Place is ok, staff is helpful and friendly. Food is good but overpriced. I can enjoy a similar meal at Taman university skudai Indian restaurant (kesavan) at 1/3 the price in chakra.

Authentic Indian cuisines prepared with choice spices and herbs. Probably the best Indian food in JB...good for eat-in or take-outs. Also they are good at catering parties and dinners.

The staples comprised of white Basmati rice and a... More
