The food in Svetlans’s Kitchen was absolutely authentic. The flavours of the dishes were so good. Everything was freshly made and came to the table piping hot. The staff were very attentive and courteous.

I love this place. They do fantastic, authentic South Indian dishes, such as dosas, utthapam and appam, as well as serving a lovely Indian white wine, which is really worth trying. i will definitely be going back again soon.
