We were staying at a bed and breakfast right down the street and this was recommended by the proprietor there. What a delightful suggestion. We started with a fried banana and then enjoyed the chicken roti. I have never tried this cuisine before and every...More

We always get our take away from Lalla Rookh. There is nl better one in my opinion. Checken or vega, both fantastic! Also Nice for a quick diner in their restaurant, with a Nice Parbo beer.

I discovered this place by suprise while I was visiting a friend who lived in the neighbourhood. The restaurant looked so lovely from the outside, and the smell was so good that I was urged to go in and try. It was my first time...More

We tasted only the surinamese dishes and they were great, big and cheap. We have been there twice. One small Roti is enough for the whole dinner, I suggest the lamb one. Negative point: they don`t serve tap water so with this spicy food you...More
