This is one of many options in Little India, and we found it to be a nice place for a quick bite at lunch. We shared one dish, and had a few cups of tea.

Food was good and tasty, and the service was OK.

There is smallish area as soon as you go in or a larger air conditioned room, both seemed OK.

I probably wouldn’t make a special trip to go there, but if you’re in Little India, and feel puckish, then this place is a nice stop off.

I prefer the Sri Ananda in Tanjung Bungah. There seem to be far fewer rats. The banana leaf and pickle is good.

The best indian cuisine in Penang !! Breads are freshly made, curry chicken and best to be eaten in the morning; hot and spicy! Chicken varuval are the spiciest and the best in town :)

We figured they run two restaurants, one of which is non-veg. We had Mango Lassis, Butter Chicken, Cheese Naan and a few veggie dishes we picked from the resto next door for less than 10$ and found the Butter Chicken so good(after being to India, Singapore, Malaysia many times) that we came twice in 2 days! Service was very friendly with lots of smiles for an authentic indian restaurant. Great experience!

We went to the all vegetarian outlet and it was near perfect. The choice is great and tasty, the restaurant is pretty clean for the price level. There is a small selection of sweets at the entrance which you have to try. Best mango lassie ever. Service was very fast and attentive on our visits. Usually quite full with locals, most of them were families eating out. We went back a few times and were never disappointed. If I had to recommend any restaurant in Penang, this is the place !
