I visited whilst on an business trip. The food was very bland and my colleagues agreed with me. There was a dead spider on my popadom. Rather disappointing all in all.

Thursday early evening buffet. Relatively small choice compared to other buffets but all good, samosas especially.

Eat here occasionally before going to the cinema, which is opposite, we love south indian food so for us this is always a treat. Love the masala dosa (spicy potato stuffed pancake) with a sambar sauce. A real treat.

The only reason I didn't give the lowest rating is because the service was good, food came quickly and the restaurant is nicely decorated. However, the food was terrible. Particularly the keema naan, didn't have any meat it in them, just some strange powdered spicey...More
