Friendly environment, should try out the curry and deep fried vegetables, and mango lassy. Location is quite easy to find.

“Insult to Indian Cuisine and to the restaurant industry”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The restaurant is called Passion of Spices now. The taste however does nothing to appeal to one's passion for food. We had decided to visit this restaurant for lunch one Friday afternoon, unfortunately for us. After ordering the banana leaf cuisine, we could not decide which was worse, the horrible taste of the food or the service in the restaurant ....or rather lack thereof. The thing that stood out the most was the lack of manners and absence of proper etiquette which the manager or the person running the place was displaying. This place is definitely not worth visiting twice.....or even once for that matter.

“Dinner served on a banana leaf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food was fresh and delicious. There was a nice variety of food on the menu and they were able to make the spicy dished less spicy for the people in our party that couldn't handle the heat.
