Had a business lunch there towards the end of February 2018. The good is good, just not great. The variety is huge and the food comes out hot and relatively quick. The portions are really large. Would probably go there again.

This restaurant is amazing, the food and the service were excellent. The house which has been turned into this amazing restaurant is over 90 years old, much of the original decor has been preserved. Many celebrities including the Sultan have eaten at this restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy high, quality authentic Indian food.

We came here for lunch and enjoyed the food very much. The food was delicious and the presentation was excellent. The chicken biriyani and butter chicken were very tasty.

The place was a little old but very clean and pleasant.

The service overall was very good too.

I recommend going here by car or uber, it's kind of out of the way from everything else. Food was delicious, I had a nice dinner for two. I would say the deco was pretty nice, especially the exterior, and basically it was a nice quiet dinner, I don't even remember if they played any music, it must've been very soft. I would come back again if I was in Johor.

I went here with two colleagues and loved it. The food was of excellent quality and very well cooked. The taste was excellent as well as the freshness of the ingredients.

We had dinner outside and could see the cooks working with gloves on, which I liked.

I did not go inside except for the washroom; that can definitely use an upgrade. Too dark, too smirky, too much rural India. Please upgrade that and I will continue to come back.
