A hidden gem! The food is authentic and portions are very generous! Myself and my friends got served after arriving (very) late, the staff are so accommodating! A bonus that you can bring your own wine, beer etc! Great find.

This is a small restaurant very near Borough tube with a good menu. Most of the meals look good with great flavours. My wife's dish and the side dish of okra tasted great. Unfortunately my dish (goat curry) was over drenched in ghee and the...More

The meal was amazing. I took my parents out for dinner, so I was looking for something local. Seen this restaurant everyday I came home. So I wanted to try. The food was just amazing, so flavourful and delicate. Not heavy and spicy as often....More

Honestly some of the best food I have eaten for a while. Great selection of vegetarian Indian food. Excellent service. Don't be put off by the slightly dated menu design. Food is well worth the price. Bring your own beer makes the experience all the...More

Nice independent south Indian restaurant with unusual but tasty dishes. Staff are lovely and it's a byo [Tesco round the corner] so very cost effective too. The lamb chop biryani was beautifully executed my only request is that the dishes marked 'hot' on the menu...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

An intimate South Indian restaurant very close to Borough market in #London, where you can BYO wine and beer and not pay any corkage fee. Freshly sourced produce delivered daily. A delivery service s also available.Recently rated as top 3 Indian Restaurant in Lambeth by ThreeBestRated UK. Very busy little retaurant so always advisable to book in advance. Party menu also available for celebration bookings.
