A friendly local couple steered us to this wonderful cozy place. We shared broccoli-bacon soup, naan bread, and a Mexican flavored chicken salad sandwich. The food was awesome, and the waitresses friendly. Excellent choices for tea. A high point of our rainy day in Prince...More

I had the breakfast and it was good....egg cooked perfectly....bacon crisp....hash browns excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was clean and priced reasonably. The menu had a great variety too.

A grilled cheese may seem like a simple thing, right? Not here, the triple grilled cheese is un-freakin'-real. I had them add ham, and it was honestly probably the best grilled cheese I've ever had. Their soups, salads, burgers, and crepes have yet to disappoint...More

As with all East Indian food, preparation time is longer than with other cuisines and the dishes are spicy. But they do offer regular items as well (sandwiches, FF's) so there is something here for everyone. Service is a bit hit and miss. Once they...More

A casual cafe nestled in the Ocean Centre Mall. It offers excellent drip coffee and a good selection of traditional breakfasts. It is very popular with the locals & the lunch menu has an interesting selection of Indian food. Friendly staff! Not open for dinner.

Had a most delicious grilled cheese and fries here. The menu is varied: from old classics (as I enjoyed) to lots of delicious Indian inspired dishes. The soup is homemade and excellent. Prices are comparable. Service is friendly and efficient. A new Prince Rupert favourite

always good I like to eat there once a week for lunch and it is usually busy then so I like to go just before 12:00. They also do catering for wedding and I have had the food there and it was also great.

I love this place. Food is made fresh daily; very flavourful. They'll even spice your meal to your preference - mild to spicy hot. Enjoy real Indian cuisine. Small, quaint room. Excellent service. Reasonable pricing.
