Flavorless Indian food

Perhaps it was because I visited on the third day of Chinese New Year, but the three veggie dishes I ordered werey insipid, saucy and unworhty of more than a few bites. These were the baingan bhartha, the gobi adrakhi and the bindhi masala. The veggie kulcha, tandoori chicken pulao and garlic naan... read more

Friendly owner who welcomed you at the porch. Big menu with a lot of choice, also lots of vegetarian options. Ate there two times, both times real tasty. A bit different than I'm used to but that watch I like about Indian food, depending on the cook it's different every time. Prices were not to expensive.

Good, authentic Indian flavours and friendly staff. The chicken was not the best quality, but the superb sauce hid this fact. We would have visited again, but I twisted my ankle and couldn't walk that far!

I got into a conversation with someone about the last good Indian food I had, and though I'm in Guatemala right now, I thought back to Sarawak of all places. Over a year ago, I still remember that the Palak Paneer, one of my favorite dishes in the world, was outstanding at Lyn's. I'm only allowed to put February 2014... More

You're supposed to be a tandoori restaurant and you serve 'nan' that looks and tastes like limp Wonder Bread. Give me a break. Raita from hell. Really, really heavy and horrid mutton masala. Just awful. The chicken tandoori was only passable. And not cheap! Go to Delhi and take some cooking lessons!

We were the only ones around when dining. That being the case service was inattentive after the order having to draw attention to top up drinks but pleasant enough. The big let down was the food. Portions were small. Pappadam came with a chutney that seems to look like bottled chili sauce. The chicken tikka was about 6-8 bit size... More

This is a small family run restaurant that all the locals know about & only a few tourists. Great service, good size meals, freshly cooked & served well. If you want a good meal in a 'western' style venue, air conditioned inside or a few tables outside then make the time to go to Lyn's.
