Had a recent meal with friends and the food was excellent good choice on the menu for all diets good atmosphere friendly and hard working staff all in all a great night out. Book early as very popular I would mention that there appears to be very little parking in the area might be worth checking out.

This Indian restaurant really is one of the most consistent curry houses in terms of food and service, we dropped for a late business lunch and ordered the "Business Lunch", this consisted of 2 pickles, 1 soup and 3 curries, lovely fluffy rice and a Dosa. Each of the curries had a different flavour which I must say was excellent.... More

Visited many a time over the years with family and friends. Recommend to anyone, one of my favourite places to get a curry in Leicester - offers something different to a typical menu.

One of the best Indian restaurants I have been to. Unusual dishes. My fish curry had a wonderful depth of flavour and my partner's chicken curry was cooked exactly to his specifications. The appams, lacy rice pancakes were a delicious discovery. The waiter was pleased to answer our questions about Kerala and how the dishes were cooked. Thank you for... More

0ne of the best curry restaurants I've ever been to ( and I've visited many due to living in the Curry Capital, Birmingham ) I had the most delicious vegetarian dish with excellent friendly service. The place was very clean and tidy and would highly recommend this place. Would love them to open one in Birmingham.

This place is really nice but you won't recognise much on the menu first time round. I chose the duck curry dish which I must say was phenomenal. Overall a very pleasant experience.

The food here is incredible. And I genuinely can't emphasise that enough. Unfortunately the service was severely lacking. After having to ask for our own menus, ask to order both food and drinks, after 50 minutes we finally gave in and had to ask for some jugs of water for the table whilst we waited. Understandable during weekends but this... More
