Summary

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”.
