The menu is full of dishes you want to taste. Massala fish, Massala Dhosa, Kerala Duck were all superb. The sauces were delicious. The chef will match the spiciness to your request and the waiters will give you advice if needed. Do try it.

I had the lamb stew as a takeaway, it was pretty average, the lamb was quite tender, but the sauce seemed heavy but it didn’t have a lot of flavour.

Wonderful meal that was enjoyed by everyone in the three generations of our family group. Lovely fresh flavours, aromatic and super tasty. The service was friendly and efficient - clearly very proud of the food they were serving. We would definitely go again.
