    This restaurant was wonderful. The food was wonderful, thoughtfully prepared and flavoursome. The staff knew the menu well and obviously took pride in the food they served. They took time and care to help us choose a wonderful range of dishes to make up a memorable meal. The servings were generous and extremely reasonably priced. Although they serve alcohol, they accept BYO and corkage was a very reasonable $2.50 per person. I cannot wait to go back and I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    Our second time there and food is still as good as ever. The staff are very polite but less engaging than the first time. Would return again to try other items on their extensive menu.

    Quiet little place but food is surprisingly very good. Could have been excellent but it was a touch too salty for my taste. Service and ambience is top-notch.

    Inka had run short of fish, lamb and chappathi. So our carefully planned meal outing was uselesss. The service and staff , Arun in particular was very good , apologetic for the shortage in the evening caused by heavy lunchtime demand. The substitute offered for lamb was goat but despite their Assurance they would compensate with more quantity because of the bone, we struggled 4 of us to find two pieces each! Even the okra had microscopic pieces ! On the positive side of things, the flavours were great. 50 pct of nothing is still nothing !

    Service was poor. We had to wait close to 50 minutes for our food and there was only one wait staff member. Food was tasty but the slow service soured the experience.

    Exceptional service and tasty food. Staff were very busy but really hospitable and friendly. Dosa was tasty, especially with the potato filling. Thanks!

    They are trying to showcase Southern Indian food, taste is good, service can be an issue. Not having Samosa and Butter Chicken on our second visit doesn't help. Hope that they can continue to strive and showcase Southern Indian food.

    Food was good and tasty. Service not so good. We had to ask someone to take our empty plates away after they sat there for 15 minutes.

    The food was delicious, the dosas were nice and crispy. The kotthu was not too spicy and the lamb was tender. Would go back.
