I love this place. Yes it can sometimes be a bit crowded and intimate but the food is worth it. I enjoy the cuisines of both Malaysia and South India so am perfectly catered for here. We always make a beeline for this restaurant when we are in Wellington and are yet to be disappointed. My wife is a fan of the Murtabak and my favourites are the Birianis and the Rendang, It is good value too,

Four of us dined around 8 pm on a Monday night. My colleague had to ask three wait staff about the availability of gluten free dishes before being advised that most dishes were suitable. The food was hearty, tasty and filling; a welcome cure to a chilly Winter's night.

Friday night, no booking, but the manager found us a seat!

A bit squashed, with the tables and chairs, but we enjoyed ourselves

The goat curry, which I've heard so much about, came up trumps and I was not disappointed
I think this might be the only restaurant in town which serves goat curry? (I could be wrong here)

The meals here are quite different from other Malaysian restaurants, as the chef is from another region in Malaysia.

Great service, even though the place was very busy.

I recommend coming here for a tasty curry

We ate earlyish on a Monday night and the place was full.
Good quick service by a charming young Malaysian guy. I had a delicious Goat Curry, but alas the Mango Lasse was not available, and my partner had a South Indian curry, ( can't remember exactly which one). The very good thing was that the two curries were completely different in taste, and this does not always happen in Indian restaurants, Also had a nice roti. They do sell beer, but not wine. A good dining experience.

I haven't eaten here for some time so entering on a wet and miserable winters day to fill up with a hot curry seemed like a good idea but you are nearly put off by the drab interior, painted in dark maroon and dull yellow. Still, I'd been here before for one of their lunchtime specials. The price has gone up a wee bit but we ordered the goat curry, which is always good here, along with their mango lasse's also very good. Very quickly (there were very few people here although it gets really full at night) our meals were delivered. For the uninitiated, a small cone of rice and a smaller bowl with goat and gravy plus a roti each might look a tiny meal. But this is so filled with rich spices and goodness that you get filled up really quickly. The goat is to die for, just melts in uour mouth, the mango drink a perfect complement (although the restaurant is BYO who needs booze at lunchtime!) and the gravy rich and wonderful. The service was unobtrusive and although the room is small (12 tiny tables and 3 or 4 larger ones) the food is larger than life in its flavour, and the cost tiny on the pocket. Of course we will be back, I just wish they'd paint it up a bit, that's all.
