We visited with our 2 daughters and had a delicious meal. The dishes were all freshly prepared and were excellent! The best curry we've had since our holiday in Sri Lanka last year! Also extremely good value for money. We will be back! Highly recommended.

I visited Arusuvai with a friend in May, having not been for a while. It was the first night it was reopened after being refurbished. The food was excellent with very friendly service. The dhosas are delicious. Will definitely return again.
