it is simple home style dining experience.

Go there - ASAP. It's worth every penny!

“Authentic food, very friendly owner/manager”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Very authentic and good tasting Kerala food. The manager is friendly and very helpful, he even remembered me from onepreviously.

If you are a westerner like me you will find the service slow and the toilets upstairs less than desirable...but this is India.

I've been to this restaurant several times alone and with a friend.
