Why we love it?

Quite simply the freshest, most-authentic Indian street food Bristol has to offer (insofar as you can distill an entire subcontinent’s rich and varying culinary tradition down to a single menu). From the moment you step in, you can see this is something a bit different to your standard Masala and Lager indian restaurant. It's a small and beautifully decorated space. A few attractive tables and chairs are carefully dotted-around – the walls are exposed brick with beautiful coloured window-frames hung up. But the food is the real-winner.

Owners Shilpi and Farouk have created a changing-menu that explores the cuisine of regions across India and Bangladesh. Aside from the main-courses, Shilpi creates delicious Indian bites including Pakoras and Samosas - and invites you to try them. Their young son sat down next to us and chatted away. It's a happy family-restaurant - and their food will make you happy.

Wriggle Highlights

  • Lovingly created fresh Indian food
  • Charming service from the owners, Farouk and Shilpi, and their family
  • A soothing Mango Lassi on a hot day
