The “excellent South Indian menu” at this Bloomsbury stalwart includes “interesting Keralese fish specialities that distinguish it from the average curry house”. The “modern colonial” décor and “especially graceful service” add to the appeal (though not everybody likes the art). “Very handy for the British Museum and a good alternative to the underwhelming chain options in Charlotte Street”.

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).
