Why we love it

Kumar’s simple décor is all part of the charm of this City Road restaurant, where it’s all about the southern Indian food and not about the fripperies. Bring your own booze or order a refreshing mango lassi and sit yourself down for an Indian meal like nowhere else in Cardiff.

Indo-Chinese classics like cauliflower Manchurian and chilli paneer are heady with soy and chilli, whilst crisp and paper thin dosas are served with comforting lentil sambal and creamy coconut chutney. But it’s their lamb kothu parotta which is the pick of the bunch, combining finely chopped flaky bread, yielding lamb, fragrant curry leaf, egg, red onion and tomatoes.


Pick up your own beer before you arrive
Grab the table in the window and watch the bustle of City Road go by
Order a bowl of mutton kothu parotta, you won’t regret it
