    Hi,

    I am also looking for the same from past 2-3 months..
    seems there are not many(not one) restaurants with authentic kerala cuisine.

    Malabar House Inc ( Fine Indian Cuisine)‎
    1626 U.S. 130, North Brunswick, NJ 08902

    From the name, this looks like kerala restaurant..
    I checked their menu online, but there are north indian, south indian and srilankan dishes.
    The only one kerala item is Alleppy fish curry.

    I think you can check out srilankan restaurants.
    Their dishes are very close to kerala ones.

    I visited malabar house recently thinking it to be a Kerala restaurant, but it was the usual buffet with Tamilnadu, Andhra and north Indian dishes.

    There is an Aroma palace in Montclair NJ, which has kerala foods too. But any restuarnt serving kerala food exclusive; I have not heard.
    Kavi; Malabar house is closer to our apt. There is a kerala grocery store "samudra" in the same strip. I have not ventured to both yet.

    Revathy (Ilte) was telling me that in Aroma Palace on (just) sundays they serve kerala food. From "kappa" to all the typical kerala dishes.
    Also there is a rest. in Long Island which serves kerala food; with malayalam movies running in background( a home theatre effect) :).
