Food here is great ! Had to return for the second time. Had the prawns in garlic and chicken curry. Both delicious and portions are abundant. Well worth it!

We ate here a lot when we were diving and came back to eat even when we weren't. Great views over the bay. Nice place to kick back and relax after a tough day scuba diving. Staff very helpful and attentive. Friendly place

Came here hoping for Persian food from the name - but they just had the usual pizza/pasta menu + shisha pipes. The pizza was good though!

Good place to relax and chill. The food was good but Warning...the jalapeño cheese stick are hotter then you expect. And if your expecting an Indian restaurant it's not.

The view during sunset is excellent with a nice Shisha on top of the table. Staffs are friendly and always smiling. Try their... More
