A silent gem of a restaurant

We just happened to run into this restaurant at Port Blair during our recent trip. Fresh and tasty sea food, quick and decent service, nice ambiance by the sea, hygienic, and amazingly cheap for the service provided- that is how the place could be described. It was all the more surprising to know... read more

One of the older establishments of Port Blair, located (actually, this is unfortunately, the only one) at Corbyn's Cove. Somehow, the establishment elected to have time leave it behind! Dingy, dirty, poorly kept and poorly managed. Take your own food and water when you visit Corbyn's Cove for a dip.

Being a local resident waves has always been my foremost choice of visit because of carbyn's cove beach and the sarovar portico peerless hotel. One must try the sea food and thai cuisine over here. Tough there might be some issues regarding the attached bar but no matter it gives no problem with the ambience unless your family members do.... More

I remember this place as a to go to place during my earlier visit but this time it came as a shock to find the place deserted... Not a single customer was there for dinner... Found out that it has been taken over by the tourism department and had recently reopened after renovation. Hoping that this place will reclaim its... More

Not much options, neither in food nor in drinks. Service is fine but the food is average. But being the only option there, that's what you get. Fine for a light snack.

The best thing about this place is the setting as the food is rather poor. Located right on the beach among the palm trees it offers a relaxing spot but do take care of the falling coconuts! They offer the usual Indian and Chinese fare with some limited seafood options. The service is rather slow but the staff is trying... More

In simple words, these guys are misusing an ideal location for a perfect sea restaurant. First, Half of the items in the menu will not be there and once you decide to choose something from the remainder will be plain bogus. Ordered a cup of coffee which never tasted like coffee, tea had altogether a new taste. Ordered fish fried,... More

It is a glorified beach shack. Have been to better road-side stalls! Given the limited or rather no other option, this place served warm beer and greasy food. Can be avoided.

Food is good so is service, don't expect too much it's just a simple restaurant serving some basic Indian and Chinese food by the beach. The view is really amazing. It's not even very expensive.

Dont order anything in this place. If you are hungry. opt for the the hot bhajiya walas on the beach. Masala papad is value for money.
