Left most: chyau (mushrooms) @ $14
Middle: jimbu butter chicken set with bara @ $18
Right: lemon tea @ $3

We intended to come for dinner and on the day itself realised they close at 7.30pm. Luckily we made it at arnd 6+. Then they asked if it's our first time here and said the food usually takes about 20mins to be prepared. That was a nice heads up and it also implies everything is freshly made.

So we got the jimbu butter chicken set which seems to be the popular dish here. The server also kindly told us the "blackish stuff" on top is the jimbu which is a kind of herb and told us to stir in before eating. The dish was nice, close to Indian muslim kind of butter chicken but a bit lighter and less intense. Which is really great, and it goes super well with the bara, which is made from five legumes that were soaked overnight to be made into dough. The texture is almost like pancake and absorbs the curry rather well.

The chyau mushrooms is basically fried mushrooms with some other ingredients like peas and edamames and onions, etc.. The sauce is tasty but can be a bit heavy after a while.

Even the lemon tea tastes refreshing and we guess it's home made.

Overall a great meal, though a little pricey.
