Just go. Yes, the service can sometimes be a bit iffy - if it's busy, ask the waiter how quickly the food is being served - if they're struggling, stick to a Dosa. It'll be fresh, in front of you in minutes and totally delicious.

The curries are fantastic as well. Try sharing a Biriani and a paneer (Indian cheese) curry with a friend. Add a naan and you'll be in heaven!

Go with an open mind and try something different. Trust me - it's very addictive!

Just eaten here and honestly would not go back. Food was good but the restaurant was freezing and everyone sat with their coats on! With only 6 tables to cater for it took 50 mins for the food to arrive; had to send the plates back twice to be warmed. Bottled beer expensive at up to £7.95 a bottle! There are better restaurants in the same street that are much warmer!

A very different restaurant with authentic, carefully prepared dishes fromSri Lanka. Some can be a little spicy, but the flavours are wonderful. The restaurant gets quite busy at times so booking might be a good idea.

It seems we were unlucky when we ate here. We didn't get any food for over an hour. A party of 8 came in after us, had their food, finished, paid the bill and left. There are only 2 of us, we ordered 3 main courses and a naan so couldn't understand the delay. When the food eventually came it was good, but by then we were past it. Shame it has put us off trying again.

I have been here about ten times since it opened,
There is simply nowhere else quite like it in the Bournemouth area.
The food has remained consistant and tasty every visit,
Offering Items not seen in any of the other Indian type restaurants around,
Try the signature dishes and you will see what I mean.
The Dosas alone is worth the visit.
The décor is very plain,but service and quality of food is high.
