Visited the restaurant on 09/08/2013 with family. The traditional meals served was below average in taste and quantity. The chicken biriyani served was horrible. First time we had such an experience. The "Irachi Ularthiyathu" served was just half cooked meat with two or three pepper in it. The SERVICE was VERY POOR. After serving the dishes nobody attended us.

Ela serves a concise menu of authentic Keralan dishes. We went back three times just so we could try as much as possible and the menu has english descriptions in it so you can make more informed decisions which is helpful. The atmosphere isn't the most comfortable but the food more than makes up for it!

Not sure about the 'terrible' experiences two reviewers have had as we visited Ela three times over the course of our stay as the food was and still is some of the best we ate whilst travelling India for 5 months. Some very intuitive recipes which adapted traditional meals into their own ideas. Our three visits were so we could sample as much of the menu as possible, never ordering the same thing and being very pleased every time with our order. Very well priced for such good food as well and I would return in the future for sure.

Absolutely delicious Kerala cuisine. This restaurant is in Ernakulam not far from the Fort Kochi ferry terminal. I stumbled across the restaurant quite by accident one lunchtime - a menu is displayed outside. I ordered simple fare - chicken and kingfish curry - delicious. The next day I was back for lunch for another delicious meal. What a change from some of the over-priced and very ordinary restaurants in Fort Kochi. Ask the helpful manager to explain the menu.
