Yamuna Indian Cuisine

Mr. Pradhan, who I assume is the owner, was very kind and even spoke Korean fluently. It turns out he's married to a Korean woman who was also there at the restaurant.

At the end of my meal as I was about to leave, the owner offered me a hot milk tea. It was tasty.

Samosa (4,000 won)

Stuffed patties of spicy potatoes and vegetables

Dal Makhahara (6,000 won)

Garlic Nan (2,500 won)

As I was about to leave the waiter (possibly owner) offered me this tasty, hot milk tea.
