Excellent selection of food. Authentic flavor to Indian cuisine. I make it a point to come here every other month to treat myself and the family to wonderful Indian food, both north and south cuisine. the ambiance is unique set within an old 60's Malaysian house, and the service/staff are wonderful, courteous and prompt.

Really tasty Indian dishes but portions are not that big and you can probably get better value elsewhere.

Food is good and you have an option to try North Indian dishes but may be a little pricey. Overall, still one of the best places to have a small gathering etc..

Every dishes that we ordered was excellent. From the rice to the fried mushrooms to the masala chicken; every dish was really good. Went there again the 2nd time but was closed. Didn't know that they will close on occasions like Thaipusam.

Delicious curry in wonderful surroundings. If you' re ever in or passing through Jahor I would recommend you give them a try. Also worth booking as many locals and travelers have discovered this little gem. Enjoy..

The first time I went there this trip the only thing that wasn't 100% was the onion Bhaji that was a little chewy and oily. Other than that the food was really good and service the... More

They have delicious varieties of Indian dishes but I feel that it is suitable for those who love hot & spicy food. Though I feel that the dishes are rather spicy, I still love it.......
