Food is ok and wide range but service is awful. You'll wait ages to be seen, waiter is rude and unhelpful. A frustrating experience which ​detracts from dining at this restaurant.

The claypot briani is good. However, it is too warm to sit for long to enjoy the meal. A lower sun shade would help to cool the interior.

This is where I go to when I want to eat Indian food in Georgetown. I love the tandoori and the biryani. They are open 24 hours but not all food is available, so sometimes I can't have my biryani at early in the morning, just chapati. In terms of service, overall the service is good, although there was one... More

Great Food, friendly service. The tandoori chicken was just right: not too spicy just right. We also had chicken Bryani which was delicious! We Will come back again, definitely. Price and quality were absolutely fine.

We had chicken tikka, aloo gobhi, naan and biryani. It was busy, confusing about how to order and staff were rushed to take orders and then slow to serve. However UK£8 for all that was worth the wait. Food was tasty and portions plentiful.

This is a must try! It is located near the Masjid Kapitan Keling. Patroned by locals and tourists including foreigners from Europe, Japan etc. The food is so good sometimes you have to wait for a bit to get a place. Parking spots are also limited so it's better to park elsewhere and walk to the restaurant. Tandoori there is... More
