This place has been recommended by a dutch friend. We had a great experience there. The staff is very friendly and the translated the menu for us. Don't forget to try their traditional soda "Fernandes". Food was great also with great flavor. Highly recommended.

Skip Ram's or any other restaurant, but go straight to Lalla if you want to have Hindostani (Suriname Indian) food. Good taste and reasonable portions. But change clothes after visiting ;)
