    A Masterchef fan so have followed Shelina’s journey and wanted to visit ger restaurant for some time. Our first visit didn’t disappoint. Such a friendly welcome from front of house and we were served VERY quickly although it was an early sitting. We had Gato Pima and Cauliflower poppers to start which were packed full of flavour. Mains followed minutes after finishing our starters. We opted for the Mutton Cari and Red Snapper Rougaille. Both so flavourful and a good size portion. The desserts looked amazing but we were too full to try them. A great ambience and fantastic food. We will be back!

    Outstanding dining experience! One of my group is from Mauritius and delighted in showing us the dishes we would also have had if we were at her mother’s kitchen. Friendly service and a great ambiance. And of course we bought the book!

    Very enjoyable meal. The service was excellent and the restaurant has a great ambience. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I would have been happier if my curry was spicier but it had plenty of flavour. Also, whilst I don't mind BYO it would be good if the restaurant was licensed. Overall, a really enjoyable meal out and we will be returning soon. Highly recommended.

    Coming from the Midlands i came here after a bundle of suggestions from my partner. Both decided to try something different and none chain like. Came across this on search and checked out the instagram and the food honestly looked exceptional. The pictures sold it to us with the menu too, and we decided to book a table on my visit to Southampton. Everything from the atmosphere, staff, food and surroundings was amazing and ill be coming back for when the menu is having a switch up! Probably one of the best meals i’ve had this year! Definitely recommend! See you soon!

    Had a warm welcome with a big smile when we arrived.Food was varied and as vegetarians there was ample choice. The decor was great and we enjoyed meeting Shelina herself and viewing her Masterchef trophy on view at the Bar. Service was fast and attentive but not overly. Mocktails we’re full of flavour and I didn’t miss the alcohol. We also enjoy a pudding which was an amazing chocolate pot with homemade salted caramel sauce Delicious and the best money I have spent on a meal in a long long time. I will definitely be returning.

    We have been trying to come here ever since it opened and finally got a chance to have lunch. The restaurant was almost full yet the service was prompt and friendly and with a perfectly appropriate length of time for our orders to arrive. While all the food was amazing (beautifully spiced with some amazing flavour combinations and a nice level of chilli heat) the sea dog (octopus hot dog) stole the show. While the total bill was a bit high for what we'd consider lunch, we went all-in for courses and mocktails and absolutely nothing disappointed. The only downside is having to wait for a child-free day as there's literally nothing on the menu that I'd be able to persuade my kids to eat - including the kids menu

    My sister and I booked for an early supper before a trip to the theatre..! The food was just ideal for that.. lots of interesting dishes to choose from…we ordered 3 “starter” type dishes , salad and some fries… between us… plenty to eat..! It’s nice to be able to bring your own wine and pay a small charge for corkage..! The staff were just lovely… will definitely be going back very soon!
