If you're looking for 5 star Thattukada 259-09 Hillside Ave, Bellerose, Queens, 718-343-4867, the wonderful Keralan restaurant hidden in the back of a candy store, please note that they've just moved to a real restaurant a couple miles away in New Hyde Park: 5 Star Indian Cuisine 247 Jericho Tpk, New Hyde Park (516) 502-2777

Kerala Kitchen is the most inconsistent restaurant I currently know, so I don't know how to answer that.
When those guys moved out of the candy store, the 5 Star guys moved in. They, too, are inconsistent, but generally quite good. They excel in special orders like crab curry. The candy store is now deserted (the cranky proprietor seems happy about that), and I have not yet tried the 5 star guys' new place.
I finally had a meal there, and I'm not sure it's the same people. Food was fine, not great.
I'd really like to find the great young woman chef who used to work in back of the candy store....
