What a wonderful place! Normally pass by due to the queue out the door, but was relatively quiet this afternoon. Food is exceptional, especially the vegetarian options, which are really authentic. The staff are good, and the atmosphere great. Glad to be back here.

Fab meal and great service in a lovely location and restaurant. Delicious dosa, and good vegetarian/vegan options. The 'tapas' portions are bigger than you would think, and the price is very reasonable. Would recommend a visit here!

Mix British traditional cafe, traditional authentic Indian cooking and Spanish tapas style presentation and you have a winning formula. Eat a lot of small different excellent dishes washed down with a beer, wine or water and you'll leave both stimulated and satisfied!!!

Amazing Indian food with great staff and service to match. It's really nice to be able to share smaller dishes with a large group. The garlic naan was fantastic! Will be back.
