Great restaurant that specializes in South Indian food.

Service was a bit slow to start and we had to ask for menus and water after 5-10 minutes of nobody coming (wasn't a very busy night either). It did improve though once our food started coming out.

We got the chili prawns, chicken dosa, eggplant curry and lamb curry. Everything was delicious, but I was particularly fond of the chicken...more

I love Indian food and this wasn't your traditional Indian experience, since it was souther Indian food. I didn't know what to get and our waiter Jay was a great help in picking what to get. The service was great and extremely friendly. Overall the food was great and would recommend it to any one in the area.more

Was there recently for lunch and had their south Indian tali and I have to say, it was not too bad. They had a fair amount of dishes, but the trick is not expect too much and you will be fine. Taste of some of their dishes were far from the original but to even find a south Indian restaurant in this part of London is a bonus in itself. Service - excellent.more

Southern Indian with a deep complexity of flavors in our chettinadu kolli ( chicken curry) which linger a long time on the tongue after each bite. The menu says there are 23 different ingredients making up the spices and flavors of this dish. (-; Reminds me of spicy chocolate. The tomato rice complemented this...more
