Little India, with it's market streets full of restaurants serving adaptations of authentic dishes from India, as well as original creations inspired by the diverse food culture of Malaysia, is a place not to miss when visiting Georgetown, and I loved this Indian restaurant.

Little more than a shed with long wooden tables and the sound of battling, belligerent cats outside we were able to appreciate superb Indian cuisine and great service.

No frills but, for authenticity, possibly just what you're looking for.

What i ate was okay, good flavour..not really the sweet and creamy chicken korma i was hoping for but it tasted nice. Only the chicken texture was a bit strange. But what I really didn't like was that I didn't feel welcome as a tourist. Being a girl and being there alone made me feel uncomfortable. Like they were annoyed by just another tourist in shorts.

Real Indian food, with a great variety of choices, all lacto-vegetarians (no eggs, no fish, no meet products). Very delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Must visit for all those craving for fulfilling south indian meal in penang. Kindly dont be mislead by few pics over here that shows the banner depicting pure vegetarian. This restaurant serves non vegetarian food and that too extremely tasty. visited both the days we were in penang and loved the food alot. Highly recommended specially for Indians who have a taste for it.

Local place with good indian food.
But too much spicy in spite of the request. Cheese nan was a little bit poor in cheese and they choose the flavor of ice cream for us.
