Good service and hospitality. Food was really good. Should try the set meals. Pepper prawn was so soft and delicious. Tried the quail egg sambal and was different from usual in restaurants. They even provide desserts with the set meals.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
