Your salad and bhaji from the market stall were just divine. I can’t wait to try your curries. There 3 sizes of tubs for takeaway salads.

This place is fantastic - atmosphere alone is great. Totally chilled, good service and food is the best I have had in a while. Just found out it’s closing soon though so get down while you can!

Thali. I’ve had many in India. Set lunch menus that include one dhal (obligatory) and two or more other dishes (often vegetarian) plus rice, chapati, popadom, raita and pickles. In India all for the princely sun of £1.50. So, Thali cafe. Let’s do a thali!...More

Up until recently, I had only tried the thali - great variance of pickles and chutney with plenty of rice and the main - whether it be a chicken based curry or minced lamb has been the star of the plate. Now with the recent...More
