    Ordered the Coondapur Chicken for dinner from Kokum and it was excellent. Perfect blend of curry and spices without being too spicy or overpowering. Coondapur chicken is a curry stew with chicken and potatoes. It came with a side of white basmati rice but I enjoyed it better with a side of naan that I added. Everything tasted fresh and made to order. Fast and attentive service as the food was delivered in less than the 30 minutes quoted by Seamless. This was my first time having south indian food (based on a friend's recommendation) but I will definitely be back for more, a lot more. I highly recommend Kokum as the food was delicious and the delivery was super fast.
