My third visit, on my own this time.
The service is exemplary. No pressure, no undue fawning, just very civil and competent – exactly my personal preference. The food arrived in good order, and in good time too. Nothing rushed, nothing delayed – couldn't have been better. Maybe they're just very good at perceiving their customer's preiferences. Some dude that rushed in and seemed a bit hectic got served very quickly, and rushed out again well before me, while I was happy taking the opportunity to read my paper.
The food itself was unfamiliar, but all the same very interesting and enjoyable. Some components seemed too watery, but it all worked out fine in the end – more my unfamiliarity than any problem with the food itself. It certainly was sufficiently spicy, and the whole experience was one of novelty.
Given it was all vegetarian, I was entirely spoiled for choice. There are a great deal of options, and frankly I'd like to try every one of them. Had something different on every occasion, and every one has proven just fine. (In fact, since the misses had different dishes on my previous two visits.
My advice is to disregard your initial impression upon being served a dish – one might think it looks strange, watery, too small and so forth. But it isn't. Once you've had it, you realise it had indeed been served exactly as it should.
The price is very good value too. I'm happy to say this is worth a rating of 5.
