South Indian (kerala) cuisine restaurant - Different experience.

Been to this restaurant while on a visit to my relatives while in UK. The hotel is situated ideally near to the river side which is basically sort of tourist /visitors area. Ambiance is good and furnishings are OK. These restaurant serves food that are not normally found in all Indian... read more

This was a disappointing experience. We ordered the 'feast' because the menu had such an interesting variety of food and we wanted to try new things, yet what we got were a few large portions of standard fare. We felt short changed at the time - and even more so when we found out that the same meal costs nine... More

We had the feast which presented a real variety which was ideal as there was so much on the menu that was new. Truly authentic Kerralan cuisine. The dosa was delicious. The chicken curry to die for. Nothing was too much trouble. They gave us extra dishes because we were curious. Drinks were pricey but overall value for money spot... More

Chose this restaurant because it was relatively close to where we were staying and my colleague is a vegetarian. The menu offered different choices to most Indian restaurants and has something for all tastes. It was relatively quiet on the Tuesday evening we visited, arriving about 7.30pm. For this reason service was prompt and friendly, but it did mean atmosphere... More

Staying on Quayside we were intending to walk up into town to find a place to eat. We ducked behind the hotel to find this gem of an eatery and made the best decision to give it a try. Attentive and helpful staff coupled with a different and interesting menu (from Kerala) made for a lovely evening. Thoroughly enjoyed everything... More

Absolutely wonderful Keralan restaurant. The last dosa masala I had was in Kerala, so I was delighted to get the genuine article at this restaurant. I'm vegan and the staff were able to advise which meals were suitable for me (which were several). Also managed to accommodate 16 of us at extremely short notice. Good was served promptly and by...

I can't understand how I have missed this South Indian restaurant on previous business trips to Newcastle. Close to the historic riverside and station, also close to the new Tune Hotel where I stayed. Usually special menus (called Feasts here) are for two or more diners, here I was offered the opportunity to go for the Meat Feast while dining... More

You may pay a bit more at this restaurant but you get something a bit different. We went for two main courses of fish (Kappayum Meenum Vevichathu) and prawn (Chemmeen Masala) accompanied by the lemon rice and parathas. The plates were clean by the end as the food was exquisite. The De Gras white wine was a good accompaniment and... More

Apparently this is the only outpost out of London. Go. Food is lovely, service is friendly and attentive, and they appear to be one of the few places these days who understand that restaurant music should be in the BACKGROUND. Thank you! Thanks to that I also enjoyed a quiet relaxing dining experience.
