We had dinner here for a special occasion. Fantastic! We ordered as many different dishes as we could as they all looked so good and not one of them disappointed. Fresh and well cooked ingredients. Stunning and delicious food. Also so many wonderful options if you are vegetarian/vegan. The staff were absolutely lovely and attentive. We had three small children with us and they were so kind and accommodating. Overall we couldn’t have asked for a lovelier experience. A real local gem.
Wonderful different food and great veggie options. Service could not be better. Always buy their homemade kerala mix delicious treat. Will visit as often as possible.
Good food and service. Nice surroundings. Reasonable prices. South India curries are lighter than the “normal’ fare which makes a pleasant change. Will go again.
