There are many options to eat both veg and non veg food. The banana leaf thali is really good and comes with unlimited rice and sambar, dal, chicken gravy and fish gravy.

I stumbled across this place and was happily welcomed by the lovely staff! Great place if travelling solo. The filled Roti was to die for, served with a selection of sauces. Lots of options for vegetarians which the staff helped me with!Thank you!

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.

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...More
