Went there for lunch and the place was empty but the service was good and the food portions were huge. The food tastes good and ingredients seemed fresh however the ambience is not so great.

The place is located in area 10 a bit away from town. The food was not any special to me comparing to other cheaper options in town. Almost 10,0000 Malawi kwacha for a meal are you kidding me? Run for your money run fast!

I went there on a Monday, so rather quiet. Service was OK, deco was OK, mostly everything was OK, just OK. Indian dishes were good though, but we had a couple of indo-chinese, which were just bad. They were boring. I guess that is why...More

I've been there quite a lot of times in the last few months and neither I nor my family have gotten sick. The food is great as always
