It's a clean tiny restaurant with tasty local dishes. Only 4 tables so you are sitting on the floor very comfortable surrounded by cushions. Nice rooftop view of the city. It was nice to stop by. Service was ok.

The spot makes this place. It's already worth going there just to sit in the little balcony in the morning, basking in the sun (it's winter now).

It got a bit difficult to find this little and cosy place, run by its owner and chef Teju, but once there everything was excellent. We took a nut masala and a chicken tikka masala on the floor of a balcony overlooking the lower town. Very good food at a good price

The best traditional decor is the first impressing things and sitting on the floor with some typical serving style food was a good experience and we tried some local kadi and some chapati which were good.
