Fantastic service and delicious food. Try the dosa to start. We shared one and had the cashew nut pakora too. Lots of choice on mains. We loved ours and heard lots of positive comments from adjoining tables about theirs too. Highly recommended.

Staying at the Bloomsbury Hotel and this restaurant is across the road. Taste explosion. Great food, great service, great night. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

We chose this place because it was close to the British Museum, but that was its main plus. The food was okay but pretty blah. The service, however, was terrible. There were only a few occupied tables when we went there for lunch, but it...More

We smelled curry on the way to the British Museum and looked up restaurants nearby on our way out. So glad we picked this one- lovely staff, meal was so delicious and they had some dishes not typical in other Indian restaurants. Highly recommend!

I love South Indian food and don’t often dine out in Bloomsbury. Though the frontage looks modest, like a tardis it opens into an airy conservatory. We had a masala dosa (potato pancake), iddly (rice and chutney) and a king fish curry. If I hadn’t...More

We have always enjoyed eating here and the last visit was no exception. Good friendly service, very tasty food, and a nice bottle of wine. This is an excellent restaurant and not too expensive compared to other over praised places. Recommended.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
