Good food and great to have a variety of dishes that were different to many on offer in a traditional Indian restaurant. The names of the dishes were largely unknown but the descriptions provided and helpful advice meant that we were able to select individual dishes to our own tastes. Reasonable price at around £30 per person including two drinks... More

I had my favourite, mossala dosa and it was very good. Others in the party had chefs lamb curry and rice and liked it. My only dissappointment there was no Almond Kulfi. I will definitely return. Thanks

I would recommend anyone to come here. Instead of reading the menu just ask Jerry to advise on the food. His recommendation was fantastic, service excellent and overall a really great experience.

Really tasty food in a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and helpful in recommending dishes or warning us if it was going to be spicy! And when they found out it was my birthday, they brought a surprise pudding out and sang. Great hospitality with smiles esp Sajith, Toms and Sneha

The best fish curry mopped up with a couple of Appams. Delicious. Jerry was the perfect host - wonderful service. The Nair Dosa with chilli paneer fantastic too.

Had a family dinner here and there were eleven of us including kids. Our waiter Jerry coped admirably with the (usual) family chaos, service was great and the food even better. I've had plenty of Indian meals before but this was something entirely different and somewhere that you must try. The dosa are some of the best I've had. Will... More
