I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant specialising in Keralite cuisine. I've been a couple of times to Kerala and always wanted to eat Appams again. Its a kind of Crêpe (dosa) in the shape of a Wok and sweeter than a Dosa. The...More

Food was so so. Decor and ambience of the restaurant left a lot to be desired. Staff need training with people skills or get some decent waitresses. Felt we were an inconvenience, Had to ask for the bill 3 times only to find we had...More

Me and my partner ordered a take away from this restaurant. The food arrived within a hour which isn't too bad, however they clearly didn't unfreeze our food before sending it off to us. The food was cold with some frozen parts, the narn bread...More

With sticky menus to make this meal choice this doesn't bode well, and a guy going around in a hoody setting the tables didn't help either. But it was late and we didn't fancy trudging around s-o-s any more. Plus they accommodated us as a...More

This is not a chicken tikka masala type of Indian restaurant. Very fresh South Indian cooking ,non greasy no additives or unnecessary colourings . King prawn purée as you've never had before is a must try, so is the king fish curry. Will return many...More
