We ate lunch here. It has a nice selection of vegitarian dishes and the food was excellent. It was cheaper than we expected considering the location on the beach front. The staff were friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our lunch here very much.

I took my wife and mother in law for dinner. Never an easy thing. But the excellent food and lovely vibe made even my mom in law fun to be with. Truly exceptional flavours. Yummy.

We had the lamb bhoona goosht and chicken murgh masala for mains which were both delicious. Only thing that let it down slightly were the popadoms... More
