This “no-nonsense”, “authentic, family-run caff” in Tooting split opinion this year. Most reporters still approve its “wide variety of unusual Sri Lankan specialities and incredibly good value thali selection” all at “cheap prices” in “a rather 1980s time-warp dining room”. Others though are more cautious: “tipped as one of the better south Indians in Tooting but very cramped and nothing out-of-the-ordinary in my experience”.

“Mind-bogglingly hot Sri Lankan and South Indian curries”, all at “bargain prices” make this family-run outfit in Tooting a must-visit. “Cafeteria-style by day and licensed restaurant (which resembles a suburban dining-room) by night”. Top Tip – “the lunchtime deal is astonishing value: a selection of vegetarian or non-veggie dishes and a soft drink for a fiver”.

For 30 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).
