“Reasonable prices, great crab roti”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Not a bad place. Not exactly an upmarket eatery how ever there are a few comfy seats to sit in.

No table service you have to go up and order and pay and then they bring the food to you.

Great selecton of roti's. Try the mexican crab roti its excellent.

“A nice place for a relaxed chat”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Went to this place with a bunch of friends for a relaxed evening. Things end pretty much there coz though they have some delicious food, digging onto them is bit of an issue being seated in couches. Also, though the staff was ok, they could have been more friendly so that the visitors would have a more memorable experience.
