We enjoyed a delicious meal here. It’s not the most intimate atmosphere but it’s more than made up for by the food. Try the chefs special dosa - it’s amazing.

A previously read review of this restaurant mentioned the Southern Indian dosa so this was definitely going to be the main course. Excellent! Starters of mixed vegetable pakora and lentil doughnuts were really nice. Service to the table was very good.
