Sublime South Indian Cuisine

My dad treated us all to a fabulous South Indian meal last night at this amazing eatery.

On arrival we were treated to fresh, crispy popadoms accompanied by a spicy onion chutney, a tangy red sauces and a cooling yoghurt dip. As a special treat the chef made us fresh vegetable pakoras with a green spicy coriander chutney which hit the spot.

We ordered a chilli paneer dosa, a chicken dosa, a masala dosa and idli, these were the South Indian specialities. For balance we also ordered lamb karahi, garlic nan and pilau rice.

The dosas are basically large pancakes stuffed with paneer, chicken and spiced potatoes respectively. These are served with a tangy sambhar and a creamy sauce. The idli is a steamed rice cake also served with sambhar and sauce. The dosa was cooked to perfection-form on the outside and soft on the inside. The fillings were exquisite and sambhar was perfect as was the chutney. The idli was nice and fluffy. The lamb was lovely and tender and full of flavour and rice and nan were beautiful.

The taste of the dosa and idli was just as if we were eating in Chennai whilst Lamb,rice and nan as if eating in Delhi!!

Service was excellent, place was spotless and it’s a bring your own alcohol restaurant. The bill was a very modest £50 which was great value for 5 adults!! They also deliver and do take out but sit in is the best!!
