“Fun place, great food, easy going place”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Staying at hotel du vin and looking for Indian food in a city covered in Indian restaurants. Pipasha was recommended by our cab driver from the station and by trip advisor. Taxi from town was around seven pounds and around five minutes. At first we were amused at the quaint looking restaurant which seemed to be a converted tea room or a pub, but once at our table (we'd booked and it was full) we ordered two popadoms and got given three, the lassi was exquisite although we'd like it even spicier and the main courses were phenomenal. The restaurant is billed as bangladeshi / Indian and you might expect broad brushstroke vanilla food but they also had dishes typical of khyber and goa. The dishes were quite large - we couldn't finish them - the naam was light and the saagaloo was the best thing we ate. The bill for two including beer came to £40 and the service was informative, friendly and unobtrusive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other Londoners coming to Cambridge. Incidentally, Cambridge people coming to London, please check out roti chai in marble arch!!

“Divine indian food”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Our daughter introduced us to this restaurant and it has rapidly become a firm favourite. Interesting menu - the aromatic lamb shank is out of this world. Lovely friendly service. Can't think how it could be improved.

I've been again as it never fails to please me, in fact I am going again by the end of the week it is that good!!
Several family members, from 80+ to less than 2 and there were happy faces all round.
If you have never been and like Indian food just try it as I'm sure you won't regret it!!

Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our food. Regarding the service, we are sorry that you had felt like the staff were making you feel uncomfortable. As the restaurant is relatively small, it wasn't the staff's intention to 'stare' at your table, they were just trying to do their job. Please come again.
