Thoroughly enjoyed the French fries after eating curries & Dahl for a number of weeks. The drinks were icy cold and we felt safe eating here.

Its located in groud floor of building where hotel vivek is located. Big space is avilable where large number of people can sit at same time. Ambiance was nice and crowd was also good. Service is slow which need improvement. Food is worth of money.

This place was introduced to me by a friend as a very cult and secretive outlet.. Sometimes when you are lost you do not look for a road which is smooth but you just want to reach where you were heading to.. Sam's cafe will remind you of a place which is grounded, a place where you can ponder over... More

Me and my 3 friends visited the place for lunch but realize our mistake. As the service,staff and Sam's were not the good choice. Not at all value for money and staff is so arrogant that you end up spoiling your mood..

One can find hippie enjoying solo or in groups, along with locals. Comfortable place to enjoy drinks with appetizers. We started with an appetizer (Salt & Pepper Vegetables) followed with more Indian starters Barrah Kabab which was a bit under cooked, yet tasted good. Chilly chicken has big chucks of chicken pieces was not up-to the mark. Our server was... More
