This place stands out from other Indian restaurants as it serves Kerala style dishes which you can't get anywhere else. If you have travelled to Kerala you can appreciate these dishes are tastier because of the actual spices and ingredients and not because of red...More

It's been a long time. I shouldn't have left you. The food here is better than ANY Indian restaurant I've ever visited; and that goes for Dishoom. The flavours are complex and delicious. The options are many and varied. It's even lovely for vegans. Happy.

Hi, I had a very nice fish curry one time and a biryani another time. Both were delicious and not too hot. The restaurant staff are very helpful and will guide you through the menu. Hope this helps.
