it may not be obvious on the menu but do try the banana leaf curry. It is simple Indian food with a piece of banana leaf put in front of you and a portion of rice with three vegetarian curries on it. Your choice to eat with your fingers or a spoon and fork. Try a tosssai if you're still hungry.

Forget about what it looks like. Just get in there and order yourself some truly superb food. I ordered a vegetarian meal. Half a dozen different dishes. Served on a banana leaf. With rice and bread to mop up the sauces. It was delicious. All washed down with a glass of milky iced Milo.

By the corner at Lebuh Penang..where it operates..morning business could be packed with customers...the regulars from nearby offices...or those who know where it stands. From Naan to curried dishes with rice...sweeten sweets for sweet tooth...one could choose. As it was close to Little India...walk to where one could buy either gold..sarees..jewelleries...or sumptious Indian food. Nearby interactive museums...temples...money changers ...budget hotels offer their services. By expending the restaurants throughout...you could also go to Tanjung Bunga to savor.

This place doesn't look much on the outside, but once inside, it opens out into a large dining hall. Food was recommended by staff. Our meal was great - and meals on neighbouring tables also looked good. Just the right amount of spice in the curry. Definitely worth a visit.

We'd visited here when we were last in George Town 3 years ago and as it was so good we thought we'd see if our memories were accurate. As far as the food is concerned it's still very good - we had vegetable pakora, a mushroom dish and aloo gobi, with plain rice. The pakora was excellent and the other 2 dishes extremely good. The only issue I have with the restaurant is the service - evident the servers didn't attend charm school and they must all have problems with their teeth as none deemed it appropriate for us to see their pearly whites in a smile. For that they go from being excellent to merely very good. Bit of a shame really. Still worth the visit for the food though and as it's the reason for being there - still recommended.
