As has been mentioned about this restaurant before, the menu is quite different with from what you would expect from a normal English Indian. The food was light and really tasty, I went for... More

I've been here many times in the past and the food and service has always been so amazing. I've not been here for about 10 years until recently, I was worried the food might not be as good as I remember. I'm pleased to say the food is just as good if not better! This is the place for real... More

I have been many an Indian restaurant in my time. This is simply the best. You can taste all the ingredients. So distinctive in flavour. Would really recommend this restaurant and lovely staff.

First visit tonight. Would definitely come back. Not your normal Indian but pleasantly surprised. Reasonably priced and the food was very authentic. Also liked the fact the food was light, and not too filling. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were very attentive. Great first impression.

The fish dishes are superb here, as is the dosa. The presentation of the food is also lovely. Also, try the rice bread. Superb. The Staff are friendly and helpful, plus it's only a few paces from The Railway!

I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant specialising in Keralite cuisine. I've been a couple of times to Kerala and always wanted to eat Appams again. Its a kind of Crêpe (dosa) in the shape of a Wok and sweeter than a Dosa. The prawns were excellent. It is not a restaurant you go to for the ambience. ..but... More
