Good INDIAN fare

Offers a good variety of Indian cuisines ranging from tosai, vadai to rotis. Try their palak paneer, my favorite. Also check out their tandoori sets. They offer a variety of beverages but I find the chai masala a must-try.

Cutlery was dirty. Can smell the toilets near the back. Food was average. Grilled chicken far too dry. Disappointment to the franchise which is hundred times better in George town location.

Based on local recommendations we as a family decided to try out the restaurant. We had expected it be a totally upper class restaurant based on the locals description but similar to the long beach street cafes. The rating is an average of food, service etc. The food was better then our expectations, the only issue was that they got... More

Came here due to the high reviews and wanted to find out if it was as good as some of the hawkers market food. If you're looking for something a bit more upmarket but still affordable this place is for you! Delicious food, great service and seems to always be busy which is a good sign. Extensive menu and it... More

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.

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
