This was our first visit to this new restaurant in Hawkhurst and a most enjoyable experience. A fantastic venue for vegetarians and meat eaters with offers of off menu dishes subject to notice. Try one of the dosa...a huge filled pancake with different fillings. All very good value.

Krishna is a refreshing and interesting addition to the restaurants on offer in Hawkhurst and thoroughly recommended if you can venture beyond the standard British take on Indian food. The food of southern India is completely different from the north which is our standard experience. The menu and cooking at Krishn's reflects this to the extent of needing to ask for help in understanding and ordering. The very helpful advice and explanation of the menu enabled us to order and enjoy a superb meal. A very different meal but full of wonderful flavours leaving us very satisfied without that heavy feeling. A great location for a meal after visiting the Kino cinema a few doors away. The only downside was that there were too few customers on our mid week evening so lacked a little in atmosphere. Try it with an open mind, go expecting a very different culinary experience but if you don't already know South Indian food ask for advice.

It was also great value, at £45 for two, with beers.

Great old building creates a good atmosphere. the service was good at the start and the food as normal is very good.
It was a shame that the service for desert was much longer than usual as they busy! Otherwise it would have been a five.

Had a takeaway and it was delicious. Not familiar with South Indian food so took a gamble on a few items and it was worth it. Yes it's not your bog standard curry house so the menu is different but all the better for it. Will order again.

It was fantastic to find this SOUTH Indian restaurant. It serves authentic south Indian food from Kerala - such a change from the 'standard' Indian on the High Street. The menu may look different, it may not contain all the usual dishes but the food they serve is exceptionally good. The dosas are unbelievable! Will certainly go back very soon and will recommend it to all my curry-eating friends.
The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly - they are very happy to help you through the menu if you are new to this type of Indian food. The restaurant is new and deserves support, and success, as it is the only authentic South Indian in a 30 mile radius.
Wonderful.
