It's back to Kerala for our latest curry leg. Onam, situated at the southern most tip of the curry corridor of Tooting High St, conveniently located around the corner from CURRYBOND HQ I have observed this unassuming venue for some time. From the outside it rocks the black and red signage with red and gold curtains, a bold statement, somewhat... More

We used the Taste Card to dine here and were pleasantly surprised. Onam represents a traditional Kerala diner and is decorated in such a way. Having never tried Kerala food before I was won over. The food was tasty, full of flavour and very reasonably priced. The service was also very friendly. Be warned, if you are not into spicy... More

Tried a variety of dishes, all were delicious and nicely spiced. I've been to Banana Leaf across the road & would say they're comparable but the bonus is Onam accepts Tastecard. Only negative would be it was quite cold sitting by the window on a wet miserable day, but it won't put me off returning.

Have eaten here a couple times now and the food is excellent. The rice hoppers are the perfect accompaniment to all their curries and the chicken fry is the perfect spicy main.

Very tasty authentic Keralan cuisine. Good selection of vegetarian dishes, and amazingly good value. Tooting has a lot of choice, but this is probably our favourite!

Went to this place and they had onam sadya (a kerala festival celebration). It cost £14 for the meal which is all vegetarian and the custom is if you finish any dishes, it's topped up. However we had to keep asking and were given seconds begrudgingly and very little at that, they were not generous the first time either. It's... More

Thank you for your feedback xx.While to appreciate and look forward to feedback from our valued customers, we would just like to state that the 3 day Onam festival event is one of our busiest times of the year as each of the 18 dishes of the meal have to be individually served for each customer and customers can ask...

I'd highly recommend Onam. Food was delicious. We particularly loved the prawn poori, dosa and coconut paratha. Friendly staff. Very reasonably priced drink and great value for money. With the taste card the bill was unbelievably cheap for a lot of super food. I'll certainly return!

I've eaten here twice, with different people. I think it's great. The service is really good, the guy knows his menu and is happy to chat about it and make recommendations. The last visit we ordered the prawn poori 3 times. It's delicious. Inexpensive,great food. Go and enjoy it.

Thank GavinTooting
