Their masala tea wasn't to my liking unfortunately as I like my tea with more spices. Place is small and cramped. Crowd was good. That shows off... More

Roti canai was really good. The staff especially made fresh for us and even got us hot indian fritters for snacks. The Indian tea was pretty close. Enjoyed eating here.

This place offers a variety of South indian dishes which caters to vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The service is fast and the food prices is reasonable. However it is quitye difficult to get parking around this place.

Excellent tosai, poori, roti, idly with great chutneys and Indian coffee (dark with condensed milk). Another great suggestion from our local hosts. (Don't bother with the Nasi Lemak...plain and unexciting by comparison with the others.

When we were searching for Indian vegetarian meal options in Melaka,this restaurant was our best option for light dinner.The ambience is not very nice and it is little crowded .one major plus point is wide variety of vegetarian meal options and Very good taste of items as well

We came here on our first day we arrived in Melaka! We really fell in love with the food here! It's so awesome tasting and service excellence! We returned here the next day to have our second round of banana leaf lunch! It's yummy and we are definitely gonna recommend this place to all our family and friends! Well done

This is a south indian restaurant I stumbled across in the Little India district of Melaka. I love south indian vegetarian food and this was one of the best. I spoke with the manager afterwards and he gave me a card as my cousin who lives in singapore is thinking of visiting.
