The restaurant is simple but the food is full of flavour. We had vada, masala dosa, biryani and the okra curry. Probably not the most romantic restaurant in town, as the setting is quite plain, but the staff was nice and the prices very affordable.

Simple place serving good vegetarian Indian food. Very cheap, soft drinks only. Thankfully Woodlands is air conditioned, but can get very busy so it seems a bit chaotic. But if you are looking for a cool spot and good veggie food, it's a good choice.

First stop on our food tour and we really didn’t want to leave. We sampled many great foods. Their breads were phenomenal. Staff were attentive and helpful. We will definitely return, their menu is vast.
