Our curries this evening were fantastic. Lots of flavour, good sized portions, and the chef cooked the level of spice we requested. As well as great food, very friendly staff and buzzy atmosphere. Would come again!

Delicious food. OMG looovvve the masala dosa. Ela is really good for the members of our group who need to eat dairy and gluten free. And you would never know that the food is actually gluten/dairy free. It tastes so good. Totally recommend!
