Unbeatable samosas

From the outside this looks nothing like a restaurant and it doesn't look much more like one inside. However with the limited tables this place offers some of the most flavoursome and fairly priced vegetarian food I've had. The menu has many reasonable options that in all honesty I wanted to try... read more

I work in the area and took a fancy to a bar of chocolate. So i decided to go to the nearest corner shop which happened to be Madhav. However I was appalled to find that the shop had no chocolate bars. Also a colleague of mine purchased a packet of crisps with a foreign price on the packaging and... More

Visited here with my mum...We gad the thali special and potato balls. The thali was beautiful. It had a veg curry, dal, 2 chapattis, rice, 2 different types of vegetables in spiced sauces, a potato fitter, chutney and a jalebi! ! For £6.99 it was an absolute feast. The flavours were sensational, each dish was different and very well cooked.... More

If you've never tasted one of Mrs Madhav's kachoris, samosas or aloo vadas, you haven't lived, that's all I can say.

One of the hidden gems of Cardiff. Authentic and delicious vegetarian food at very low cost. Fabulous range of snacks and sweets and a limited range of hot meals. Sit in or take away. Do yourself a favour and try!

Small eatery (& Indian grocer shop - connected from within too) run by a lady who warmly welcomes you with tasty simple food which reminds one of great street food from Mumbai (Bombay) and its province of Maharashtra. Good sumptuous portions, well priced but a bit slow in churning out (do keep some time for this place - it's definitely... More

This place is well worth a visit. We dont usually eat just vegetarian but if you are a meat eater you can make an exception here. We all had 'the special' at lunch time and it was very tasty and well presented. The shop is also very interesting and we came away with quiet a few items that you won't... More
