The customer service was very helpful, and the food excellent. Although we often eat curry in England, this is the first time I had had South Indian dishes, which I really liked.

I’ve been a big fan of this place for the last 3 years. Normally excellent food. Tonight we ordered food to pick and it was as if it was from a different restaurant. The curry was extremely watery and tasteless, we didn’t actually finish it...More

Just great food from a great team. Our party of 6 tried both the starters and mains and we were all impressed with the dishes ordered. Good sized portions, so go hungry if you wish to tackle the full menu of three courses. Highly recommended...More

This restaurant serves authentic southern Indian food. The staff are mostly from Kerala & the spices they use in their food are great. We were a group of four so each ordered a different dish to share.everything was fresh & tasty.

Being from kerala, it is appreciative that the restaurant has been innovative in linking curries to local names of places in kerala. The chicken biriyani with fried chicken in it was a good version.. The fish moiled, appam, porotta was all nice.
