First Review by CarlosGP

Delicious, simple and affordable Indian canteen - Edit

I've only recently discovered Thenga Cafe and I will definitely go back. They serve a fixed menu of a curry, rice and two sides. When I went I had a lentil dahl, onion bhajis and a cold salad, all delicious. The whole things only cost £5.95. The decor isn't anything special but it is a lovely welcoming space and the staff are very friendly. They also serve homemade cakes and really good fair trade coffee. Recommended for a quick and cheap lunch.

Pros: great food, quick service

Friendly and relaxed - Edit

Good value set lunch - an Indian thali which changes daily. My dhal, veg curry, rice, puri and salad was £5.95. All tasty but I particularly enjoyed the puri. They also had a vegan pasty and cakes on the menu when I visited.
Really friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere. I will be back.

Pros: Tasty thali , Good value, Friendly staff

Cons: Not all vegan

Friendly place - Edit

So there are two entrances, one from Cromer St and one from Judd St. The one from Judd st seems to be the more obvious one, since they would put a sign in front of it, inviting costumers in.
Thenga Cafe provides a vegan set lunch, some wrap, some pastries (most of range is vegan), a section of bars and so on and tea, coffee, soft drinks of cause.
The food isn't extraordinary, yet good and reasonably priced. Although the premise reminds me of some school or hostel canteen, they put some nice decoration here and there. There is a lot of room, that's great.
Staff is knowledable and helpful. WiFi works quite alright. And finally, coffee is good.
I have the impression that you could buy one coffee and stay there the whole day, no one would bother.

Cozy and friendly - Edit

This Cafe is part of a yoga studio, so it has no sign out on the street; one needs to find it by the address, though on good weather days they put a board outside the door with the menu of the day. The South Indian style food is excellent, though, and served quickly and with great friendliness. Will definitely come back here if in the area.

Pros: Delicious Indian style food (South Indian mostly), Friendly, peaceful atmosphere, Reasonable prices

Cons: The portions could be a bit more generous
