1. Kumar's

If you're craving Indian food, and I mean, GOOD Indian food, you won't be disappointed by Kumar's. They have one of the best fish head curries in town and their naans are toasted to perfection.

Their chai tarik is my personal favourite, as it has the perfect ratio of tea and sweetness.
