The ambience was nice. I had some keema pau... More

Had a opportunity to dine with family to celebrate bday of my nephew. We opted for set menu. The starters were quite good with nice varieties. The drink was interesting. They offered 4-5 curries which were all well done. Overall a visit worth remembering.

Eat here on a night when you feel like staying in at the hotel. Superb meal. We did the veg and non-veg tasting menu, generous portions, well sequenced, impeccable service. Was part of a relatively large group, 7 of us in total. A real gem of a restaurant. And a pleasant surprise for a foodie from NYC.

Liked : The ambiance Disliked: The food was pretty average. It was not a "thali", rather an assortment of dishes in a actual thali :)
