Could be rated as high end typical South Indian food joint. Being part of 5 star facility they have to match standards but nontheless, liked the food and service.

Although the prices are on the higher side, the food and the ambiance of the restaurant is really nice. I had the fish curry which was absolutely fantastic and one of the finest I've ever had,

By far one of the best restaurants across India. Offering a wonderful spread of southern coastal specialities. A must try for first time (& repeat) visitors on a short stay and craving for good indian food. Prices are on the high side. Expect to pay US$ 100/pax without alcohol for a sumptuous filling 3-course meal.
