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.

Visited whilst staying overnight. Service was terrible, left waiting a long time before order was taken then waited even longer for food! Whilst we were waiting 2 sets of diners had come and left for this very reason. Food was nice, portions however were small. All four of us were still hungry when we left. When we asked for the bill a 12.5% service charge was added! No mention of this before hand or on the menu. I did not pay the service charge. Would most definitely not be dining here again.

Really good authentic South Indian Food. It’s a bit different to the normal Indians that are perhaps adapted to the English palate but fantastic. The waiter was spot on and the service was good with normal costs. The spicy mutton starter was amazing and so was the onion bhajee with a difference. Lots of fresh rice and nice curry sauce with good quality soft chicken. Really good if you want great authentic food. Faultless for me tonight

Had to write another review for this great restaurant. This time, ordered a takeaway via Just Eat for a family get together. It was excellent in every way. Everyone was amazed by the flavours and taste. Not your normal ‘Indian’ menu but go and explore it. You won’t regret it. Easily the best Indian I have tried in the UK.

Great South Indian dishes hidden away in Staines. More should come and eat.
The restaurant remained 3/4 empty while we were there at 7:30 on Friday night.

The Mutton Kothu was also delicious.

Svetlana’s chicken and lamb biryanis were tasty, with bit more kick than the usual takeaway. Their strength though lies in their South Indian cuisine as they say so themselves.

The masala dosa was excellent, paper thin and the potato masala filling just right. The sauces with the idli were lovely.
