Great tasting food!

It is not the cleanest but adequate. Not at all fancy but great tasting food .. plain and simple. I have eaten there many times and enjoyed it. The staff are rather nonchallant most times but once they were very helpful.

Popped in for an evening meal with our family and was extremely impressed by the very wide range of dishes and the helpfulness of the staff in helping us choose what we wanted. Service was fast and the drinks not only tasted good but looked good as well, as did the food we ordered. Would happily return any time.

I have visited this hawker styled restaurant on a number of occasions and advise if you have not been then go as this is the Penang locals highly regarded Indian restaurant. The food is excellent, the ambience is great as it is busy everyday of the week and if the service is slow then remember it take time to deliver... More

Over the last 8 years never had a bad meal yet! Good tandoori chicken and fish; terrific range of food and good choice of Indian sweets. Outside seating, with cover. Attentive staff

The food was okay. We were recommended this place for vegetarian food by our hotel. While we did find a lot of vegetarian options, the food tasted okay. The service was very slow. They had some weird system to call the waiter by pressing a call bell, but no one seemed to be paying attention to it. The only saving... More

Indian food? Yes please. I love the butter naan set so I usually order that along with a mango lassy. But the banana leaf is also delish. Butter chicken is yummo and ice tea comes in a large cold metal cup if you ask for large. Nice thirst quencher. This is not a sit-down-for-an-AC candle-light dinner sort of place. This... More
