The owner/manager did not understand me when I asked for the bill in Hindi, but he understands more about Indian fare than I ever will, although we have traveled extensively in India, including Kerala. On our visit, almost half the guests were Indian. The music (soft background) and decor are Indian. Our tandoori chicken dish and paneer excelled in a meal of four delicious a la carte selections that sufficed for the two of us. The bill, including three drinks, was Y5510, quite reasonable for food of this quality. The service was attentive, and the owner/manager, who one reviewer found rude, was cheery and friendly to us and to other guests. Kerala is on the west side of Kawaramachi north of Sanjodori, and you could easily miss it if you walk that side of the street; the sign in front is small. . We spotted it from the east side by the large green lighted script on the second floor saying simply "Indian food."
