Mahabelly is a play on Mahabali - the patron demon-god of Malayalis. The festival of Onam is celebrated to mark Mahabali’s return from the netherworld to his beloved kingdom of Kerala. Mahabelly brings dishes from across the length and breadth of Kerala in a fun, easygoing Saket restaurant. First-timers to Malayali food will be put at ease with helpful hosts around to navigate Mahabelly’s extensive menu. I started with the Syrian Christian dishes of 'Pork Ularthiyathu' and 'Erachi (beef) Fry', which were handsomely fragranced with coconut oil and endlessly moreish with 'Malabar Parottas'. Also, quite impressive was the flaky 'Karimeen Pollichathu' and balanced spicing in the classic 'Kerala Stew', which were somewhat let down by 'Appams' lacking my puffy-centre-crisp-edges gold standard. 'Meen (fish) Moilee' and 'Chemmeen Manga' (prawn and raw mango) curries were as good as you can expect in Delhi with a savoury tang and velvety coconut-milk base. For a special treat, enjoy them with 'Kappa' (Mashed tapioca) and end your meal with a classic 'Payasam'.
You don't miss Kerala when you are here. The preparation is so authentic that you will love it. The service is awesome.
The place is very comfortable and cozy. Thats the first impression. The staff is friendly and helpful in suggestions and explanation. The food is really very delicious and huge difference from the North Indian flavours of butter chicken, rogan josh, kadhai chicken etc. The best part of their cuisine is that it has dishes which range from bland to spicy - black pepper to chillies, which will suit every member of the family's palate. The malabar parantha is indeed very yummy along with Appam, We availed Zomato Gold's offer of 1+1 on drinks at Sunday's dinner. Highly recommended.
Excellently delicious chicken briyani that I have tasted in Delhi which comes with raita. The filtered coffee was good too
Have eaten here 8 or 10 times. Had a wonderful meal every single time. The food is just outstanding, the menu is very interesting. You literally can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
Mahabelly brings Kerala's best flavors in the capital . Though the ambience is not that fancy but every dish has a very distinct flavor that would remind you of typical coastal food. The interiors are artistically done. My top recommendations- 1) Mulagi fried idli- full of spices, this fried delight is a must try. 2) Naadaan paneer masala- delicate soft paneer cubes in silky coconut gravy. It was lip smacking and absolutely mouth watering. 3) Pacha Manga Curry- delightful tangy, creamy gravy with raw mangoes in coconut milk gravy- the flavors of this dish will blow your mind. It paired up fantastically with appam. 4) Breads- I totally loved their appams and malabar parotta. This place is certainly a hidden gem. I am in love with their preparation- each and every dish was delish. Lots of fresh veggies, coconut, tamarind, and distinct spices are the core essence of this cuisine.

To navigate the culinary depth of Kerala, one no longer has to buy a one-way ticket to God’s own country. The food of Kerala is not limited to sambhars and appams as one might assume, it’s so much more. To tag the food of Kerala as just South Indian would be a sacrilege. Coastal food is a much more appropriate term. Several restaurants in the city are moving beyond the dosais and exploring the coast menus in depth. The great influence of seafood in coastal cuisine of Kerala is not substituted with vegetables to suit the palates of Delhiites but rather celebrated in it’s originality. ‘Mahabelly’ is a fine example for that. A play on Mahabali, the patron demi-god of Malayalis, Mahabelly is kind of a patron God of coastal food lovers. It’s snazzy location behind DLF Place Mall, Saket is a happening one.
The menu of Mahabelly brims with classic regional dishes of Kerala. Coastal belt of this state is their primary focus. Seafood is in abundance so if you are partial to prawns and fish, Mahabelly could be your new favorite. While tackling the menu give the booze a skip and rather settle for a traditional non-alcoholic beverage. A tender coconut water would be a refreshing start. Like a true Malayali, wade into the menu through mulagu fried idli, pork fry, kothu-porotta and squid varathathu. Save your appetite for the coastal curries such as, vegetable stew, prawn mango curry, mutton roast, erachi varattiyathu, aila pollichathu, vegetable kurma, alleppey fish curry, naadan paneer masala, surmai roast, mutton curry and chicken stew. Pair it off with traditional Malayali bread, appam, puttu or Malabar parotta.
To pamper your sweet tooth round off your meal with a caramel custard, sweet coconut dosa with ice cream & banana jam, caramelized banana with ice cream & palm treacle or payasam of the day. Prices are somewhat affordable. Mahabelly is one of the pocket-friendly eateries in the mall’s restaurant block. When you enter Mahabelly, you find yourself in a pleasant looking dining room done up in a way to infuse traditional Kerala curios with modern infrastructure. The dining room is smartly furnished with solid wooden tables and eye-catching South Indian trinkets. The vibe is lively, comfortable and a tad old-fashioned. It’s a good place to take your family to for a hearty meal or cool down your heels in between shopping.
