All local food. Obviously fresh ingredients as they have high volume of customers. You see many locals stop by and take home. Prices are really cheap but quality is good.

We went to this place as our guesthouse was nearby after it was recommended by several locals and TripAdvisor. Honestly can't say we were really impressed with the place or the food. The place is just a very basic local take away restaurant. It was...More

Little bit busy place. Nice locals food. I went their couple of time for dinner. The food was little bit spicy. But taste fantastic. Price also reasonable. Local and foreign, same price. Service was very slow. I thing they need more Waters.
