If you are new to the place and basically from India, and you dont want to try anything new, so this is the best place to have food. You will get all kind of food, Indian as well as continential and the quality is very good.

The food here takes a little long to prepare but it is worth the wait. It is fresh and perfectly balanced on flavours. The fish is cooked tp perfection and will melt in your mouth. Do try EVERYTHING with paneer (cottage cheese) on the menu - it is silky and probably some of the best paneer I have come across.

The 2 bedroom has one queen size bed,and the other room has 2 beds,making it even better when you visit the place with a couple of friends or... More

Despite the irony of not serving seafood, this hidden treat is a regularly welcomed mid-week dinner escape. Some really excellent and authentic dishes. Friendly staff. Variety of rooms to sit in (main restaurant [sometimes a bit too empty], bar, balconies, upstairs lounge areas etc). Shame the planners gave the go ahead to shove a monstrosity of a building smack bang... More

Do not use the map reference. Correct on Google maps. Do not know how to correct it, it is irritating since I know it placed wrong, but I am not allowed to do anything or report it, so I try this.

This was booked by our travel agent for a 1 night stay. Food was excellent and plenty of choice on the menu. Indian and Euporean food. The rooms in the cottages were clean and big. The complementary breakfast was also good. The stay and breakfast cost a little over $300 for 10 of us. Excellent value.

A friend and I spent an afternoon in the lounge, relaxing on the couches. We had hookah, drinks and a meal. The food was delicious but a little expensive. The hookah was inexpensive compared to the US, but it required a lot of work from the server to keep it working correctly. Cocktails are pricey and very sweet. But the... More
