Summary

“The home-made parathas, masala dosas and pickles are the stuff of dreams” at this early pioneer of the Peckham food scene – “a favourite for many years”. The “delicious South Indian regional food” comes courtesy of Claire Fisher, who was inspired to open the venue after her travels. One or two reporters, though, feel that while it’s “a nice neighbourhood restaurant”, it “never quite lives up to our high expectations” nowadays.

Summary

“South India comes to South London” at this “friendly and cosy” Peckham “perennial” – the area’s longest serving foodie hotspot – which is “untypical, as you sit at long wooden tables and are served by female, non-Asian staff” (it’s run by Brit Claire Fisher who was inspired to open it after her return from travelling). “Fabulous spicing, good quality ingredients, and a regularly changing menu ensure fresh surprises at each visit!”

Summary

“The true flavours of South India, with no compromises and no frills” have won a formidable foodie reputation for “what is little more than a corner shop” in Peckham; “delightful people” too.

Summary

“The most authentic South Indian outside of Kerala” (well nearly) – this “crowded” but “lovely”, tiny “breath-of-fresh-air” makes a “marvellous find” in deepest Peckham; “genial” staff provide “a limited menu” of “crisp dosas” and other “herb-filled, fresh-tasting” fare.
