The food is excellent! not your usual korma or tikka masala - in fact these dishes do not feature in this truly south indian restaurant. If you're ever in Leicester you should definitely try it out. However, the portions are quite small!!

If you fancy an Indian meal in Leicester you will be spoilt for choice, but after my first visit here it goes straight to the top of my list. Really interesting menu, friendly service and delicious food, beautifully presented. Can't wait to go back.

The food is wonderful. The Dosa was fab but so too was all the rest. We went at 8pm and the service a little slow to start with so ravenous by the time first course came. Was defo worth the wait! Can highly recommend - we originally booked for 3 but more joined us so were moved upstairs. On the phone they sounded apologetic to do so - maybe that accounted for the service? The staff were great though. Will return.

Not the best indian food I had, but you can have a nice dinner at this place.
Service is good.
Surely they could work a bit more on atmosphere.
