3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I expected much better ambiance...The room can be maintained better... The furniture is old and off-color. I stayed next to the restaurant in the 7th floor, the corridors often filled with cigarette smoke, used to enter the room too. Could have been avoided. And the day I was leaving the ducts were being cleaned, there was dirt all over the... More

My last review was about Cascade Restaurant and last Sunday I landed up there again for the lunch buffet...but lo and behold, they serve only veg at lunch, no wonder its 250/- per head whereas the NV Buffet at that place is priced at 500/-. So I had no choice but to head to good old Horizon, a classy rooftop... More

One of the oldest hotels in Vizag. I fondly remember enjoying meals here as a kid also. Truly gives meaning to the phrase 'old is gold'. Had buffet at Cascade. Economical and tasty. The breakfast and lunch buffets priced 250/- and dinner 450/- (excl taxes). The dinner spread was quite good with 3 NV dishes. The veg spread was awesome... More

I stayed here for a night on a business trip. The staff are courteous and the food is fine. However, the room I was allotted looked a bit unclean. That is not due to the fact that housekeeping did not clean it, they did. The problem is all the furniture and fittings are old and need to be renovated. The... More

We dropped-in at this restaurant for 'bout an hour or so. We particularly did not go for the buffet since we weren't overly hungry and instead ordered for sea food and were pleasantly surprised by the freshness and taste of the dishes, which were reasonably priced. Loved the Prawns Chilly Garlic and Fried Okra.
