Food was unexpectedly spicy.... real spicy indeed!

It had been awhile since we last dined here and we decided to give it another go before going back to the states. We ordered 2 types of Naan Breads.... Mint and the Tandoori Baked and had the Chickpeas with thick sauce curry, a Mixed Vegetable Spicy Curry and a portion of the Chicken Black Pepper... read more

Have been going to this restaurant for the last 6 or 7 years whenever we visited Penang. On our last visit, we ordered from the a la carte menu as usual, rather than from the cheaper buffet style section which has food that would have been sitting there for hours, as the restaurant is open all day. The waiter informed... More

Have Chili crab, Chicken hadrabad, chili chicken and a couple if naans and you are on your way to food heaven. If you can't handle chili food don't order it over here!

I wouldn't recommend this place to others as the service was very poor. The waiter was blur and in a rush. He wouldn't hold his ground to finish the order placing, On the the other hand, there's an electronic that is used to call the waiter, well guess what ? It doesn't work. I don't recommend this place to others.... More

The food was good but the staff is not attentive. There is lots of restaurant in Tanjung Bungah but the different is the service level.

Visited for dinner as just opposite our hotel. Disappointing service and had to wait to be served although there were few customers when we were there. Quality of food certainly not up to what is expected in Penang. Did not return.

There is a variety of food to choose from and the set up is quite confusing. Make sure you take a look at everything on offer before ordering from the menu. Reshmi kebab was dry and not tasty, seafood sizzler and lamb curry was good.

Since the restaurant was walking distance from our hotel my husband and decided to have lunch and dinner here. The food was very delicious (that explains why we went back for dinner), but the attitude of waiter was bad. Throwing menu's and treating us like we cannot afford to eat there.. Sickening attitude. My husband and i order plain briyani... More

The food was OK - average for a Malaysian. We had thosai - which was just average. The Tandoori Chicken with Naan was above average with the accompanying gravies/chutneys etc. I would visit again, if I was nearby and had no other place to eat at.
