Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely wonderful. Discussed my dietary restriction and made a delicious, flavorful dish to fit. Both our meals were worth savouring and the pappadoms fresh, hot, and amazing. We wished we were hungrier! Lovely decor, clean, and comfortable. Fantastic staff and a fabulous chef!

Clean, tastefully decorated, attentive and knowledgeable staff - and most important of all highly flavoured dishes. We went for mild-medium which was the right level of heat for our main dishes. One of the best Indian meals we've had. Recommended.

I have had dinner last week and lunch today at Pappadomz because it was so good. I live in the US now and travel a lot for work so when I wandered in and saw the photos of Kerala I knew I had to try...it. The food was fresh and delightful, with a great selection on the menu; the paratha perfect. They offer dosa something I dont see very often in an Indian restaurant. The staff were friendly, polite and not overbearing. The restaurant was spotless, the prices reasonable, and again I can't state how great the food was.More

We booked the restaurant for our wedding reception. We hosted around 35 people in the space and served them a buffet of an assortment of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The food, the beverages, the service, the ambiance, everything surpassed our expectations. Mr Anu, the manager...went above and beyond his duties and made the event a memorable one for everybody. Our guests loved Chicken 65. I personally loved the Kallappam and vada heaps. Thanks Pappadomz team for your amazing hospitality.More

Searching for a place to have a dinner, i got some welcoming smell from Pappadomz, not very busy place. But seated quickly and taken care in a very professional manner. The food is really out of the world. Duck masala is amazing and the kerala...parta too. 10/10 for food, service and ambience. Finally the smell of waffle cone making from Movenpick icecream forced me to have a tiramisu ice cream. THE BESTMore

Very nice. Very tidy venue, very friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere. We all enjoyed our meals. Not the tastiest Indian cuisine we have had but very close to it. And a full ice cream bar for you to try for desert. Thanks.

Good place to spend the day. First time having a masala dosa, really enjoyed. Small kids menu but children enjoyed the chicken lollipop and chicken bites and the cindrella 👌👌👌. Having Movenpick ice-cream and nice espresso in the cozy outside dining is absolute luxury.

Pappadomz catered our wedding in February 2023. The whole process of working with their team was fantastic. They worked with us to create a menu to our preferences. The food was not only delicious but the presentation was amazing too. The team managed to work...with all the dietary requirements we had in a way that all guests had plenty of options to choose from. Pappadomz had a live food station for the evening which all our guests raved about. We are so happy that they catered our wedding. We highly recommend them.More
