A different Indian

Very good food; not your typical Indian as it serves Kerala dishes; Would consider it the best indian place in Leamington

We booked a table for valentine's night and were extremly happy about the meal we had. We never expected such a wonderful meal from an indian restaurant. The salmon meal was amazing and could taste the keralan flavours. Hats off to the chef and the waitors to make that night more beautiful. I am hoad there is no other wonderful... More

I visited here whilst on a short trip to leamington. The waiter was very friendly and had good knowledge of the menu. It was good value for money. My only complaint was the bread they served wasn't particularly tasty but it was soon rectified when we were offered another option. Most likely to visit again

This is not an average indian restaurant. I thouroughly enjoyed this unusual cuisine which is worth and delicious. The atmosphere and the service have impressed us too. The friendliness and knowledge of the waiter is a worth to mention. He made recommendations of food to try and all were absolutely delicious. Highly highly recommended!

Beautiful juice but sadly not the reason I came. The food took over 2 hours no waiter gave us any information on why it was so late. To sum it up just go to the local supermarket.

Went for my husbands birthday in January for the first time based on excellent reviews. We had the set thali meal which was absolutely superb. Only criticism was that it was far too much and I felt awful for not eating it all. Will definitely be back soon

3 of us attended a couple of nights ago. Understaffed, it felt like the food was on fast forward. Cochin coffee was obviously filter coffee with generic tea masala thrown in and the rest followed suite..that is a generic base with minimal amount of spice and herbs to make it south Indian. As an Indian, unimpressed..especially for the price paid.

My son who lives in Leamington thinks this restaurant is wonderful and having had our first meal there, we wholeheartedly agree. A very wide selection of food with lots of vegetarian choices. Our masala dosas were very good - and very filling and the vegetable stew was delicious. Our waiter was concerned because he thought our uthappam - a type... More
