Plenty of flavour and vegan options

“Great flavours and plenty of vegan options/ability to make dishes vegan.

“Relaxed atmosphere/not pretentious. I would suggest booking as it is small and seems busy all the time.

“I had the Bhel Puri for starters as recommended by the waiter which was delicious along with Samosas.

“Then I had two half curries, Masoor Dall and mixed veg curry. Both were great, I preferred the Dall.

“All ended up being very reasonably priced too, with a great music playlist featuring the YMCA amongst other bangers!
