“Fantastic vegetarian, amazing value”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by our hostel manager and thrilled by the Friday vegetarian special thali. Six dishes plus rice, chapati, masala chai and a dessert for two, total bill less than $8. Amazing value. Tasty, authentic Indian served on a biodegradable banana leaf. Bustling with locals at all hours of the day. Naan and tandoori served after 4pm.

“can find much better indian/tandoori in Melaca”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a very basic banana leaf restaurant with rather bland flavours and nothing really special about it. Tandoori was disappointing. Pak Putra is miles better. After our holidays in Malaysia this was at the very bottom of all Indian food we tried.
