We had a cauliflower starter, with a main of masala dosa and idly. It was the first time we have had southern indian vegetable dishes and they were very tasty. The service was also good. A good choice for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans.

I have ordered three takeaways from this restaurant. Every time the food was excellent and delivered within time. Excellent flavours. Not oily. Good portion sizes on mains and rice, but small naan bread, so order one each if hungry. I would recommend this restaurant
