Because we are vegetarian/vegan, we end up quite often in Indian restaurants. On our last night in town we stayed at a small hotel nearby, and the manager there suggested Lyn's. It was a good choice and we were quite happy with our food. The young man who seated us and who was also our waiter, was very professional, polite... More

Over many years, we have taken meals in this restaurant, both lunch and dinner, and both as family meals and meals with friends. The food and service can be better than expected or not quite to the expected standard. The price? Consistently high. For me, one thing about this restaurant stands out: the lassi. So far, its lassi hasn't failed... More

Food was excellent. Lots of vegetarian options, as it is usually in Indian restaurants. Waiter asked how spicy we'd like our food, and order was made accordingly. Restaurant also serves very nice fresh juices - even of the local fruit kedondong! (Very nice taste, strong recommendation.) Service was super friendly. The meal was expensive on vegetarian Kuching standards but totally... More

It came up as number one on here but what a disappointment! We were the only two people there and they're not the happiest bunch but waiter added and forgot things on our order, the popadoms came with just a watery salsa then a prawn dish no one had ordered landed so we sent that back and the mutton dish...

Tandoori prawns were amazing, it's just a shame you don't get many for your money (as they were expensive). Overall we thought the food was good quality and well cooked so we enjoyed our meal.

This is an air conditioned restaurant with an outstanding menu. Outdoor seating available too, along a pretty street. Serves draft beer (Tiger) and also wine. Naan was a bit dull, but mutton exquisite. Good service with huge menu and custom cooked food. I liked it well enough to return tonite.
