“We really like the food here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Great Indian food, and lovely friendly service.

Reasonable prices, and curries we tried were all really good, only minor grumble would be the portion size on lamb dishes a little mean - not the case with chicken dishes which were abundant!

Try the home made paneer it really rocks!

“Family meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Service was extremely slow but food when it arrived was OK. The manager was aware of delay and apologised which impressed us.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Just ate there earlier tonight. within walking distance from all major resorts and food was great. Went with two families and shared 2 curry dishes, would highly reccommend the Chicken Tikka Masala which was one of the best i had.
Great service, always a waiter ready for whatever you need and very reasonable prices (around $6AUD a meal). Manager is friendly and asked how the meal was.

“Tasty Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

I had an enjoyable meal but I feel that the place lacked atmosphere and I did not feel the need to linger over my meal but the food was well cooked although the service was a little erratic

“avoid like the plague”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

We went to this restaurant our first night in penang..being tired and hungry, we were looking forward to a good meal. Our expectations were bouyed by the good reviews for this place....we were in for a rude shock.
None of the recommended dishes were good. The mutton kebabs were uninspired and dry. The squids were overcooked and rubbery. The hot plate vegetables looked like they consisted of prepacked vegetables bought from a supermarket and thrown onto a hotplate in a hurry. When the best dish in a restaurant is the raita....you get the idEa how bad the food is.
The prices in no Way justified the food we ate.
