Entering into this restaurant means to enter into the Southern Indian culture and typical cuisine. In front of the tables a stage hosts a drummer and a typical indian-guitar player, who accompain every dish and give particular atmosphere. I recommend the gourmet, the cheddar cheeee appetizer and the main veg dish based onto beans and tomatoes.

I was there for dinner on 12/7/2015 and right from the time we entered the restaurant we were treated like royalty. the live music and the ambience was great. The food with the emphasis on South Indian cuisine was exceptional. The Chef came around to check about the food which was a nice gesture. Overall an excellent experience.

One of the worst experience with this restaurant. Requested twice to staff to serve food with NO chilly or high spices. Food served was having red and on top green chilly- pic attached. They have a huge task to fix internal communication. They speak polite but following customer requests is not their strength. Very bad experience.

Last evening we went there for their flavours of India festival.The starter Veg kebab was succulent and tasty I orderd Aappam with Palakkad Veg Stew.The stew was a bit of a disappointment. The traditional Palakkad stew containe Broccoli etc.They could have limited to the traditional veg.Tha Adai Pradhaman was excellent The ambience and service were great

This Indian cuisine restaurant has good ambiance, good service. Went for lunch, totally empty. So expected good food as Chef can prepare well. But the food ordered taste was not satisfactory, not authentic taste of Madras curry. May be the sous-chef prepared it!
