I ate their South Indian food every day for a week, the best I’ve had outside of South India (which I’ve traveled and eaten extensively) and Malaysia. Highly recommended!! Friendly staff as well, I have no complaints.

Food came out cold, a little tasteless and overall a bit disappointing. Prices weren’t overly cheap and the restaurant had cockroaches all over the walls as well. I know they are part of city life but I’d rather not have one eyeing up my chicken...More
