“really good food and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We first looked at this place because we were staying at wanderlust around the corner who recommended it. however we nearly skipped it because the doenstairs didnt look very enticing wirh yellow tiles on the walls. Once upstairs though the ambiance is completely different - you sit on little tables on the floor barefoot, and the waitrress comes to sit down with you to explain the menu and the chilli ratings. She was fab - her english was excellent and she understood what food we wanted and heklped us pick some delicious food with the right level of spicy.

I have seen some people complain that the portions are small, we found them perfect and a great example of quality over quantity! we happened to go on a quiet nightand the chef sat and chatted to us after dinner too. i wouldnt hesitate to recommend it

“Really Liked It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I liked a lot about the place. I like the staff, I liked the local of the place - very informal & above all else I loved the food. Perhaps the best Indian meal I have ever had. I must say I am no great fan of Indian food but this was good. If everybody else is saying lets go to an Indian place and your not 100% sure go here.

The kitchen is spotless - they have an A - rating very few of these smaller places have that in Little India - I like the way the cooks from the kitchen bought you the food instead of waiters - that very Michelin.

I think the place has a strong following - perhaps book & understand that this is not a fast food place so you do need to wait while they cook your food. If you only have 30 min its not the place for you.

“Hidden but very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

Very nice staff introducing you to the Indian cuisine and very good food, generally a good "insider tip" although TA turned it quite public of course. They could however work on the atmosphere, the walls are just plain white and everything looks a bit spartanic. Also portions are a too small, which comined had me rate it rather 4* than 5*

“Something different in Little India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We read about this place in tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. There is normal seating downstairs but it is much more atmospheric upstairs if you don't mind sitting cross legged on a cushion on the floor. The standout here is the service. The staff are all really genuinely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we wanted, including explaining the spicyness index (#2 is probably enough for Western tastes!) for the curries. The food is fine but not outstanding bearing in mind it is situated in the heart of Little India where there is a fair bit of competition for this genre of food. However as a dining experience we would recommend going to Lagnaa.
