Good for lunch

Place is clean, food is good, service okay and prices are modest. Good value for money. And they serve Nescafe coffee from a machine that will even prepare capuccini and lattes. Perhaps not of the finest Italian quality, but certainly not bad either.

Busy little restaurant serving curries, roti, samosa etc. Also has coffee. I would recommend getting them to give you a plate with a selection of the various roti etc on offer - you pay for waht you eat

It is really another one of those eateries that you find all over South Asia. The place was clean and they offer a variety of snacks. The best of the lot are their wadas. If you like Indian snack buy their soft and wonderful wadas. That is what we ate. I would recommend this place for their wadas only. ranila

The best donuts around. We had a selection of local and authentic bits and bobs. Would recommend going at lunch time rather than the evening as it can be sat there a while. No complaints when it's so cheap and cheerful.

We took an assort of filled rotis and fried stuff...they bring you a big plate and they will only charge you what you eat. Be careful, the vegetarian roti is quite spicy! Food is really good and really cheap
