I have eaten hear several times over a five year period, so it is time that I left some feed back. The draw of the resturant is not all about the excellent South Indian food,the staff are very friendly and helpful with one aim to ensure that you have a great experience. Every one I have ever taken their wether... More

I've been here a few times now and the food is always great. My favourite is the prawn curry with appam bread. There are a lot of nice Indian restaurants to choose from in Nottingham such as Calcutta club and 4550 miles from Delhi to name but a few. After work I sometimes grab a bite to eat alone and...

We went here as a group of friends on a busy Saturday evening. We had a relaxed and enjoyable meal. The restaurant was bustling, but we were made welcome and not rushed at any time. The food is quiet different from other Indian restaurants in the city. With an smphasis on fresh fish and styles of bread and rice we... More

If you like a creamy fish curry, this is awesome. Other dishes I'm sure are fantastic too, things going by looked and smelled fabulous. Was only there for one night, so can't vouch for the rest of the menu but our party of five was very happy.

As the title suggests the food is lovely. The fish curries options are vast and cover a broad range and for those into fish there are good chicken and lamb options. Sadly the experience is massively let down by the service. Waiting 40min between course is 5mins short of a half in football!!! Additionally have the clumsy waiters drop sauces... More

Thank you for the feedback. Its unfortunate that you did not enjoy your visit with us. We have a highly motivated staff. This was a one off experience where service was slow as we had some issue with the tills which slowed down the order processing and in turn service. As per our investigation delay was for 20 min.

My friend and I frequently visit this restaurant. Their meat Tali is a great way of tasting what they produce...if a rather large meal. Good service (I hesitate saying "great" due to the frequent changes of staff noted of late).

Food was awesome, and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. My boyfriend had the fish curry and I had chicken with black pepper (can't remember what either were called), both excellent and recommended by our lovely waiter Tom Joseph. We were in a bit of a rush to get to the cinema but Tom made sure of speedy service. Thanks... More

Went here for a pre-show dinner and we really enjoyed our meal. We had nice little table upstairs overlooking the street. We started with the Masala Dosa which was fabulous - we'd never had it before and it's so good - definitely be having that again. For mains we had the Kayal Fish Curry and the Nadan Curry - both...
