So after being back home in London over the summer I've ventured back to Cardiff for my second year of University. After packing the car, travelling and unpacking everything again, food - and lots of it - was very much in order.
Just down the road from my new house is the Kama Lounge, Noodle Bar. I've been here a few times now and think it deserves a little accolade for being a damn good place to get hefty but extremely tasty portions of rice or noddle dishes for a fiver.
The food isn't stodgy like your average take-away joint which is handy because these guys also do home deliveries/take away.
You can pick and choose the ingredients, sauces, type of rice or noodles or get set boxes.
In particular the Schezeun noodles, Singapore noodles and Thai green curry rice dishes are worth ordering.

The side dishes are also quite large so it's best to share one portion. The tempura vegetables were well cooked and accompanied by a thin sweet chili sauce.
The decor inside the bar-come-restaurant is a bit hodge-podge-charm and the staff are laid back but very helpful. I would say that it is more often than not visited by students who would rather avoid the fast food outlets littering the streets of Cathays but it's perfectly suitable for non students who like a good meal too.
