Top lunch in city resto :)

I was there with friends on a weekday. Tip is to always book before you go since we were told it's always full.. And we understood why :) We were seated in lower deck. Nice cozy ambience with water feature. There was a buffet with a variety of salads and we had many choices for the main course... read more

Went there after a meeting and enjoyed a very nice curry, excellent service, very central location in the middle of the business area of Port Louis. The restaurant is located in an old building, full of history, nice wooden floors and antiques furniture.

I had a business lunch on a Monday and it was relatively quiet. The restaurant is in the heart of the banking district of Port Louis. It is on 2 floors. We ordered a la carte and I tried a local seafood dish, which was very good. The portion sizes are large. The fresh orange juice was also good.

The buffet was offering limited choice, salad, 3 mains (fish curry, chicken Chinese style, chicken with mushrooms) 3 vegetables but only 2 were available, and desert. Not impressive for 1060 MRU for two of us. We had a look at the... More

I am a vegetarian so my review will be restricted to veg food and desserts. This place has two options A la carte and buffet. I have mostly gone for buffet as I get variety (when you compare it with other restaurants) in veg food. You get Nan (Indian flat bread), Salads, Chilly (Mauritius signature chutney), Pickles, Coconut Chutney, Dal/Kidney... More

Koming here since five years we never were dissapointed, and always got very fresh fish, vegetables, served by utmost gentle personel. The price was pritty ok for Mauritius. If you are in Port-Louis, it is easy to find and worthwhile!

I have come here for a number of business lunches and the food has always been served quickly, well presented and very tasty. Will be back here for sure in the future and a place certainly to visit if you need a business lunch..
