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!
Love the food here! Service was excellent and the choice of dishes was great! Great restaurant.
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).
My husbands Seaford dish lacked flavour
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
Never fails to impress. Fabulous food, lovely service.
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.
Always good food and service. A reliable choice for a good night out.
As we have always experienced, friendly attentive service and delicious Southern Indian cuisine. Not your usual ho hum Indian food. Very well presented, beautifully spiced and at a reasonable price
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.
We had an amazing dinner here. The food was very flavourful with perfect portion sizes and great value for money. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Overall it was a lovely evening and I highly recommend visiting, I know I'll definitely be back.
Very impressed with your host,your food quality and your pleasant srvice.
Great food and service. Great local restaurant, easy booking and staff are very friendly.
The food is amazing, flavorsome and the subtle use of spices reminded us of our trip to South India. The food is really beautiful. We will return for sure. Nice Staff also
