Lunch on a Monday. I was the only customer so I was a tad nervous. I had a very satisfying lunch! The vegetarian thali was excellent (I grew up on Indian food). The manager on duty was very friendly and welcomed me with his signature...More

A super evening once again. Decor has been updated and the menu extended. I had the lamb dosa. Excellent. It’s great to get a selection of starters to share. There are some amazing options.

Service is awful, waitress refuses to write down orders claiming she will remember. Naturally missed out parts of the drinks etc. Food is tasty but does not compensate for the poor service. Restaurant is dirty with table and floors not cleaned.

The floors and tables are cleaned every day, as well as after customers leave. Yesterday was the busiest day of the year, please be reasonable.

The aloo Bomb and sev puri esp are avoidable. The masala dosa is good but it seemed are server was reluctant to take our orders and quite our order wrong thrice.

Hello and thank you for taking the trouble to review us. I'm sorry you had a bad experience on the service front, but the reason isn't reluctance - we have a new trainee who is still learning.

We were looking for something Indian and our choice that evening was Masala Dosa. We don't regret because food was delicious. I have chosen menu of the day. They have nice choice of lassi which is a really good desert after spicy food.

Visited this little Indian place today. The food is very nice. Try the Masala Dosa (Duh...) and the Chai Tea. The service is decent. If you’re in the neighbourhood definitely worth a visit.
