Sheffield City Centre's only authentic South Indian Restaurant where the food is freshly cooked on order. Enjoy the taste of succulent chicken, quail, lamb, fish ,prawns, calamari & egg dishes cooked in distinctive South Indian spices. Flavoursome vegetable dishes for those who love their veggies! Try delectable paper thin Dosas & Vadas (savoury doughnuts) drenched in South Indian style Chutneys & tangy Sambar. NOT UK's typical curry house fare! Find us on Glossop Rd ( end of West Street, at Sheffield Baths , Swim Inn Building ). Fully licensed Restaurant & Bar with a TAKE AWAY SERVICE too .Can cater for private events at home or other venues.

As authentic as it can get, some of the best Dosa's I have had outside of Bombay my hometown. Some of the starters and curries are spot on in terms of taste and authenticity to South Indian cuisine. This is our regular and we have...More

We visited Maveli on a Monday evening with a friend. The restaurant was welcoming and the service good. The food is excellent. Try the dosa as a starter and enjoy the fish molee, chicken kurma and nilgiri mutton.
