“Bad Attitude by the Missus”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Riyas in located in the clean environment of MP Shah hospital. They started off with fresh, wholesome homemade food some years ago but over the last two years, the owners are tired and they have very bad attitude. Their sunday buffet of a gujju lunch was fantastic but they have solidly messed it up with cold food and chappatis warmed 5 times until they have become papadums instead. The owner has not painted the premises nor washed the buffet cloth for over 2 months. The hospital Management must wake up and get this business back into shape or close it down.

“Vegetarian food at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I was of two minds, whether to write this review at all. The place is so small... What if everybody will flock there?!
Tucked between two buildings in M.P.Shah Hospital, the place is easily missed. It is essentially a canteen, but what a canteen! Size matters, therefore, given insignificance of it, the food is virtually home made. I can talk a lot, but let me say the best (paneer) samosas I have ever tried are prepared there (my regards to our second best Talisman...). Best tree tomato juice, too. Every day they serve a speciality, with the highlight of the week being Thali (Gujarati traditional) lunch buffet. This is a real treat! Everything, repeat, everything, is delicious. And a wrap up with the delicious digestive, never tried such thing before, either.
One more thing about the food: no extra oil or/and cream. Not your usual feeling "I am stuffed!!!", not at all. The food is reasonalby light.
It is going to be our regular place.
