Called in this restaurant whilst on holiday this year in Penang. Had a vegetarian meal which was very good. Worth a visit and good value. Staff very slow but food was ok.

This was always a go to place for us when visiting Penang but since our last visit the place has changed considerably and is not as good. The menu is not as extensive as it used to be and service has gone down hill. We had pineapple juice to drink which was watered down and not nice at all. After... More

Located along the main road in Batu Ferringhi, this restaurant serves Northern Indian cuisine. With open air seating as well as an air-conditioned dining area, they serve an extensive menu with some inclusions of Chinese and Malaysian cuisine. Food is average and price on the high side. The ginger tea is however very good. Service is friendly.

I was in this restaurant in 2011 and both food quality and selection were outstanding ... so I went there on my last trip but both went downhill ... and the prices went significantly up.
