Both my friend and I were amazed at the portion of this as 3 different plates were used just for this dish. I am particularly thankful that all the ingredients were segregated, including the mutton which allowed me to customise the dish to my liking - amount of sauce to put, whether to mix in the ingredients and etc. The spice level in the dish felt toned down to suit more customer's palate and the rice could have been much more aromatic. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed their mutton which was fork tender and had strong flavours. Comparing this to the biryani I had at Springleaf aeons ago, this definitely felt like a better rendition.
Overall: 8/10 (Will come back for this)

To start, I have definitely not eaten this enough to identify what makes a thosai great, but this was decent as it had a myriad of textures due to its crisp underside and edges. It was also huge - Hand placed for comparison. All the 3 sauces/curries provided were unique in their own ways and from left to right, they tasted predominantly refreshing, spicy and somewhat creamy/buttery like a highly diluted version of ghee mixed with spices. While they gave contrasting flavours to the otherwise plain tasting thosai, I felt that they were a tad too mild but still decent in their own ways. Also, the egg did not contribute to the thosai at all and would recommend one to simply get the plain version.
Overall: 7/10

Complimentary curries
- Fish curry was more tangy in flavour
- Chicken curry tasted more aromatic and loaded with spice, sweeter than the fish curry as well
Overall, both curries were equally spicy and I enjoyed the chicken curry more

La Ayam Parotta ($8.90)
- Sweet sambal taste complemented the sauce (Tasted like honey mustard) really well; Honestly, there's no need for their curry with this prata
- The sauce they added helped to keep the prata from being too dry as well
- Entire prata was really crisp on the outside and I really enjoyed this dish (Best out of the 3)

Ultimate Mini Murtabak ($8)
- Murtabak was comparably lacklustre in taste but there were good chunks of mea
- Considerable amounts of cheese
- Mushrooms could have had a more pronounced flavour to complement the entire murtabak, else I felt that you could miss out on its flavour if you were to eat random parts of the dish without looking at it
- Bits at the end were really crispy; if only that texture was consistent throughout the murtabak though
- This dish should be paired with the curries which definitely elevates it

Chocolate prata ($3)
- Essentially, tissue prata with Hershey's chocolate sauce and chocolate rainbow sprinkles as toppings
- Really crispy
- Honestly, expected more from this dish; Adding chocolate filling within the layers of the prata or using homemade chocolate sauce instead but I guess, there's a reason why they are not known for their chocolate prata
- Overall, enjoyed the prata for its texture and its sweetness but will not recommend unless you are specifically craving for some sweetness from chocolate

- Get the La Ayam Parotta ($8.90)
- Prices here are generally steeper than other prata shops but you are paying for both the brand and their unique creations
- Do not get the chocolate prata
- When coming to Springleaf, you should stick to their pratas and specialties
Price: (No ratings as products offered are distinct from other shops)
Taste: 7.5/10
Overall: 7.5/10
