A rare authentic treat for Soton & veggie to boot!
Posted on 03 / 14 / 2011
Southampton has lots of restaurants but few are really special or different so we'll definitely be going back to help make sure this one stays - if you're vegetarian you really must go as a) it's lovely and b) vege restaurants in Southampton don't always get enough support, but since this one should appeal to everyone, simply because the food is so good, I am optimistic! We reckon this is the best Indian food we've had in Southampton, and possibly in the UK - fresh, authentic & unusual, but also down to earth & unshowy. Extensive menu if you know your South Indian/Sri Lankan food but if not don't be baffled, the owner just brought us some recommendations we would probably never have picked but were delicious - we left feeling full but not bloated as we often do after a curry. Nice relaxed atmosphere - felt a bit like being on holiday. We spent £45 for 2 people - 3 courses inc side dishes and beer, but if you just want a simple meal you could get dosa and a pint for under £10 (it's on the edge of the shopping area for a quiet haven at lunch time).
Delicious, Authentic, Not too greasy!
