First time to this restaurant. Small take away with 50 pax seating capacity. Order few local malaysian dishes Fish head curry ☆☆☆☆ Crab gravy ☆☆☆ too much of tamarind Chicken 65 ☆☆☆☆ Mutton varuval ☆☆☆☆ You will never regret with the price for the food. Service need to be improved more . Customer friendly. Overall a place to visit again

My favorite Dosa joint is Rich Maha.After work on the way home this is the spicy fix some times i use.Sri Lanka Samosa is also a quick fix.Prices are cheap and it is no Frils.You have to order at the busy counter and often have to ask for water and table to be clean,same as you do in Colombo.

Doesn't look anything flash from the outside but don't drive past. Go in and select from a range of Indian/Malay curries and related items. Pleasant staff. Modest prices. We've been there a number of times.and have recommended it to friends..

This is an amazing place which caters for both in house dining and takeaway. It is always busy. The in house dining is one of the most basic restaurant/cafe decors I have ever seen. basically a large unadorned room with a series of tables, none of which are dressed. This does not seem to deter the many locals, mainly of... More

Always a good place for authentic Indian, Sri Lanka, Malaysia spicy food. Consistently yummy, fresh, tasty and reasonably priced meals. Our favourites are dinner special with Chicken-65, egg plant and beans; mee goreng, vadai, naan or roti canai bread. Never disappointed and always satisfied after a decent meal. Would recommend as a family or friends.

Paper Tosai with their condiments, roti chanai and white rice complemented the rest well Furthermore we were provided a corner as there was 8 of us. Disappointing was the... More

Had the lunch special with fish curry, okra and egg plant curry and mee goreng which were delicious. This was a great Malaysian Indian lunch and was washed down with their tea tarik with 'kurang manis' which is less sugar.
