So salty as to be inedible. Little sauce and salty rice. Shan't go there again. Chicken dry and overcooked

Had heard rave reviews and had a takeaway one evening and was not impressed at all. Will try again as the people who run it are charming.

Probably the worst restaurant experience i have ever had. I have a nut allergy and made this clear to the waiter AND THE CHEF who assured me before ordering that she could cater for me despite my allergy. The main course came out and the rice was riddled with cashew nuts!! I told the waiter that this could have killed... More

The staff here are absolutely brilliant, the menu had enough choice without being a list of every possible variation on curries (less choice for me is always better) our young boy was struggling with the spice in his food, the waiter noticed this and without having to ask came across and asked him if he would like the dish to...

Super tasty. We had a thali each and they were gorgeous. One of the best places I have been to. Not too expensive either! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Will definitely visit again

Greeted by Dharma the owner/chef the restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is southern Indian/Sri Lankan and is served with generous portions. I didn't have a starter and went straight into the Sri Lankan lamb curry accompanied by pilau rice, chapati and a roti. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The pilau rice was served with cashew nuts and raisins, and... More

I always enjoy eating here & tonight was no exception- great flavour - they will cook to your spice taste. I just ask for a spicy chicken main course & it always comes with perfect flavour & spice - also lovely & fresh; you can taste all the different spices - yum!! Definitely worth a visit - the service is... More

This restaurant does not look very promising when you first walk in, and looking at the menu will show several of the normal Indian restaurant favourites missing, as this is a southern Indian / Sri Lanka restaurant, however what we had was very good, and there was lots of it, so think carefully if you want a starter, as it...

Was really disappointed with this meal as we had heard such good reviews. Party of 4 all eating different items from menu and all were very salty. Mine especially was saturated in salt to the extent that I could not eat it. I had tandori chicken with salad. The salad was drowned in some kind of salad cream which I... More
