We were celebrating a 60th birthday. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I recommend the dosas, which are an exciting spectacle when they arrive and the mixed seafood curry.

Can not recommend highly enough. By far the best Indian meal you’ll ever have. The menu is not you typical Indian fare, the staff are welcoming and friendly and make excellent recommendations.

Been to many places but for authentic South Indian dishes would recommend kayak. Soft uppam. Coconut king fish curry . Delicious lamb. Good for some authentic Indian food but pricy so for the special occasion.
