“Great start but went downhill !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We loved the decor and the welcome. Our waiter started off really helpfully and was so friendly. Our first courses were brilliant, hot and tasty and we really looked forward to the mains. We asked for very little spice, and were told it would be served that way. Three of the five dishes were served with little or no chilli, although the lemon chicken was co.d and rubbery as it had obviously stood waiting for the fried rice which was served hot and very tasty. Then came the game changer, 2 of the meals contained so much chilli one couldn't be eaten and in fact caused swollen lips. The waiter then became argumentative telling us compare to normal it had very little chilli, but as we explained it was too much for us. Reluctantly it was changed but what came out looked like slops swimming in oil. We gave up as the waiter really didnt want to know.so it appears you'll have a great night if you don't complain, so suffer in silence or don't go.

“Dine-in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

They have both a dine-in and take-away options. The dine-in has more variety and tasted really good. The chef pawns and noddles are great. I would recommend 3 portions of whatever you like for two persons, and you may still have extra to take away.

“Decent Eastern food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Decent selection of Eastern food for being in Trinidad. Service was ok and food was good. Takeout is available during certain hours which is a plus as well.
