Good choice of Sri Lankan/Indian dishes, priced between 4 and 8 ringgit each. We ordered 4 dishes and it came to 22 ringgit. Service was fast, food was tasty, we will definitely go back again. Try the fresh mango juice too, it's delicious.

Despite being located on a highly transited road, the atmosphere is simple and relaxed, with a lot of space inside. Food choice is quite good also for vegetarians,

This is a casual Indian restaurant. The tandoori is available for dinner, but do not limit yourself. They have some great cafeteria style food available all day. If you are unfamiliar with Indian food, just point to what looks good. I've been back many times and have never been disappointed.

Always good for a Roti or curry. Not my favorite but it's still good. Roti Cani is my favorite. Or try some curry. Open 24/7 so ideal place to visit after the pubs close.

I gave up waiting for my food for so long I had to leave and get served quicker down the road at another restaurant. I think the management has gone wrong here because I had been going here for several years before and it was fine then. Food is ok if you are prepared to wait so long.
