I went here with some friends on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. The service was very friendly and our waitress was happy to take some time to help us choose from the menu. The food arrived quickly and was very reasonably priced. It was, in all honesty, absolutely delicious. The portion sizes weren't massive but with the starters it... More

Pure, authentic South Indian cuisine, which parallels exactly what you would be served in India. That many of the punters are Indian/ Sri Lankan themselves, tells you all you need to know. The a la carte vegetarian dishes, like the idli, sambar and uttapam come highly recommended, and are heads and shoulders above your typical High Street curries.

It was moderate one to dine here. We have been there couple of times. Staff are okay. Not so good in service. Can't expect much from them

Yesterday, Monday at 1:45pm, an Indian friend treated me to a delicious spread of delicately spiced food at this cheap and cheerful restaurant. With only four other occupied tables, the friendly waitress looked after us as expected. I'd eaten food never before tried and relished every sensation experienced with my eyes, nose, hand and mouth. I'll definitely be back.

Took a while to take our order and then serve our drinks. Tried ordering at least a couple of starter dishes on the menu but was simply told they can't make them. Ordered Paneer 65 instead and was really dissapointed. No taste and definitely not what Paneer 65 is. Ordered Special Masala Dosa for main and they forgot to add... More
