I reGoogled with additional information and there was a minimal Google presence. It was there though (no address other than just Willow Rd).
For some reason low on the Google radar.

Search here too. No really recent posts, but plenty of older ones. I like the goat.

I love bothi paratha from khan(never been to hyderbad house) but another animal altogether. Maybe tonight. I'm saving Cafe trinidad for a special occasion. Thanks for the help everyone!

And btw, if you go make sure to try the Ginger Beer. It's fantastic.

Of course, Cafe Trinidad has their scotch bonnet sauce on the side in a squeeze bottle that is good

If Cafe Trinidad could take their fillings, produce a roti like Penang, and marry the two, WOW that would be a great meal.
