Reasonable service and the usual good selection of curries. My roti was not completely cooked and that should be a minimum standard. The curry was also too salty. Love the lassie and my wife enjoyed her dosai.

Tasty Roti Chenai for an appetizer and a sampler platter which my husband and I shared. Nicely presented and delicious to taste. Great variety on the menu. Reasonably priced.
