The Rain Gods have not been kind to the beautiful state of Kerala this year. Nevertheless, it is heartening to see that humanity has stood strong and rallied around God’s Own Country. With Onam celebrations perhaps being toned down this year, it is still right that we celebrate all those who got together to help our Malayali brethren. While you do your part in the relief operations, you can also partake of the traditional Sadya at these 7 great Kerala cuisine restaurants in Bangalore.
If you are looking for a setting that transports you to Kerala and food that does the same too, then Vembanad is where you should be heading for Onam this year.
There will be some live performances for you to take in as well. Here is what you need to know:
25 August: Onam Ela Sadya (12:30 PM to 03:00 PM)
26 August: Onam brunch (Noon to 4)
Prices begin at Rs 999++
Possibly among the top names that come to mind for an Onam Sadya, Ente Keralam will host the feast from August 24th - August 26th for lunch at Rs 899 AI. Only on the August 26th will the meal be available for dinner as well.
