Had a great lunch here and bought spices to take home. Definitely worth a visit. Within walking distance from the bus stop and locals are very helpful with giving directions. Best place to get your fruits etc as supermarkets are very expensive.

Great place to walk around and look. The local people are nice and friendly. They answer all the questions you have to anything you ask. They don't chase you around which I enjoy.
