We were four of us from Singapore who were staying opposite at The Flamingo Valley. We decided to go for some food at the restaurant and try it out. I was amazed at the choices they had n had difficulty choosing, to my amazement the number of Europeans eating here was unbelievable. That made us to go there as it... More

My daughter and I were staying in Batu Ferenghi while she made her Thai visa run. Her friend had highly recommended this restaurant, so even though it was a cab ride away, we got a Grab Cab and made the trek. SO worth it. The dosa masala we ordered was amazing and we had tandoori lamb with naan -YUM!! We... More

A relaxed restaurant at the side of the road. It was a bit busy when we arrived but still plenty of tables were free. The staff were friendly and attentive and helpful with the menu. There is a lot of choice. The food arrived quickly and tasted very nice! It was a bit spicy but not too much.

We ordered take out so this review doesn't include comments on the service. The restaurant is only a 10 minute walk from where we were staying so it was still hot when we started to eat. The menu includes Chinese and Malay dishes but we stuck with Indian only. The plain and garlic naan were tasty, but the portion size... More

The staff didn't seem very interested. Food was tasty. The prawn curry and dosa were good. The thali didn't have too many side dishes. Taste was good but variety would be nice. They don't serve alcohol. We were seated immediate but had to keep looking out to see if staff would attend to us. They were not very proactive. The... More

Famous Indian restaurant in Penang apparently. We weren't disappointed. There's a vast menu ...I'm sure everything would be lovely as our meal was. Highly recommended

Food is very reasonably priced and service is ok. However I had the best Butter Chicken I have ever eaten here and came back a second time to show a friend how good it was. Skip the Asian menu and stick with the Indian food on offer as it really is an Indian restaurant and the Nasi Goreng I had... More
