People who have a lot of idle time must visit this place. Over hyped and definitely over priced. we reached there and saw the place. Except the ambiance, which is nature itself, nothing else was nice. rude vallet, arrogant hosts, bad and late service and food not upto the mark. 3 of us ended up paying close to 4 grand... More

The place is a great concept especially because the family that owns the place has preserved a farm amonsgt rampant urbanisation around it. The have great ideals and the restaurant is great but the rooms could be much better. It is a great concept but the execution could be su much better. But hats off to them for trying.

The farm is a brilliant place to stay with a family. We stayed with our three children and had a blast. There was always plenty to do in a safe and stimulating environment. The staff were incredibly attentive to our needs and we instantly felt part of a small community. There was always something to watch, something to do, a... More

[crossposted from zomato] The rating is as much for the experience as for the food. The food was excellent and we tend to be critical of outside food in general. But the point is, this place is, literally, a farm, and the owners are happy to show you around. We saw their (free-range) chickens, their buffaloes, their turkeys, their crops... More

The Farm is a very good place for a family outing within city where you can easily spend 4-5 hours in a relaxed green atmosphere. It would be a very good attraction for children and particularly small toddlers who would have not got a chance to see Chickens, Roosters, Buffalo`s in person and very close. They have horses aswell and... More
