Went to this quaint South Indian style cafe/restaurant with some Asian friends for lunch. We got there at around 1:30 pm and every single one of the tables was occupied with 3 or 4 people busily tucking in to the great food on offer (now does that sound like a terrible restaurant?).
It took around 10 minutes for a table to become free but we were soon sat down, reading the menu and my friends duly ordered for us. The technique we used was to order one or two dishes first, which were very promptly delivered and then order other dishes once the initial ones had been almost finished. It was a bit of a "tapas" style experience with all of us sharing what was brought out from the nearby kitchens. The food was simply superb - the dosas were delicious and everything we tried was first rate (nothing was ever too spicy and the hottest dipping sauce they had was only mild-medium). The options on the menu were vast - I think I counted over 20 styles of dosas. Sadly, we ate too much and had no room for the numerous deserts they also had on offer! Overall the food was light, non-greasy and exceedingly tasty! When we left at around 3pm the restaurant was still full!
What amazed me as a regular visitor of "British" Indian restaurants was that there was nothing on the menu that really I had ever seen before. I could not even tell you what we ordered and my biggest mistake was not taking pictures of what was brought out just to show you how wonderful the dishes looked.
There is also a ground floor dining area I believe but this was closed on the day.
If you are happy to put up with a busy, simple, cafe style dining experience with excellent South Indian food then this place is definitely worth a try. Cue terminator: "I'll be back..."
