A fairly small menu but the food was excellent and gave you some amazing insight into South Indian cuisine. Definitely one to try if you like spices and something a bit special.

Not having eaten there for a while, a friend and I decided to pay another visit over the Bank Holiday weekend and it was quite busy, but despite not having made a reservation we were still accommodated and the staff were friendly and welcoming. On...the whole we enjoyed our meal but there were a few minus points: We requested a jug of water but had to ask for it three times before it came. We decided to share a portion of bel puri for starters as we remembered the portion sizes were always quite generous, and while it was tasty and nicely spiced, there was so much puffed rice on top that it resembled a bowl of Rice Krispies. It would have been better with more of the potatoes etc. For mains we both ordered biryanis - chicken for my friend and lamb for me. They took long time to come, but when they finally arrived they were nicely presented in a plantain leaf-lined bowl and accompanied by three chutney/sauces and a crisp poppadum. Although my lamb was rather chewy (and I even had difficulty getting a knife through it), it was all very tasty and my friend said her chicken was quite tender. After that we were too full for desserts but in fact we weren't asked whether we would like any, which was perhaps a slight omission. The prices are extremely reasonable and despite the above niggles, I would definitely go again.More

What the what???? Terrible surroundings. Nothing like the pictures on the website or Tripadvisor. Service?…. I am amazed by the ratings here. Surely a scam? Don’t do it guys.

The food was delicious - some of the nicest Indian food we've eaten. We had the meat and vegetarian thali, both a range of delicious flavours and plenty of food. The service was great - friendly and efficient. A good atmosphere in the restaurant -...several families and couples. Definitely recommend and would return..More

Excellent authentic Southern Indian food with lots of new dishes to try. We love the dosas which are enormous and feed 2 easily. Spicing is perfect and look forward to tasting a thali on next visit. Thank you all for a wonderful evening.

What can I say? Well, if you’re expecting the usual run of the mill Indian menu, then this isn’t for you. However, the staff are amazing, the food is SO authentic and cooked completely differently. The lunch offering is off the chart. £6?? Wow. Just...go. I’d pay double for this food.More

This restaurant has an amazing offer for a takeaway lunch box. On the menu is curry, dhall, yogurt dip, rice and roti or chapati. It's a small portion of each item, but the box itself seems generous. I was afraid it woudl be stone cold...by the time I made my way back to the car in 2 degree temperatures and drove home, but in fact was still warm when I got there. The lamb was tender and nice. The spices used in the dishes were unusual and tasty. For a sampler of what this restaurant has to offer I'd recommend trying one of these lunch boxes. On weekdays you can also get a Curry box with a full portion of curry, or a Thali box that includes several different chutneys/dips in addition to a curry and rice. I went in person because because of the big cut that places like Uber Eats take from restaurants like this. If everyone uses these services, then the restaurants are going to have to compensate somehow. I much prefer to go in person where I can assess the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the premises, etc.More

The restaurant is on the high street So there's no parking directly outside but there are various back roads near the restaurant have plenty of spaces and there's a car park about 7 mins walk away
