Didn't realise this place was vegetarian when i walked in. However, i was totally surprised at how good it was. Special thali was a bargain at about £12, big starter (chili paneer was a bit artificial for me), followed by a platter of 5 curries, all different but very tasty. Small desert to finish, couldn't fit much more in!

very very nice, seemed freshly prepared, service was good, overall good atmosphere will be back. Only problem was the parking but the food made it worth it, maybe a good idea to take a taxi

I visited this restaurant with a very old friend who lives in Leicester. Im not a vegetarian but I like most types of food and I am not at all knowledgeable about south Indian cooking. As a result we both chose a set meal that was a starter and then a selection of small curries with Rice and Poori bread.... More

I had a strange meal - Dahl bhattata vada, Brel poori, bean paula and shrikand. All good. Incredibly good value. This is a good place. I think a nudge better than kayal.

We went here for the first time- it's walking distance from the shires and we love vegetarian Indian food. The service wasn't great- we walked in and found a seat ourselves as no staff were to be seen. Once they noticed us we had to share menus and they didn't clearly explain how the buffer/ ordered meals worked. Eg that... More
