Food average, Service not much better

Service is generally bad in the Seychelles. So do not have expectations that you will be served by smiling waiters who are eager to please. Food was average and on the pricey side

We had such a lovely meal here. The prices are quit high but it's right on the beach so the fantastic food and view makes up for it.

Their butter chicken and butter naan along with their biryani is so rich and delicious! Definitely worth going to if you want to spice up your dinner :)

well the organisation of the place is not too bad it is connected to the coral strand hotel. The service is quite good. it is served as small portion of a list of dishes of your choice typically Indian flavour. dinner for two or one is sufficent food. The price of the food is satisfactory about 12 euros per dish.... More

Having previously lived in a Malaysia I am use to good Indian food. This place missed the mark and left me in gastrointestinal distress. I won't be back.

The food was average for the Indian Cuisine. The service was quick and the staff was helpful. We were there for few drinks and some starters. As we had a kid they did help out in making something specific for the kid.

Restaurant is on the beau vallon beach next to coral strands hotel. The indian cuisine offered is good and relates to the indian taste.

Better to sit inside the premises as tables... More
