If you want a taste bud treat, I highly recommend this very different experience. The revamped house gives huge character as soon as you walk in the door. The chalk board wall lists dozens and dozens of home made (and gluten free) options. The bright punches of colour make it so fun. The service was warm and inviting. It was... More

The place is small, colourful, and very different from any restaurant I have ever been in. The owner is the chef. He is amazing, kind and talented. The meal was out of this world delicious. The staff complete the experience with their one on one service:) My husband and I were unsure when we first walked in but by the... More

We both had curry soup and curry chicken with rice, It was by far on the top 2 meals I have ever had in a restaurant. We both had iced tea and I have never tasted iced... More

confusing menu, not what I expected, the place felt cold. The owner or manager seemed to be all over the map. first he was all over us then he couldn't be found. The menu didn't have a theme just random ingredients put on the wrong dishes. The bill was higher then the food or service warranted.

I visited today with a group of friends. It was like coming in to someone's home...but with amazing food. With a large group you should be prepared to take your time but it's well worth the wait. The inventive flavours, passionate staff and funky atmosphere all make this one of the hidden gems of Cambridge.

Just passing through en route from Michigan to Toronto, and chanced upon this cafe on the web....a very lucky accident. We tried a quesadilla and a Thai curry, with a sweet potato soup and a salad accompaniment. All were beautifully presented and full of bright distinct flavours. It's unfortunate we live 300 km away....otherwise, we would be regulars.
