It took me some effort to give this restaurant a try, as it looks basic-basic, to the level that I question their sanitary standards... We did however give it a try and it was OK. The food was tasty without being outstanding, and the people were friendly. I can't say that this is a must visit Indian, but it's certainly... More

The food are extremely tasty. Close to home cook. Avoid to go on busy days as they are short of manpower.

You could be in India. Well it is in Little India. Fantastic tasting curries. Everything looked and tasted delicious. Could not ask for more authentic food. Great prices. Give it a go. You will be on a winner.

This was a lot of fun - food is served on a banana leaf and it is great, tasty Indian food at a ridiculously low price. The curries is all in bain maries, but that actually helps you choose something. The food is not the best I've had but that that price, I couldn't have expected any better. Great home... More

Since my in-laws are vegetarians we were hunting for some vegetarian options.Trip Advisor itself suggested me this place. I have no regrets. I wouldn't say its the best Indian food I have ever had but its decent food and the best as per the need of the hour.

Beside Tosai, the Banana Leaf Rice is excellent. There are a wide range of Roti Canai to select. The drinks taste good.

Everytime I dine in there, I felt like the atmosphere similar in Chennai where the staffs going around with silver compartments serving dishes to diners and you may... More

Nonetheless I tried something new and had the chicken set, it was abit spicy and had bones it but it was yum! I would also recommend the roti bread. I... More
