“Delicious”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Fantastic food in basic but friendly surroundings.

Came here 8 years ago and loved it and been twice on this trip.

Try Chilli Chicken with rice and veg washed down with a couple of beers and a chai latte for "pudding"

Highly recommended

Reviewed March 16, 2013

Bad Customer Service. Like people owe them money. You need to keep on asking for the basic items which served in indian restaurant. Seem fine serving foreigners but when come to local (sigh )

“Clean, tasty and friendly”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Very quiet the night we visited, lots of friendly and attentive staff. We tried the banana leaf meal were impressed with the presentation and the flavours of the accompaniments. The beans and the cabbage were favourites.
Chicken Ayam and a mix of squid and prawns ( a special request that was accepted with a smile).
Great meal, cold drinks and reasonably priced.
Enjoy!

“Very Good Indian fare”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We tried Jothy's on the recommendation of our driver as it was air conditioned on a 32c day. Its located behind and underneath Marina Court. Its a clean and friendly restaurant with great Indian food. We went a bit mad ordering a little too much food all eaten off a banana leaf except the Birani Chicken. The quality was very good but a little pricey but hey we polished off the lot and enjoyed everything about the place.
