Had dinner here one night, opted for Indian meal as that seems the specialty as well as a favourite of mine. The decor is basic but suitable for the area, an open cafe style. Service was prompt and efficient. I had a 'spicy potato' curry which was excellent comprising potato, semi-caramelised onion with a spicy curry sauce; much better than... More

My personal favourite was the tadka daal with extra chopped green chillies on the sides by butter naan! After the meal me and my partner sat down to enjoy their... More

Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in Batu Ferringhi. The food and service were fantastic and it was well priced. If you have fussy eaters it is suitable as they also offer Western Food. Be aware that map location is wrong and it is across from The Bayview Hotel.

I visited this restaurant twice and enjoyed both meals. I only had the more mild curries butter chicken and korma with condiments but there is a good selection of spicier/hotter curries as well as grills. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty, much better than food served from bain-maries at Indian diners back home. Perhaps it is the locality... More

We make this place our first stop after we check into the Bayview and the food has never failed us yet. My husband has grilled fish fillet with lemon butter sauce and I always have Char Kway Teow, service is always good and the staff are very welcoming and polite......give this place a try

Fresh fish tandoori. Lovely fish. Lovely price. You like pizza? No problem. Also nice. Staff is friendly. A beer is not on the menu, but a nice, cold Tiger arrives if you ask for it.
