Had dinner there where the executive chef Pappu Singh and the restaurant host Sapan put together a special three course meal with amazing starters , a main course with three dishes with appam and paratha and a dessert. Combining authenticity and experiment is not easy . Chef Pappu Singh aces it . Must visit
