Just got back from our anniversary meal at Manjus! The food was just yum!! Lovely staff lovely ambiance, we said it was our anniversary and they gave us a carrot cake pudding, you must try it and will not be disappointed. The owner was telling us the recipes have come from his mum and grandmother. Thank Manjus!!

This is Indian home cooking done with the utmost care. It’s a small restaurant (for now) and a small menu (around 10 main choices) that changes when Manju “gets bored of cooking the dish”.

The delight here is trying a selection of different dishes and side dishes. The seemingly simple items, like an onion bhaji, are made with multiple spices and the flavors subtly present if you slow down and savor the food. Again, the chutneys that came with the papadums were fantastic.

It’s also a nicely presented restaurant with trinkets, trays and tiffins on the walls, all with stories that the staff are happy to tell.

Dear Zola025,

Thank you for writing such a lovely review!
It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and we are so pleased you all had a great time with us.
Manju's has always been about home cooked Gujarati food and hospitality, if you came to mum's home ( Manju), this is what we would serve and host.

We hope to see you again soon.

Thank you!

Regards
Manju's,

Visited this lovely family owned restaurant this evening. After realising it was vegetarian I wasn’t sure how my boyfriend would find it. We were blown away with not only the food which was absolutely delicious with an explosion of flavours in every mouthful. But also the service from all the staff so warm and welcoming. We loved our experience here! We including our 9 month old little boy will definitely be back!

Dear Alice,

Thank you so much for writing such lovely review!
It was such a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family, your little son is gorgeous! He certainly stole the show and is adorable.
We are so pleased that you and your boyfriend enjoyed your meal time with us. I know your boyfriend was a bit unsure as we are a vegetarian restaurant, but it's so nice that he loved his meal.
We really hope to see you again soon.
Thank you!

Unbeknownst to us until we arrived this is a vegetarian Indian restaurant and is WELL worth a visit even for a meat eater. The owner and staff were excellent and in the kitchen is his 81 year old mother. The food was different to your usual Indian offerings and each of our meals were superb, full of flavour and very enjoyable.

Embrace your inner veggie and get there.

Been meaning to visit this place for such a long time and so glad it didn't disappoint. I was drawn in by the stylish decor and intimate dining atmosphere. It's a family run business with the matriarch of the family doing the cooking. We found lots of help in choosing what to order (because it all sounds so good) and at all times the owners/staff were lovely and friendly. The food itself was delicious, really good and authentic. Would really recommend Manjus for a down to earth yet stylish and tasty dining experience.

Dear NadieK1187,

Thank you so much for the wonderful review.
I have read your review to mum (Manju) and she is so pleased ( as we all are) that you enjoyed yourselves with us.
Mum works so hard and at the age of 81, she is living her dream of running a restaurant. Your lovely words give us all encouragement so thank you.
We hope to see you again soon.

Regards
Manju's
