“Amazing”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

What an absolutely amazing experience, especially when trying a new cuisine. I was introduced to a wonderful kept secret, The DOSA - what an amazing experience, crispy, tasty, and an absolute taste explosion!

The owners and hostess were welcoming and a great wealth of traditional knowledge!

“True Indian Food”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We took a chance on this restaurant for our quarterly staff lunch as it is conveniently located near our office, and what a surprise.

The food was good, the staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was lovely. We selected to be seated outside as it was a lovely autumn afternoon.

One did not feel like the food was made outside of India. We had various orders with different requests for mild, not too hot and bring it on, and everybody was satisfied with their meal.

The unavailability of a well-known draft beer brand was a bit disappointing to some but all in all a good experience.

Afterwards the staff requested that we place this restaurant on our regular circuit of quarterly visits.

I can recommend this venue.

“Brilliant food and fantastic ambiance”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Not much to dislike, bathrooms could be a little cramped, but the rest of the place was quiet, comfy and staff were friendly. Food was amazing, would happily go back there.

“Enjoyable Food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have eaten here a few times. The prawns Kerela style are very good. We have enjoyed chicken and mutton dishes and the dahl. My wife enjoys the dosas. The restaurant has never been full. Service is attentive and professional. We will keep going back
