Was recommended by hotel staff to try this restaurant and found to be worth the visit. Nice ambience and staffs. Had the best fish head curry I ever had. Would definitely will visit again. The price slightly expensive but its worth the spend.

Consider 1 of the few nice Indian food available to JB town area which serving nice indian food. The only drawback it's the location which a bit difficult to access as once you missed the exit you may need to make an u-turn in order to reach. Beside the location everything consider ok

I like how this restaurant has a very rustic feel. It is housed in an old bungalow which is maintained quite well and is a perfect place to entertain guests. The food is tasty as well but slightly on the pricier side.
