We turned up by chance on a Saturday evening and had a splendid meal. Food is from Kerala in South India and is much lighter than traditional. Interesting vegetarian food including starters. Masala Dosa for main course and Rose Kulfi. I think that this is the best Indian meal I have ever eaten. The restaurant was quiet and the owner and chef both took the time to talk to us and explain the food. The pickles and kulfi are both home made which is pleasant and unusual

Very high quality South Indian food. We are going to try the vegetarian options next time. Main courses come with rice – don't order extra unless you are extremely hungry!

Excellent and inexpensive Southern Indian food, Dosas, Apams and Keralan dishes both vegetarian and meat based. Delicious and unusual chutneys freshly made, the best samosas I've had in a very long time! I have made several visits and each time find something new and equally outstanding to try. Highly recommended!
