We invite you to embark on a culinary journey of the Indian Subcontinent and explore the many regional styles of cooking that India has to offer. Our cuisine is based on most popular dishes of five Southern states in India and few dishes of Northern discover for yourself the hidden flavours and aromas of individually prepared dishes from these regions.
We are operating since 3rd July 2009, under the guidance of Chef Janavi Prasad and Chef Hossian Khan; we are pleased to offer an exciting menu which we really hope will elevate your tastebuds to a spiritual level. A talented and well travelled chef with an immense passion for Indian food, Hossain worked in top restaurants and five star Hotels in South India. Our menu is not only a showcase for regional Indian cooking, but also a showcase undoubted skills as chefs. From the subtle spicing of Mugals, Maharajas to latest Nizam influenced North and South Indian grills and from kormas to the fierier South Indian style of cooking using coconut, tamarind and chilli, we offer a menu to cater for all palates. With individual spicing and preparation each of our dishes displays unique taste.
For seafood aficionados we have dishes from coastal Goa and the serene backwaters of Kerala. Our vegetarian and non-vegetarian selection is sourced from all over the Indian Sub-continent; try our Dal Makhani (Punjabi slow cooked lentils) to Chepa Pulusu (Fish Curry from Andhra Pradesh). We do have very popular dishes from which you never tasted in any other restaurant. We are especially thankful to customers who supported and are still supporting

Portion size is good and always very hot in temperature.
Naans are huge and are free when you order takeaway which I have not found at any other Indian restaurant yet.
Prices very reasonable too.
The food was tasty and well presented. The group shared platters to start with which were very good. No complaints about the mains either and a good supply of kingfisher strong to wash it all down.
Well worth the trip across town!
The staff are always very friendly and ensure we have everything we need. The food is always very quick to come out to us and presented well. Everything we have tried on the menu, korma, madras, kadhi…has been lovely and we will keep going until we have tried the whole menu.
The service was very good and organised, with very polite and attentive staff. The food presentation was also very good. A credit to the chef.
My wife and I started with the platter for two. I recommend this if you want to get a feel for Indian cuisine.
I am also one to try something a little different from the menu and this place offers a large variety. Something for everyone.
I chose the Chicken Kadhai. It was done to perfection and I would recommend it especially if you enjoy coriander in you dishes.
Congratulations South of India, we will be back on a regular basis…. Keep up the great work!
