Summary

“Skilfully blended flavours in sensational dishes” (“delicious vegetarian” and “dazzling seafood”) come as a total surprise at this utterly nondescript-looking Keralan café, in an anonymous row of restaurants near Hammersmith town hall. “No ‘two-pot’ cooking here – clear use of fresh herbs and spices.” It’s also “extraordinarily good value”. Any gripes? Well, the room is pretty “downbeat” and “you may have to wait while they churn out the takeaways”.

Summary

“Lip-smackingly delicious Keralan food” at “unbelievably low prices” (“incredible for food of this quality”) is the surprise find at this “very basic” South Indian, easily missed in an anonymous row of shops in Hammersmith. “Staff mean well, but don’t expect too much in the way of service.”

Summary

“From the outside it looks like an average Indian café/takeaway restaurant” but this “fantastic”, if unassuming South Indian outfit “serves very good honest Keralan food at unbelievably low prices”. “You don’t go for the great ambience” though.
