Well, the title says it all. The food is nice, but... The non-vegetarian starter platter barely fills a side plate (no kidding, for something that cost £8). When we eventually got our main courses (like 45 minutes later), they were honestly very tasty but the...More

Took take away from Curry Leaf in Apr 2017, and don't recall the food to be exemplary. It was good enough to have found comfort food while travelling to exeter.

A different slant on Indian food with this specialising in southern India. Items on the menu I've nver seen or had before. Interesting!

Out of a billion people in India, over 65% are Hindu vegetarian so it's nice to find an Indian restaurant that doesn't offer the usual Penjabi anglicised staples. And it's actually quite hard to find a Dosa restaurant. So full marks for the menu, zero...More
