We enjoyed our lunch here of curry, biryani, fresh salad and bread. Ample portions left us stuffed. Service was good and friendly. A great spot to people watch while you eat and chat. We were the only non-locals dining that afternoon. Don't rush, enjoy yourself....More

It's terribly busy all the time, you have to wait in a crowded alley for a long time till you get empty seats, just to have egg or traditional breakfast! It's not appropriate for large groups at all
