Review: Central location. Blonde wood, light coloured, pleasant cafeteria vibe. There is artwork on the walls - paintings of Indian scenes when I visited. The person with me said he liked it but not enough to pay 700 pounds for it. Patrons are many and varied. Hippies, Subcontinental people, travelers, young, older, groups and pairs and singles. The queue at dinner time is constantly coming out of the door. You might have to sit next to someone else as it may be the only space you can find/ some tables are grouped in quite big groupings - you may have less people in your group. Dinner ends at around eight thirty pm at which time the Hare Krishna followers gather outside and sing the Hare Krishna mantra. They were led by someone playing an electric ukulele on when I went. Amongst items on the menu, there is all you can eat thali, there is also quiche, pizza, calzone and lasagna. Deserts are mostly Western except for laddu. There is a drinks fridge with soft drinks and you can get lassi, tea and coffee. I had thali which was hearty and tasty. There are some choices you can make, depends on what is currently available at the counter. They bring in new things as others run out/ they are ready. I was full with just one serving. I had lassi which was strawberry! It was a bit thin and quite sweet. Had pieces of strawberry in it so maybe it was made from fresh strawberries. I had strawberry cheesecake for dessert. Fairly tasty and filling. You need to order and pay at the counter, where Hare Krishna followers serve you. At six pounds ninety-five for the all you can eat thali it is great value.
