Went in for dinner and asked the waiter if banana leaf meal was available. He said yes and served rice with sambhar and only TWO vegetable choices. There was no papadam. On top of that, the mutton plate that I ordered had only 4 pieces and 3 of them were bones. The bill came up to RM16. Will never dine... More

i been going there for the past 3 years but now i hardly go. The reason is the quality of food is not as good as before and i guess it is because of the change of chefs and workers. The service is really dissapointing. Hope the management will improve on these two things if they want to get good... More

This is one of the few places I have eaten in the world where you can get authentic south India food. Most Indian food is associated with northern India. The service was very friendly and they were very accommodating to make the meal to my level of tolerance for spicy. If you are staying at one of the downtown hotels... More
