Food was cheap here and not bad. Very basic facilities but enjoyed the happy and busy atmosphere. Go with a positive spirit and you will love it. Do NOT get the pizza as is overpriced and extremely small but get an extra smoothie/fruit juices. I...More

The food it’s fine, the place it’s always busy...a little bit to noisy for me. The big plus..almost fast food, not the western type, but still you don’t have to wait 2 hours to eat. The rice it’s good and also the fish.

To be clear this is best described as a roadside covered cafeteria with a broad range of curries, rice, kebabs, samosas and breads. Low priced with a good juice bar. There is waiter service but it’s best to look and point. Good place to grab...More
