“Loved this meal so much!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Eating from a banana leaf is a new one for me and as the only westerners in here we took a little time watching what everyone else was ordering. By the time we ordered we just went mad wanting to try everything and we were not disappointed by anything that came (fish dishes, chicken tandoori, mushroom curry, garlic chicken, vegetable rice, parathas, naan's)! The service was pretty good and they told us they sold beer when actually they don;t - they sent someone out to buy Tiger's especially for us! It was truly one of the best curries I have ever eaten anywhere - so fresh and tasty. I wish I could pop in here on a regular basis - my local curry establishment is just not going to cut it any more :-(

“Tasty treats and sights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Great India food!! We went everyday of our trip, We had the waiter order our breakfast and he returned with delectable roti canai and dips.
The next day we returned to sample their meat dishes, on display when you walk in. Don't be afraid to ask what everything is. Meals served on banana leafs. Be sure to try a pistachio dessert on your way out! You can take your leftovers to go as well.

“Food good but very tightly packed in”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

This place has excellent food but is really hard to move around in. If you are claustrophobic this is not for you.

I would otherwise give a higher rating because of the space.

“Best Indian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Just spent 2 weeks in Malaysia and this was by far the best meal we had. We also took a local friends who had never eaten here before and they were also impressed. Good street food style restaurant.

Quick, efficient service, excellent food made right next to us and so cheap. Would love to go back here.
