The staff are mainly from Sri-Lanka, but the head chef (charming and hygienic) is from Tamil-Nadu region of India. Apparently he has worked there for 7 years, having previously worked for 5 ***** hotels. They offer a range of South Indian dishes, including Chicken 65, Dragon Chicken and Mongolian Chicken. Their Chettinad curry I can confirm contains those rarest of spices: Marathi Moggu and Kalpasi (only featured in a handful of Youtube videos and no english-language books), so is one of only a couple of restaurants in the whole country offering truly authentic Tamil-based cuisine. The staff are all very friendly. Recommended dishes: Devil's lamb, Dragon/Mongolian chicken, Chettinad curry, Kadai Murgh / Ghosht among others. All poor reviews I've seen are totally unjustified--obviously written by people who know nothing about Indian cuisine. I've been to this restaurant several times now and never had a poor dish--only the best food.
