Food here was great and got value for money as well! The chicken was cooked perfectly and it came very quickly. The service was slow, it took almost 20 minutes for anyone to approach us and the staff were not very friendly.

Well what can I say. Was in Penang 2 nights and first night ate at the Danish Biryani and I thought that was amazing but then ate here on the second night.

I used to live on Penang island. My buddies and I would literally eat here two or three times a week. The food is delicious. Great spicy chicken, butter chicken, chicken tikka, and claypots. The naan is also on point. I highly recommend eating here when you are in Penang.

Although they are famous for their biryani, it still just a similiar looking like other biryani, except they have this different styles of plating it. But the chicken milani is a whole other levels.

We went here for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel front desk. Our waiter was incredibly helpful in suggesting dishes for us and we got the mutton rogan josh, the chicken tikka masala with biriyani rice and some tandoor chicken with lots of naan. It was easily some of the best Indian food we have ever eaten - 5/5... More

Place or restaurant you can't missed while you in Penang. Try cheese naan or chicken Briyani. Marvelous... Cheap and reasonable price. A lot of people during peak hours (lunch) on weekdays. Give a try !!

We attempted to eat here but the staff were so rude and weren't interested in accommodating us! We waited for around 5 minutes and were ignored so we decided to go and find our own table, the staff then shouted at us to tell us to get out and that they had no tables!! So disgustingly rude!!!
