Food - I'm from an Indian background and fortunately my family are known to be good cooks back home and in London (wonder why we haven't gone into the food business). Anyway, food was rubbish, nothing that'd make you vommit but bland and couldn't get less authentic. Ordered a chicken tikka masala and my mrs ordered a vegetable curry. They... More

Some of the worst customer service I have ever encountered!!!! The staff were rude, uninterested and asking for assistance was a threatening experience! Having been told we could only have 1 item on the menu as "everything else had gone" it was very frustrating to see other customers receiving dishes we were told were unavailable in the following hour. The... More

Poor service. Dirty. But the food is nice. What can I say more? They need to improve in terms of service and cleanliness.

This place was recommended by our hostel. When we went along it was a little intimidating as the place was packed and we weren't sure of the system. Just choose a table and be patient waiting for someone to bring a menu. The food was lovely, we had chicken biryani and chicken tikka masala. It was some of the nicest... More

Had Naan bread, two Teh Tarik and it cost about a dollar US. If you're looking for fancy and nice staff, however, I'd say go somewhere else. Also, I don't know if I'd order anything from the buffet, sticking to freshly made Naan for now.

We went there 4x in 3 days. I kid you not. (Well, we actually had about 22 half-meals in 3 days though.. but still!) We tried their naan, roti, tosai, chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, a lentil dish... and they were aaaaall yummy! Oh, and they're open 24 hours a day so that's another good thing :) Only complaint: they... More

A recommended spot if you want to try local's briani. The originality of its curry's recipe make you came twice. Bit slow service if you came at peak hour, but sure get a cozy spot upstairs and enjoy the ambient of mamak restaurant.

The food was good, but the restaurant was very noisy (from guests, and TV). Many people come there, so they don't care about their guests, really bad service. I don't recommend cause there are some good restaurants around George Town.
