“very good food for affordable price, minus settings and crowd.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

strategic location. must tries are chicken tandoori, claypot briyani and hot almond milk. the last was simply superb. the chicken was so tasty that i really felt like a second helping though i can barely eat a morsel more. environment not so good, only go if you can forgo crowds, not very hygienic conditions, unattentive servers and a bit of waiting on your part for the food for excellent taste of food, which i still prefer over all the other aspects. try not to go at peak times as the area really will be bad, u need to wait for people to clear your table for a long time, there wont be enough place to sit, food will be late etc3.

“best tandoori in Malaysia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I arrived around 8.30PM and that's it, peak hour, have to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. But worth it went i order the naan tandoori and lamb beryani. The food is superb and the service is not so long. If you go when the place is damn crowded and you are damn hungry, just ask them what is the fastest food you can get if you order.

“The real indian experience in the GTown...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Simple but great food, lots of locals, foreings, travellers, etc. All enjoying this simple and honest food. Do not expect to find luxury there but great tasty Indian food. Prices are also rock bottom! Why do not sell any beer is my only comment but this is common to most indian restaurants...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Order a Claypot Brayani Chicken Rice which cos rm 8.6. The chicken meat is nice but they served a little bit slow. Maybe too much customers were there.
