Stopped at this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. Very friendly staff and generous portions. We shared 2 meat dishes and rice between 4 and it was ample. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced.

We ordered 3 items to share between two of us and had plenty for take-away at the end of our meal. Six waiters in this fairly small place meant no waiting at all! The veggies were tender crisp and the spicier beef we ordered had...More
