Excellent roti, tosai, dahl and condiments. Good service. Fresh, clean and central! Roti telur (egg) is a favourite as is the pisang (banana) roti. Kopi not as good as others in Melaka, but the Marsala tea was tops!

The restaurant is centrally located near the tourist area. We tried string hoppers, rava dosai and masala tea. The staff member was extremely courteous and the service was pretty quick. Quality of the food was excellent and our first experience was pleasant.
