Change of owners, different menu, not communicated when booking. Old name and menus still on website

It would have been useful if you hadn’t confirmed a booking for a restaurant closed for renovations so I didn’t have to spend thirty minutes driving to it. Not so cool!

I have enjoyed Periyar before. I went back to Periyar on Thursday 24/1/19 with a table of 9 people to celebrate my birthday. Four friends wanted to share a banquet, the $31 (non-vegetarian) banquet.

We discussed this at length with the waitress, and pointed to the $31 banquet on the menu. When the food appeared, they were given the $41 banquet and ended up having to pay $41 each. I did not find out at the time to complain - I assumed Periyar would charge them $31 each, as it was Periyar's mistake.

I feel awkward that this happened to my friends.

This is only the second Indian Restaurant we know of that offers 'dosas' on the menu. Very yummy. The food is excellent but our choices were not very spicy (hot) which would be our only complaint. Kingfisher beer is on tap and the corkage charge for wine was reasonable at $3/person. The restaurant is spacious and has been in business for some years so it's doing something right. We parked right outside after the bus lane became free to all users.

This is one of my regular haunts. The service s always excellent and the food great. They do not play loud music (so you can actually have a conversation without yelling). The pace is extremely well presented and the clientele appear to dress up a little. (In other words it is a pleasingly "couth" venue).

Not great
My husbands Seaford dish lacked flavour
Entrees nice
Waiter kept trying to take plates before we were finished which was annoying
We live north on the beaches so the long drive was not worth it

It was a rainy Saturday evening, so quite busy. Food was excellent, however despite what I had read on trip adviser it was very noisy. Good for a group but not good on a Saturday evening for a catch up with someone. Noise level was high, but that was hardly the restaurants fault. I would definitely go again but maybe on a week night.

We arrived at 8 pm on a Friday night. The place was pumping. We were there to catch up and wondered if it was too noisy to be able to do that. Our host immediately found us a table away from the maddening crowd and quickly bought us a jug of water and the menu. We ordered and were served with speed and courtesy which left us to chew the fat about all that had happened since our last rendezvous. The food was sublime and the service impeccable and suddenly it was 10pm and everyone else was gone. Great restaurant for any occasion.

Lovely spot and great service. A nice restaurant to catch up with family and celebrate a birthday. I would like to see a few more vegan options though that stated vegan but what I chose from which was vegetarian and DF was delicious. I asked whether or not what I ordered was free of egg and any other animal product to which our waiter double checked. Thank you.
