Great variety and good value for money. Non aircon and cleanliness leaves a bit to be desired.. had both north indian and south indian food both of which was excellent.. Bill typically less than R 75 for a family with 2 young kids

Outstanding – possibly the best Indian we’ve ever eaten, and we eat plenty of Indian food back home in the UK. Excellent choice too.

We love the ambience of outdoors at this place we know as SABs( the acronym), and we love the food even more. It is always busy especially lunch and dinner. Some of our favorites are the chicken kurma, paleek paneer, chicken kabobs, chicken tikka, banana leave, and the wonderful breads, roti chani, and Nan.They also have a wonderful fresh bread they fill with curry or other wonderful sauces. The brewed coffee is also a favorite. If you do not want to order from the menu, there is always a nasi kandar( buffet) choice to choose from to eat there or to take away. The menu has a few asian and western items to choose from. The prices are very reasonable.

Was brought here by a Penang local friend and the group of 9 of us (including adults and children) enjoyed the good food amidst the casual and relaxed setting. We had a good time and enjoyed the food. From the butter garlic naan to the various masala, mutton curry, briyani, tandoori chicken, maggi goreng, roti tissue, mutton murtabak, everything was good. It was a simple authentic Indian but good Indian dinner.

At 6.30pm I ordered the Vegetarian special menu (limited) but was told it wasn't ready. Staff suggested rice and veggies so walked me to the serving area. I pointed out 2 veggie dishes, asking if they were vegetaruan, asked for a half rice serving and waited back at tbe table, drinking a teh tarik.
Dinner arrived with a curry sauce poured over the veggies and rice. Ate about 5 spoons and found a big chunk of meat. Left the meal, paid and left; as the staff were fooling by the counter and I couldn't see a manager to complain to.

India has how many vegetarians??? How can a restaurant serve someone who ordered a vegetarian meal meat?

Guess I will have to travel into Georgetown for veggie dishes as this restaurant doesn't care enough about its vegetarian customers.
