I love this place. What is refreshing is that the service and the quality of the food is always consistent and great. We visit this place at least once a week. The food and endless cups of tea make this place a winner for us.

This is a very modest café which caters, first ands foremost, to the Ismaili community. That said, the food is good and prepared to order. They sell chicken as well as beef samosas. Staff is cheery and care about both your experience and the food....More
