Had lovely starters - chicken65 prawns cauliflower and especially the okra - so tasty and yummy. Our mains were dosas again really nice. The kingfisher beer complements the food very well. Such a fantastic eating place with lovely staff and efficient service.

Great street food menu - fried mussels were incredible as was the spicy cauliflower. Top quality food, great service, inventive and exciting menu. Tucked away in a residential area it's worth making a journey to try out.

Ive never been to south india but would very much like to if the food is like this. Its the second time here and we've mixed it up. Both the starters and mains are if high quality but we really like ordering 4 or 5 starters and then share a main. There is so much choice and so many new flavours to discover and the service is also excellent. Would 100% recommend and will return.

Been hoping to visit for ages, and finally got round to it on a filthy night in March. What a splendid concept and menu! The main issue is that with only two of us, we could only get through 4 starters, a main and two puddings between us. There’s far more to try, so we’ll have to come back, with friends, to work our way through the full menu in due course. Tasty, but not heavy, with a real range of stuff to try. The beef starter and the Amma’s Mess pudding were arguably stand out, but it was a close run thing with everything else.

Here as part of a group of guys, the service was great and they catered for my gluten free very well.
We had a mixture of food between us all. I went for the Crispy Okra, Fiery Chicken and Masala Dosa. Loved the okra but although the chicken was nicely spiced it wasn't 'fiery' at all and I wasn't hugely impressed with the Masala Dosa. It's my favourite dish in the Indian Tiffin Room in Manchester and this one didn't compare. Just a personal choice but wasn't sure about the nuts and veg in it.
Having said that, everyone enjoyed their food and we had a great evening.

Thanks very much for your honest review. We welcome all feedback on our dishes and service and we are glad that overall your evening was good and your party was pleased. If we can welcome you again in the future we would be happy to produce a Dosa for you without the nuts, we use a wedding breakfast recipe but would be happy to make it for you differently if you request from the staff. Once again, thanks for the review and choosing to dine with us.
