More a hole in the wall than a restaurant, particularly according to western standards. Having said that, this very friendly restaurant served us the most delicious curries and dhaal. Despite the fact that it caters mostly to the local community, the owner spoke enough English to make herself understood. Be mindful that it closes fairly early in the evening. Very... More

If you are not scared off by its appearance, this tiny restaurant offers great food. A decent address.

Got there at 6pm for dinner, no byarani rice, no vegetable curry and a shocked look from the staff. All they had were two dishes. We walked straight out. Might be good but don't bother going late in the day. We found a delicious place on the water with a huge variety.

I came here twice, once dinner once lunch. It's a very small restaurant, easy to miss since the English name can only be seen from one direction of the road (look lower for a green sign). I would recommend this restaurant especially for lunch, where they have nice bryani rice (was finished at dinner) and seemingly more choice than for... More

Really nice and delicious food. I recommend Chicken curry (cook with mango pickel). Samba is really good taste.

We were a bit sceptic at the beginning, but left the place overwhelmed (and over-fed!). The food was fantastic, fresh baked naan, best dhaal we ever tasted (even better than in india!). But the best thing about the place is the lovely owner, he was so welcoming and the second we finished our plate he came to serve us more,... More

The food was great. We had Biryani and chicken and of course the usual pot of endless tea. The meal also came with soup. Not spicy and large servings.

Worth the Walk. It took a little bit to find it, but it was delicious. The have great vegetarian food. The cost for the two of us was a whopping $2.50. There is another Indian restaurant down on the main drag by the water, but I thought Mi Cho was better.

We arrived about 2 PM starved and parched. The owner was careful to convey which dishes were spicy and which less so. Chicken with mango pickle-yum. We were also given delicately flavored soup. When I finished my bowl, she brought me another! We were too late for biryani but our driver was clearly checking it out so he could return... More

Very cheap- our meal cost us 1600K for two- but the curries weren't stand out. It's easy to find because since being recommended in the lonely planet everyone points tourists in its direction.
