We visited this restaurant near Denman & Robson Sts. in Vancouver last evening. And what a treat. We both had the spinach curry, one of us with lamb, the other prawns. Very tasty with large portions of lamb & prawns at about half the price...More

This place was a nice change of pace, we were quite happy to find something a little different than usual. The decor is funky, the space is small and quaint. The food was fantastic! Super tasty, and huge portions which nobody quite managed to finish....More
