This is such a small place it could easily be overlooked or under-rated! However, it offers a great selection of authentic food. We shared meat Samosas with raita to start. My husband had the lamb curry, jasmine rice and a roti and I had the sea food Goreng noodles. All the food was an excellent flavour and the meat very... More

Amazing atmosphere, busy and fun. Delicious food, prompt service and the staff are very friendly. Would pay to reserve a table, we were lucky to get a seating for four, just right time as people were leaving. It is a byo place we didn't bother as they have a good selection of drinks available.

At first expecting the "Malaysian" influence to be more "Chinese" but we were pleasantly surprised at the Indian overtones. The presentation of the Dosai was impressive and the goat curry met with approval. It appears they have breached licensing laws and been forced to stop selling alcohol until the end of this week. (possibly back by Friday 13th). As with... More

We had a dinner here - noodles and goat curry, both very delicious. Not exactly the most romantic place I have been to, very limited space... Fyi they dont serve alcohol these days which surprised lot of people :-)

Partner had a lamb Dosa and was very impressed when it came, presentation was very nice and he really enjoyed this dish. I had a Chicken curry and... More

Had murtobak which had never had before a very light wrap like meal with spicy lamb. Couple of sauces included. Tasted very fresh. Chicken satay starters. Small place but steady trade. Very enjoyable.

Doesn't look like anything special from outside and the tables are very tightly packed inside (also no loo.) Food was very good, and price was very reasonable! Breads were delicious! Unfortunately the jasmine rice was already cold when it was served. Bring your own booze. Allergens are not listed on the menu and we suspect that one or more of... More

Good value, yummy food - worth a visit. The service was really quick and friendly. We had Briyani and chicken curry and both were delicious (large portions) as was the roti. Wine is well priced and generous glass. If you feel like a quick Malaysian meal, you can't go wrong.
