Raising the bar for local Indian eateries since it opened in 2007 (there's also a Penarth spinoff), this reliably packed venture – often drawing the local academic set – has a winning menu of thalis and other Keralan fare not always to be found at your average subcontinental.

“South Indian heaven” awaits in the unlikely setting of Cardiff at this, the original of a regional mini-chain – “full of a lively crowd reflecting the academic community around the nearby university”; its “interesting and unusual menu” focuses on seafood, and “pleases the entire family – rare!”

It’s “always a treat” to dine at this pioneer of new-wave Keralan and South Indian cuisine, whose “exciting” and “imaginative” menus include a focus on seafood. Founded in 2006, the Cardiff original wins consistently high ratings and has now spawned a small regional chain.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
