We visited this restaurant for lunch on a weekday. There were a few people visiting like us, but it was not full. Extensive menu. Food was hot and absolutely delicious. Staff were attentive without being obtrusive. A great restaurant.

Had two mains and their home made roti bread - awesome. Shrimp fried noodles and chicken/veg/chili both medium spicy. Couldn't have had better anywhere. Fresh, hot and tasty. The staff were very attentive and eager to give advise or help. Medium prices. Highly recommend.
