The restaurant is an extension of the temple next door, and that raised my expectations. The food is not bad, however, that is the saddest part. I was expecting it to be great.

To be honest I have no idea what the dishes were called- but I loved the variety. A spicy red bean stew, a spinach potato curry option, another cauliflower...more
