We went on Saturday evening as my son had bought us a Groupon voucher as a Xmas present. Usually portion sizes can be smaller on Groupon but we had 3 starters , 2 curries, a very large rice and roti prata. It was all excellent and we will be returning.

The service is perhaps a little sparse, but nonetheless good. So don't go with the mindset of having a quick meal, relax into it and enjoy the food. And the food is very good! Only tried a few things so far, none of it was disappointing and we will be returning to eat our way though most of the menu.

had a great meal on a groupon voucher although the prices were very reasonable anyway. The chef took time out to explain the menu and how they cooked different dishes and suggested different dishes to suit our tastes. Altogether a very pleasant evening. Well worth a visit.

We ate at this restaurant on Valentine's Day. From the welcome to a free lassi after the meal the group on voucher provided us with an excellent meal and service. Our three starters, particularly the chicken 65, were very tasty and well spiced. The main chicken dishes were wonderful. It was our first experience of South Indian food and we'll... More

This small restaurant is obviously very popular as it was busy all evening. The menu is small, which is fine as we had more than enough choice. We had a vegetable sharing platter to start and that was delicious. Our curries all did look alike, as another reviewer noted, but they were lovely too. Our problem with this restaurant was... More

Had a really delicious meal here this evening. The food was amazing, very fresh and tasty. We enjoyed dosas (be prepared they are huge!), kerala curry and mutton madras. The staff were very friendly and helpful when asked for advice. We will definitely come back.

Excellent food - and a great place for vegetarian and vegan options as well as fish and meat dishes. I love the tomato chutney, the dosa, and especially the aubergine dish Ennai Kathirikai. You can tell everything is prepared from scratch using good quality ingredients.

I'm South Asian so it is unfair so judge the food by the standards at home. I had the Mutton Kottu and found it average. (But it is probably of great taste to someone who's not had it before or haven't eaten it in South Asia.)The Veg Kottu my husband had was a bit better. At the beginning when the... More
