Great food for low price

“Food was very good and they were very nice! We were visiting and they asked us about where we were from and gave us some advice on where we should visit.

“Also, I have never had food like that before, so I was very interested and pleasantly surprised, especially given that it was all vegetarian. All for a great price, too.”

Hidden treasure of Taunton

“Went to this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening and the service was absolutely efficient and food sublime.

“I just don't have the words to describe this culinary experience. we are all vegetarians and they made us lovely vegetarian dishes.

“Their dal is so authentic and the flavours in the mains were just pure bliss. Naan breads were soft and we all enjoyed the whole meal. Just wish I could give them 10 stars if I could.”
