A (very) Budget eatery. A local favourite and open late. There's no menu, just line up and wait your turn - in that time you can work out what you like. The chicken curry has smashed bones so be careful if you order that one!

You wouldn't expect to find an authentic Indian restaurant in Apia, and this one is as good as they get. Good prices and large servings, always leftovers to take home. Great service as well - ask Vijay or Prem if you are not sure what to order, they know the menu inside out.
