Nandana & Sharat Syamala’s part-crowdfunded venue is “not your standard Indian restaurant”“more like home cooking” inspired by the regional cuisines of Hyderabad and Andhra Pradesh, with “some interesting specials always available”. “The venue was previously a Wetherspoons, so it’s a large space which is a challenge to make entirely comfortable but it’s got a good ambience and is well worth a visit”.

Nandana & Sharat Syamala are moving their Hyderabadi kitchen into new premises in Caversham after their “great eatery” and growing national delivery service outgrew its original London Street site on the back of rave reviews. The new, part-crowdfunded venue is a former Wetherpoons pub, the Baron Cadogan, is to give the couple sufficient space to run a ‘fine-dining’ restaurant as well as a separate open kitchen with bar counter for snacks, small plates and street food, plus eight beers from local brewers. As of October 2022, both the original address and national delivery are closed as they focus all their efforts on the move.

Nandana & Sharat Syamala share kitchen duties at this “colourfully decorated” Hyderabadi outfit – a big hit locally since its 2018 opening. The “thoughtful, lovingly crafted dishes exploding with flavour” mean it's “definitely not an after-the-boozer local Indian”, but rather an “absolute treat!” even when sober.

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).
