Best butter chicken I've ever tasted

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

When we were getting ready to say goodbye to our daughter recently we took her out for lunch to the Oyster Shell. The food was fresh, the service courteous and quick. A great overall experience.

I hated the decor as soon as I went into the restaurant. The outside definitely needs a landscape artist. The interior is a mish-mash of styles and materials. There is no theme and it does not blend into the building. The tables and chairs look like they have seen better days - I would use them as firewood. For the... More

Nice atmosphere, plenty of locals to talk and watch sport with. Shisha lounge if that is your thing, owners always about to greet you and appreciate your custom.
