Good food, but little but costly

The food quality has improved much as compared to the time it started operation at City Center. Well built and managed. Service is good. Cost, a little bit high, but it is manageable.

I ate here four time during my week long stay at the Sea Cliff Hotel. The Indian food was awesome. They have a very large selection of Indian and Chinese meals and the meals I had were excellent and reasonably priced.

Have dined at their Sea Cliff outlet a couple of times in the past few months. Excellent fare in Indian and Indo Chinese cuisine . Impeccable service. Great ambience for people who like seating outdoors, though, they do have an air conditioned room too. Dont miss the succulent Tandoori prawns and flavorsome Rogan Gosht.

We visited at their City Center Branch, food items were overpriced and taste is not upto Mark. It is in clean and cool atmosphere, but not worth the eatables, as per the price. Nearby restaurants offer much better quality at lower prices.

It is always my policy that I eat outside the Hotel every evening I am free. this Thursday evening after a busy day I took a taxi and the driver took me to this place. I like fish so I ordered sea food, served with chips! It was great! Service was good.
