“Not bad but could be tastier and more generous with portion size”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

We went here after a shopping trip because we wanted South Indian food and it was the only South Indian restaurant we saw in the area. We ordered the fish thali. There was very little fish and curry and the vegetable dishes in the thali were quite bland. Most disappointing was the fact we were still hungry at the end. Maybe the other dishes might have been a better choice - the table next to us ordered what looked like biriyani and it looked good and was a reasonable sized portion. Wouldn't go back here again as you can get biriyani in any north Indian restaurant in the area.

“Great value and delicious!”

Love the food here. The meat thali was excellent value. The service was v good. Took a few minutes to come but it's freshly made and well worth the wait. Would recommend it highly.

“Highly In-Efficient. Portions too small.”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

There was 5 of us in the group. We had typical hoppers and egg-hoppers. They were not perfect, but reasonable. The curry portions were small. 5 small prawns in a dish with limited gravy. The mutton curry followed a similar pattern too. The Pol sambol, was not the usual dreid coconut and was not really pol sambol. It is usually moist to dry and not runny. The restaurant is clean and tidy. But the staff presentation is poor and service to be desired. Not sure how they ended with 3 star rating. Wont be going back in a hurry.

“Painfully slow service and a hair found in Biryiani.”
Reviewed 31 May 2012 via mobile

Thought we would try this out as my girlfriend is of Keralan origin and reviews were pretty good. Although most of the starters came out promptly, we waited over an hour for the main course. I had asked for my Masala Dosai to be brought out with the starters but there was a major language problem with the waitress. When the main finally arrived there was a hair in the Fish Biriany so we decided to leave and paid for our starters and drinks only. We will not be returning!!
