My kids insisted to visit here as they heard about this restaurant. Sure decoration is good with jungle environment. Ambiance was nice. Kids were happy to see. They serve north Indian and Bengali food. Food quality we found average and price wise expensive.

The restaurant had a jungle theme which not only included the decor and sound but the waiters were dressed accordingly. Food was promptly served . We specially enjoyed the " kadhahi jhinga" which were succulent prawns in a very nice freshly ground coriander flavoured gravy with masala kulcha. The desert was unfortunately not up to the mark. Good place for... More

We went there with our family for a Poila Baisakh Dinner. Food was awesome and variety was great. There was something for everyone. Lots of starters and desert. Mutton Biriyani was to die for. Only downside is that the ice creams were totally melted and too soft.

we had dinner at this place on a week day (wednesday) so the restaurant was almost empty and service was a bit personalised. this is a jungle themed restaurant with very dark interiors. one problem with this is that you are not sure what you are eating! Drinks were ok and food was good. the tandoori fish was very good.... More

It was an excellent experience when myself with my family had a buffet lunch in the machaan. My table was booked and no hassle to get there directly. right from the soups to the dessert it was awesome. The waiters are too much cordial to serve. I would like to have lunch there again very soon....
