Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a wonderful restaurant with a real family feel. Incredible and authentic food - the best around! It is a real dining experience - lovely interiors, and very welcoming and well presented staff, and a royal enfield to boot! 10/10

A great place to eat well before going to the theatre. Excellent food plus very personable service by Lobo. I was impressed that everything was freshly prepared and this place obviously knows a thing or two about good food!

Really loved the aesthetics of the restaurant. Very high end experience. Went for Vishu sadhya with friends. Very authentic to what we have back home in kerala. Adithya was a superb host! Brilliant experience.

People had recommended this place to us and it did not disappoint. We may well have had the tastiest curries we have ever had in a restaurant, the only downer being how poor it makes our local favourite feel now. The Keralan menu offers something...different to the usual curries and we were pleased that we were adventurous. The staff were very attentive, without being imposing and super polite. Should we visit Leicester again in the future, we'll be keen for a second delightful meal here.More

What an absolute flavour experience. You will never taste anything like this in any other restaurant. Absolutely fantastic. Southern Indian cuisine is the way to go. If I could give them 20 out of 10, they can have it
