Oh Chai Street. You were our favourite but today we found that the thali is now between £12 and £13+. You've always been great value. Why the price hike? We walked out (first time ever) and had a superb Turkish meal across the road for...More

I'm not a huge fan of Indian so I approached this meal with some trepidation. I'm happy to say I was worried for nothing. Friendly staff, lovely place. Little small but felt cost rather than cramped. Food came very fast, we had a selection of...More

Visited this place with my friends for lunch. I ordered for a veg thali. The food taste was good. The food quantity was very less and the rate was on the higher side , but worth a visit.
