We enjoyed the meat taster menu and it was amazing. Every course was served with a flourish and the presentation was incredible - a treat and feast for the eyes and stomach. Great for something a bit different. I did feel that the restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere though but I'd still recommend and go back.

I visited this restaurant a number of years ago now and was quite unimpressed but after reading so many good reviews since I was looking forward to going there last Wednesday to see how much it had changed. However it pains me to say this, given that I rarely write a bad review on here, but I was left so... More

Me and my family booked a table for 22:00pm for my sisters 21st birthday meal, we booked quite short notice only an hour in advance and they were easily able to accommodate us.

Stumbled on this place one Tuesday evening fancying a curry whilst staying in the Bay Area. Having not done any research before going, I got a bit of a surprise on inspecting the menu (none of the usuals there - don't go here wanting for a madras or one of the other usuals) - a very different selection of dishes....

I don't usually choose to eat Indian food, but it was my husband's turn to choose our date spot - he's grown up with tasty homecooked indian food so expectations were high from both of us. Verdict : this is a jewel of Cardiff. It's a bit exxy so this was definitely a treat for us, but it was easily... More

I love the menu here - not your normal Indian food, but something a little different. Great balances of flavours and very fresh food but don't expect to find your Jalfrezi or Dhansak. If you 're prepared to be little more adventurous you won't be disappointed. We came as a large group of 25 people and it took a while... More
