Our driver took us (a family of four) to this restaurant for dinner. It looks very anonymous but the food is excellent and the service is really good. The garlic naan bread is to die for - don't miss it! We went back for lunch the following day and tried out some more dishes, and we give them all our... More

This little restaurant is down a lane-way and is nothing special in terms of decor or ambiance but the food is good and so is the service. My friend and I shared crab and coconut curry, paneer in a tomato gravy and butter dahl with boiled rice - all delicious. I then had a banana pancake and my friend had... More

The restaurant is a little shack down a track between some shops, but you shouldn't judge it on its appearance: my husband and I had a really lovely dinner here, and it was very reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful with suggestions and portions were very generous. We had a mixture of chicken, fish and vegetable dishes, and all... More

Off the road, down a lane and into a little bit of the known this delightful, rustic restaurant is where you will find exceptionally attentive and courteous staff. The food was fresh, especially the sea food, and cooked in a traditional manner that was incredibly tasty and at... More
