This is a great place to eat. The food is amazing and the staff are lovely. We have eaten in a few places during our week in Eastbourne and this is the best. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

I pretty much said it in the title.....nothing at all fancy, no great wine list.....but very nice simple food, intelligently spiced, and great value for money. And very good service. We went twice over two successive weekends, and a lot of the reason for the return visit was the service we received both times from a personable and professional young man named Stanley. He was very helpful describing dishes (spice levels were a concern for one of our party) and making sure we had enough food (we had a time issue so needed to order enough in one go). All good!

One piece of advice for the owner and staff....the second trip we sat outside.....and it was pretty filthy. Clean it up!!!!

Thank you so much for your constructive review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our cuisine and service. Compliments passed to one of our dear collegues Stanley.
With regards to your advice, we are sorry about this time as we were extremely busy that day and guests were flowing in and out from morning leaving us no time to do a deep clean between the designs on our garden tables and chairs. Not an excuse, but definitely this has been taken seriously from the other day. Thank you.

Welcoming staff and amazing food. First time my partner had sampled South Indian food and is now keen for more after sampling Masala dosa and delicious fish curry with lemon rice. We dined here prior to going to a show and the staff made sure we had plenty of time. Attentive, friendly service throughout. Looking forward to returning as soon as possible! Highly recommend.

Popped in for lunch, ordered the set menu with the Dosa. Excellent meal, fresh and tasty. I would recommend this meal to anyone. Outdoor seating at the front of the restaurant with the sun out is wonderful.

Yes, I could have had fish and chips but a dosa is the Indian equivalent.
