DO NOT GO....


We went to this crowded cheap mentality surrounded place. The food was Ok. At the end our dinner, My hubby tipped the waiter little less than 10%. We left to the car & was about to start the car, The manager comes running behind asking for more tip.. My hubby answered that it is indecent to ask for Tip following you to the car. He said its indecent to leave a tip less than 10%. We got furious & asid that we would take back the tip we left.. He said its Ok & walked away..

All their veggie stuff is excellent! I've found their chicken skewers to be on the raw side. Roti prata for appetizer and fried bananas with ice cream for dessert are the best!

Nice vegetarian spread and good staff behaviour. I had dinner couple of times at this place. The chairs/ table kept outside give a different feel to the entire experience.

It was worth the hype, I have been here before but they improved on the service amicability. The food is wonderfully prepared, the client service is very very courteous. The catch ? you almost need to wait 15 to 20 min anytime you go, even during lunch time. That tells you people are fond of the place and for a good reason. I went twice, although I usually wouldn't want to wait to be have a bite. worth it all the way.

Delicious food - lunch is packed, but dinner starts at 5 and should be easier to get a table. The food is FLAVORFUL and well-prepared - I go every time I'm in town.
