“Lacking in basics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012 via mobile

Had an interesting evening, decor and layout of restaurant was dreadful, carpet missing from stairs, an LCD tv in the restaurant made the place feel cheap, menus missing from all tables and when arrived had to ask for menus which is a first. Food was not bad at all especially if ur a fan of chillis, tho I felt better if u were a vegetarian, the cuts of chicken didn't match restaurant quality. The menus themselves looked like what you would get from a cheap Greek cafe, all in all not a bad place but not great and service was slow I think one bar man and one chef didn't help, staff were welcoming and polite but I think theBy arnt really ready for guests yet need to sort out interior and make it feel more authentic and get some more staff.

“South Indian and Sri lankan Food - a wonderful treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

This is the fourth time we have visited this restaurant since it opened and the meals we have been served have been wonderful without exception.
The menu differs from the normal 'Indian Cuisine' that we all know and love and we have to ask the staff for their assistance in selecting and describing the dishes - but that adds to the experience and the staff are friendly and very helpful.
The restaurant is still building a loyal customer base - but many Sri Lankan families eat there so that is a good recommendation as to its authenticity.
The prices are very reasonable and the quality is brilliant - the premises are licensed and you must try the Sri Lankan Lion Stout - powerful stuff!!
