'The best tea I've tasted!'

This was actually said by another guest - the café has no licence so beer is served in a teapot! You ask for 'special tea'. I think this is the novelty selling point for the place as practically all the clientele there when we visited (as recommended by our driver) were Westerners. Having said that... read more

Our driver took us (a family of four) to this restaurant for dinner. It looks very anonymous but the food is excellent and the service is really good. The garlic naan bread is to die for - don't miss it! We went back for lunch the following day and tried out some more dishes, and we give them all our... More
