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.

Fabulous south indian restaurant with friendly staff. Food was out of this world and price was very reasonable. Unfortunately Grantham was a stop off but if we lived closer we'd be there very often

Sadly disappointed, food looked like brown gravy with lumps, korma doesn’t normally look like that. Other dishes not very spicy. One us was poorly later and the toilet facility looked like the owners not very clean bathroom. Landing light switch was black with handprints Will...not be returningMore

The food was beautiful, we absolutely loved it. I can't wait to go back. The restaurant is small, but don't let this out you off. The food is devine. Staff are very friendly.

Nice relaxing atmosphere and lovely food. Service was polite and quick however felt a little rushed as was offered the bill too quickly. Would recommend letting the customer ask for the bill when ready. Will visit again to try some of the different dishes they...offer.More

We tried this on a wet Wednesday night due to the great reviews. To be honest we felt it was overrated. We were the only diners there until shortly before we left when another couple came in. We ordered a vegetarian sharing platter to start...which was good and great value but served with a bowl of tomato ketchup? Our mains were a bit bland despite being cited as highly spiced so we asked to be toned down to medium hot. Hardly any spice at all. Pilau rice very good and side order of masala bread very good. Main issue is the venue. Constant coming and going of food deliveries with the door slamming loudly each time. The loo is down an outside side passage squeezing past a van and is filthy. Definitely need to improve customer experience.More

Don’t be fooled by the somewhat less than inspiring outside as if you go in you will be amazed by the food. Nice selection of draught beers but I think the wine list is being ‘refreshed’. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes....You could ask them how spicy you wanted your dish and it was no issue. They even prepared a dish for us that wasn’t on the menu! We were advised of the specials so chose the king prawn starter. It was amazing, as was my chilli beef and spinach rice. No room for pudding. Price was ok. Well worth the five stars in my opinion.More

The most disappointing meal we have ever had. We do not know how it gets into the top ten local restaurants. From the starters to the desert it was awful. We had a set meal for 2. Starters were tough chicken and overcooked onion bajis....Mains with so little chicken on the bone, lamb so chewy, probably old mutton etc etc. Waiter didn't appear to care when we told him. Never again.More

Visited last night as a couple, after trying South Indian cuisine elsewhere in the Uk we were interested to see what it was like here. We were not disappointed, the menu is varied and we ordered 3 starters because we could not decide and the...baby octopus in a rich tamarind sauce was amazing. The Duck masala for main course was particularly good. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. The wine selection is also very good.More

Lovely welcoming staff I had the Baby Octopus followed by the Cochin Fish Curry, both were presented well and the Cochin Fish was especially flavoursome. Would make a point of returning if ever in the area again.

The food was simply delicious. It was extremely palatable both for my husband (who is Indian) and myself (English). Would particularly recommend the Dosa, mushroom roast, chilli chicken and tadka daal! Gorgeous food and will definitely be coming back, or ordering a takeaway to explore...more of the menu. It wasn't spicy or too hot, but full of flavour. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend for value for money. A nice, quiet restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Very polite and hospitable staff too.More
