The ambiance is great. The food preparation was slow so do not go there ravenous. My order was refreshed when I complained that there was not enough gravy with the rice. This I liked. The desserts are good in general.

Good, tasty food. We went there based on previous good reviews and we were not disappointed. It's a small place with multi cuisine, many items. Only down side was we had to wait for about 25mins to get our order.
