We came here for lunch and had ice cream afterwards. The samosas were very nice and the bara is the best I've ever had. We had a selection of curries with roti. The ice cream afterwards was delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. Would love to meet the chef someday and thank them in person :-)

I don't care what you order, it is all yummy. We had lunch there, then got take away for dinner to take back to our resort. A big meal for 3 was $27 FD. There is no AC but there are fans and ice creams sold. Lots of locals dining there make a good advertisement for the quality and price.... More

I've never eaten Indian before, but I really enjoyed the food here. The waitress was very helpful with our selection of food, as we had no idea what we were ordering and, for people who enjoy meat, this vegetarian restaurant surprised us both! Value was unbelievable F$6 each for a light lunch. Fantastic.

Unpretentious, daytime cafe in Lautoka. This was the best food I ate in my four weeks in Fiji. Authentic Southern Indian food, cheap and great. Ate here twice. 5 star recommendation and friendly service.

Found it via a recommendation in the Fiji Lonely Planet guide. The restaurant is unpretentious and I had the best two meals there in my month in Fiji.
