I really like the samosas that are served. The flat bread verity is good. Some times the dishes are greasy. I always eat Vegetarian here. My husband says the meat is often dry. I like it because it's not spicy. The staff is good.

This little shop behind the national culture hall has a good mix of veggie and meat dishes, cheap, no frills, no nonsense, decent sized portions. Efficient

It's not fancy, in fact it's as basic as you can get, but that lends itself to a relaxed eating experience. The prices are so cheap you can order way... More

A very popular restaurant with a lot of local patrons. Worth finding in the back street, which is not difficult.

We used to go to this restaurant everyday in the evenings to have tea and Pakoda. Even we used to have egg fried rice.. Not an excellent place though.. But a decent kind of place to be with friends..

Had the okra and potato, samosas and lassi, all for about $5. Everything was tasty, and the service was fast and efficient. One complaint: The salty lassi wasn't salty :-(
