Situated along the railway line that you walk along on the way to and from Ella Rock. We stopped for lunch on the way back. Great fruit juices and the vegetable fried rice with dhal curry was perfectly spiced and very tasty. A hidden gem.

We went there twice for dinner. The food was really good and freshly prepared. The best was the different kind of veggie curries and also the fried rice, which was really delicious with lots of flavour.
