Bright and bustling South Indian restaurant serving up tasty, authentic dishes with plenty of veggie and gluten-free options.
Serving up the aromatic flavours of South India, this cosy, informal restaurant is rushed off its feet. In addition to Tanjore being particularly beloved by the city's vegan and vegetarian community for their many veggie-friendly options, its BYOB policy and lack of a corkage charge means that its often bustling with large, happy parties. But, of course, it's the food that really draws the crowds. The chicken milagu soup, stewed in a broth packed with lentils and fresh curry leaves, is the perfect tonic to a cold day. Their curry options are certainly no slouch either, such as a Chennai mango seafood curry that successfully harmonises the creaminess of the cashew with the acidic tang of mango and tamarind. However, the menu's true crowning jewel remains its dosa selection, with a special shout-out to the masala dosa, which encases a mash of spiced potatoes, tomato and onion in a wrapper that is perfectly crisp yet soft, served alongside generous portions of sambar and chutneys.
