“Experiencing the thrill of tree house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

On may day, 01.05.2013....we went to machan....it was too late for a buffet service but they arranged it for us....and it was not done forcefully....food taste, quality were exactly accurate....and quantity was beyond one's capacity (remember we are certified human-sharks hehehe)...even we requested to take back few dishes untouched....but they humbly requested to get a glimpse of those dishes...and practically they were awesome....desserts were really mouthwatering...and there was always a treatment like eating at home. Experience was superbo....

“Gimmick does not work....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Stale food....recycled food for buffet, I thought....may be wrong. Ask me more...I went to the kolkata outfit. It is hard to know for which,one is writing the review for.... don't play the tricks. Look at the adjoining map... where is it? Trying to confuse the consumer, ya?

“Gimmick does not work....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Food was stale and it seemed that it was recycled. There was not even an effort.... how could there be a 'Thai' entree without ' rice'? Staff, even though very nice, was clueless about the 'table setting'. For the price of all the roars and rumbles, it was a cheap show.

“Piece of rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The restaurant emulates a jungle and hence is extremely dark.
Food is below ordinary and is extremely spicy. Last heard, the owners were planning to shut it down. Check before going..

“biggest dissapointment of 2012”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

very poor food with no taste and food served tasted the same. the buffet is even worse. kebabs served are cold and it is clearly not worth the money charged. the artificial forest ambiance looks and sounds fake .
