Very nice food here. Will really miss this place when I move to Nottingham. Visit this restaurant far more than any other and that should say it all.

Food on the buffet was labelled as vegan suitable as appropriate, which comes with masala dosa. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable and friendly, they even have vegan ice cream. Alcohol is available, food is really good value.

We've visited this restaurant as well as had takeaway, and the food has been excellent every time. On busy weekends it is quite full and might take some time to be served but the food is hot and yummy when it does reach you eventually :)

The south indian cuising is fantastic and there is a very large menu. Many of the dishes are rice/semolina/lentil based. The food is simply stunning. Very fresh, and very tasty.
