I went to this outlet many times for breakfast and lunch and the service standard and staff's working tempo are consistent. Variety of meat, vegetarian dishes and wondering what to be order. 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

I'm not a huge Indian fan, I usually only order butter or tandoori chicken. It was a shame when they said they had run out of tandoori and naan bread!! 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

I visited the shop on Tuesday,21/10/2014 between 10.30am-11.00am. The shop had only few customers and mainly were foreigners and few locals.I approached the waiter to give my order (when it should be the other way round) as none came to me and guess what?..the waiter had eye contact with me and clearly heard what I said, but, just ignored and...

Well known for banana leaf in town and the restaurant located nearby the famous Jonker Street. Tasty banana leaf food with lots of variety for both vege and non-vege and price is really reasonable.

We came here every day of our stay in melaka for Breakfast and tea because it was such good food at a very reasonable price. It was only over the road from a great guesthouse. The rice dish served on a banana leaf filled us up for the day and the tandoori and naan combination for tea was delicious. Would... More

The food was tasty, absolutely fulfilling and it made me happily dig into the banana leafs. The Rasam and buttermilk were authentic, loved the puffy idli and dal-rice was yummy.

We went here every day for three days and tried breakfast, lunch and dinner. Friendly staff, picture menu and very good food for a reasonable price (good combination deals but we think the best value is the tandoori chicken and naan combo!). Also highly recommend their mango lassi and an excellent ice milo, have a meal here!

My girlfriend and I came here late at 9:30 but this was still open. We ordered something really basic like the Nasi Goreng and Mee Hoon Goreng. Both were decent. We also ordered Thosai which came with a dhall and two chutney. The hygiene for these sauce were questionable by Western standards (they look like they've been here for a... More
