    Nice ambience - suitable for private/corporate gatherings, even for couples. Ala carte options recommended as more variety and bigger portions too in comparison to their full course which was a bit overpriced imo. The sweet appam/apam manis was superb 👍

    Went on to try the Aliyaa experience …absolutely loved the starters and dessert..Top notch 🏼 The mains were good too but tasted different from the usual South Indian Malaysian food …the spices were a lil over powering ..not too sure if Sri Lankan foods are such as it was my first time savoring upon one. Nevertheless we had a great dinner session and I would recommend everyone to go ahead and try this restaurant out

    I really liked the food here! We ordered quite a few varieties and every dish was exceptionally good! The service was also decent. If you're in the area, definitely give them a try!

    Superb service and recommendations from Rupu! Highly recommend the fish cutlet starters, the crab meat curry and tiger prawn curry. For the sides, the yellow turmeric rice and the roast paan are a must try! The roast paan in particular is quite unique and goes extremely well with the curry. For dessert, we had the sweet appam and the flaming appam. The sweet appam was just the right amount of delicious, however the flaming appam was a tad bit too alcoholic for my liking. Portion sizes were not too large, which gives you the option of ordering multiple dishes. I’ll definitely be back again!

    Came for dinner, good ambience . Service is good. The crab cakes are very unique , crab meat encased in black and white sesame. Fish cutlets was average .The tampered okra was nice . The roti and samboa went well together , samboa is dried coconut fried with spices.The Dahl is one of the nicest I had thick and good flavours of spices .Highlight was the appam , I got the sweet version , nice way to end the dinner.
