Description: Sentur has traced traditional recipes from the coconut-lined coast of Malabar to the spice laden ports of Madras and Jaffna, jazzed in a bit of Manchuria and Szechuan for that oriental-bling-finish, gathered an army of trained chefs; and the result? Santhi’s of course. Sentur grew up eating authentic, traditional cuisine both at home and at Tangoe. Now he wants to share this with you. With the resounding clangs of knives and plates at Tangoe, its success and the experience of twenty years in producing truly authentic dishes from South India and Sri Lanka, Sentur, the young heir of the Surendran clan, brings you Santhi’s.

I visited this restaurant recently and ordered the following;
Paneer Butter Masala
Paneer Tikka Masala
Noodles
Butter Naan.

The food was served very quickly and tasted great! All dishes were seasoned perfectly and well presented. The service was superb and I would definitely visit this restaurant again. The restaurant is very clean and tidy! The staff are great!

Santhi is a lovely restaurant serving South Indian and Indo/chinese fusion cuisine . I particularly enjoyed the Hot and Sour soup. My friend had the Dosa which had been reccomended in turn by two diners leaving the restaurant as we arrived .

Service was fast and efficient, and the waiters were knowledgable about the food and happy to make suggestions

The prices were very reasonable with a meal for two including drinks coming in at £32.

Cleanliness was excellent however when we visited there was an aroma of some scented cleaning product which was a bit off putting. I would certainly reccomend this restaurant with no hesitation

Popped in here on a Saturday night for a meal and was pleased that we did.

Although the welcome was nonexistent as no staff were there to greet us, the subsequent service was very good. Dishes recommended to us, ingredients explained and food served with passion. However, one of our dishes was incorrect, but after an apology the dish was not included on the final bill which was very kind.

Prices are very reasonable, food very tasty and service very good.

The only real downside to this place is the decor in the restaurant. It has an office type ceiling, poor lighting and does not feel like a restaurant at all inside. Some traditional Indian background music might also go a long way... it creates a nice atmosphere.

This aside, I would recommend this restaurant for all to try - I think you might just like it!

I went down with a friend just for lunch but thoroughly enjoyed it. Very convenient location right at the top of Granby Street just around the corner from the station. Nicely decorated, lovely atmosphere, nice/ friendly service and above all fantastic decently priced food. I had the dum lamb briyani and looked pretty unique but tasted pretty incredible! My friend had a masala dosai was huge apparently tasted fab too. They also have a range of exciting drinks and deserts as well as lots of range on the main meals and starters on the menu and well worth a visit. Enjoy!
