It's been a long time. I shouldn't have left you. The food here is better than ANY Indian restaurant I've ever visited; and that goes for Dishoom. The flavours are complex and delicious. The options are many and varied. It's even lovely for vegans. Happy.

Fabulous experience. People trying to do something different and get away from the British-Bangladeshi homogeneous fare. A taste of South India with a love of Kerala and all it offers in seafood, taste and warmth. Go for the masala dosa!! Thoroughly recommended. Really likeable owner

Me and my wife sometimes pop here at lunch and have the Business lunch which is a Tali. You get several dishes and are all really tasty and this comes with a large Roti. All freshly made. I would definitely recommend this place.

Hi, I had a very nice fish curry one time and a biryani another time. Both were delicious and not too hot. The restaurant staff are very helpful and will guide you through the menu. Hope this helps.
