Really bad customer service. Rude waiters/receptionist, irrespective of that, they say that their food gets over by 1 and the restaurant closes at 2:30. Why are you open till 2:30 then?

Having lived in Princeton, I'm not sure what took me so long to try this place, but I am sure glad I did. We have been devotees of Cross Culture, and continue to be, but this place may surpass it. If nothing else, it offers...More

We've eaten here a few times, and have generally enjoyed the food, in particular liking the novelty of some meals served on banana leaves. However, the service is disorganized (reminds me of eating in a restaurant in India) and the ambience is not that relaxing....More
