We loved this meal because of the great flavours and friendly and caring staff. It was very authentic Indian food and would recommend to friends. :)

This places was absolutely lovely. We stopped in as we are veggie but would cater for all. We had a dosa which was huge and crisp and perfectly spiced!! The panner here is gold, really creamy, melts in your mouth! Two for one cobra and...20% student discount. The staff were polite and friendly, Covid safe, atmosphere was so cosy and comfortable. Please go and enjoy!!!!!More

We were excited to see a pure vegetarian restaurant in Southampton but it was not a good choice. Starters were small and tasteless. Dosa was soft and undercooked. Parathas were undercooked and we had to return it. Kofta was the only thing that was ok....Expensive for you got. Tried to charge for paratha. Service was below average. Really disappointing experience and would not recommend.More

We predicted that you would write vicious words filled with terminological inexactitudes. Firstly, our starter portions are more than adequately sized for our customers, who have repeatedly told us that they are very large and too filling. It is interesting that you still finished all...More

Walked in, no greetings, gave us our table, dirty tables. Had to use our OWN wipes to clean the table, plates and cutlery. The guy took our order, which was incomplete. When the food did not arrive the guy said we did not order it...and argued with me. Ordered 3 dosas, 2 came and we were told the chef couldn't get it right that's why it was late. 3rd one didn't come so the guy made up that we did not order it. We ordered chilli paneer, had one plate then ordered another but we asked for less Chillies. He rudely said to just order paneer manchurian instead. We were 4 adults and 2 children. One child went hungry as the Dosa never came. I am a diabetic and also didn't have a full meal as I was going to share the Dosa. Will never recommend this place to anyone I know. Hope no one has the experience we did.More

It's hilarious that you say that no-one came to greet you, when it is the policy for our mask-wearing staff to take your temperatures before we allow you to be seated. Perhaps you are overdue an eye test, as all our staff greet customers with...More

As soon as we entered the their was no greeting. Random broken old chairs and tables of different sizes were for us. Sanatiser was available in a.soap bottle Tables were sticky Food was bought out and dumped We all had dosa (10 Adults) We still...hadn't been served any drinks we had to ask for them I had Pes in my diet coke!!! Starters were bought out in a rush and the manchurian tatsed of sour ketchup The dosa was falling off the plates as they were too big and touching the sticky table Food was awful. Samber was bland - just watery with no taste The masala dosa tasted awful it was just mash inside no taste The allo pronta which I and specifically asked for no spice at all for a two and hour years old. There was red chilli in it!!!!!!! We left with sour mood and even on leaving we didn't get a good bye. Not sure why other people have rated excellent but belive its a false representation!!! Never going back!!!More

Been here with my family and we just ordered Tomato soup to start with. It is one of the best soup that we had in a while. However it is not true with the Main food. Taste is just average and quantity/portion of curry is...less. Overall service is good & food, was freshly cooked.More

I have been here many times now and never been disapointed. Now I tried the Thali with pulao rice and plain dosa. Everything was tasty and I got satiesfied again. Thank you Sri Ram for the interesting conversation too. Highly recommended place!

Great food and a enlightened alternative to the chain restaurants in west quay round the corner. slightly confusing menu but ask the lovely hostess and she'll sort you out with a recommendation. You won't miss the meat.

A completely delicious and truly memorable experience. We received a warm welcome into a fascinating setting, along with an informative and interesting history about the style, and origin of the dishes. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was just as we expected - delicious....We are very much looking forward to our next visit. Thanks!More
