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.

If the Michelin Guide Rouge ever covers India this place would get 3 stars. The chef has taken familiar south Indian flavors and elevated them to a new level. Can't wait to return
