I have been buying the vegetarian somosas from here for years and they taste the same today as they did the first time I had them. True home style Indian cooking what I will say is judge this place by it's food not it's decor

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 all of, I'd recommend going in a small... 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!
