Walkable distance from Tottenham Court Rd tube.
Blonde wood and other decor light coloured. Indian music plays in the background except for when the track veers on to Western muzak, different to Cafe del Mar or Air etc. Seven thirty to nine are the busiest times at night I was informed. Five to six it is very quiet and suitable for singles as was the case when I visited.
The menu contains South Indian food. I had vadas for starter, bhaji curry and vegetable pilau for main and mango lassi. The vada ware perfectly crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, perhaps because they were quite big with a very small hole in the middle. The curry was very good although the smashed vegetables contained in it consisted mostly of potatoes. I would reccommend anyone on a diet to order something different to what I did. Ghee was liberally present. The menu did note that it was curry with ghee. The lassi was good. Overall good cuisine.
Service is very friendly. There was only one other patron when I visited, from Columbia visiting London, who often passes through India on the way to Poland for business...When she left it was time for my interview.
good cuisine, good value, peaceful place w v friendly staff
if staff bored you may have to entertain, veers to type of Western muzak sometimes
