“Great Indian Food”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

The food at this restuarant was excellent. We ordered a range of curries and roti etc and it was all delicious and including the drinks for 3 of us the cost was very low. Overall good food and great value. See you next visit.

“Good Indian Food”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is at an excellent location. We had dosai, filter coffee, chicken thali set and all of them were very good. Their service was very fast and the waiters are very friendly. It is very cheap food but with excellent taste.

“Great food, and Cheap”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This place is right at the entrance to Little India, but not actually *IN* Little India (Look for the fountain with all the pigeons). Go in, sit down, and in a moment or two a waiter will arrive with a Banana Leaf - which is both your place mat AND your plate. "Dahl and Rice is RM 4 and comes with 3 different side dishes included. Add a curry of your choice and a drink and you will still come out with change from a RM10 bill (Unless you opt for something more than the basics offered). If you are in Melaka you have to stop here for lunch at least once.
