This place was recommended by my friend, so we went to try out one night. We ordered (my friend recommended) Tandoori chicken which come with the Naan set and mutton curry rice. Good thing about the chicken that the flavour was brought throughout the meat, not like most chicken cooking which has a raw-ish taste towards the bone (that's my... More

I went here with my boyfriend after a recommendation from our hostel reception. The food was amazing, some of the best we've had throughout Asia. The place is full of locals which says something about the standard of the food. We went there twice in four nights as we enjoyed it so much. We had butter chicken masala, chicken tandoori... More

We ordered a crab dish, a vindaloo and a chicken korma, together with various naan breads. All I can say is wow...the food was amazing! The 3 of us just about rolled out... More

Not much to look at but the food is delicious. A lot of staff running around and we didn't always get what we were after drinks-wise but that added to the charm and was quite amusing. Moreover, three of us ate our fill and it cost around £8 GBP.

If you've been to Penang you know there is a massive Indian population in the city. If you haven't been to Penang yet, now you know. That being said, when you see most of the locals munching down here you know the food must be good! Very inexpensive and quick! Good place for a quick snack when walking the streets... More
