We went to this restaurant just driving and looking for a place to dine. Very friendly people. Food was delicious. Although we are not from the area we certainly go back when we are in the neighborhood.

Nice cosy little restaurant, with a good selection of dishes. Particularly liked the goat curry, and the satay entree. All the serving sizes were more than adequate. Annoyed to have to pay for water though when we were already buying meals and wine.
