Delicious food. Good service. We didn't even notice the lack of meat! Absolutely amazing value, couldn't believe the bill was right it was so small.

“Wholesome fare”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Had the Woodlands lunch special. This was served on a steel tray called thali and the tray consisted of at least 8 steel bowls each containing a different dish. The thali is all vegetarian and also comes with one Indian bread "chappati" and the waiter serves rice halfway through the meal.
The food was tasty and wholesome and more than enough food for one person to finish. Unbelievably, this cost just 9 RMB!
Being air conditioned is a huge plus given the searing heat outside.
There is a wide range of food choices outside of the thali all of which sounded appetising.

“Nothing special, though worth a visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

A very basic establishment. Many waiters who managed to bring the drinks when the food was nearly finished. Lovely taste, but altogether the food was too fat. Good value for money though.

“Amazingly good value”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

A basic but very pleasant vegetarian indian restaurant. Staff were friendly, and the food was delicious. We ordered a few dishes to share, and were particularly keen on the special biryani and the vegetable masala.

“Wow!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Short of being in Big India, I've never loved an Indian restaurant as much as I did this one. Great value thalis with tasty curries. 35MYR to feed a family of four + one baby. It's great vegetarian food and it's cheap - what more could you want?!
