“Nice Setting, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The beachside setting is nice, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I found the food to be generally tasty but nothing special, particularly for the prices charged. It's worth a try, but not more than one visit per trip.

Their decoration was good but the quality of food was average!!! It really hurts when you have to pay high for average quality foods :(

“Best eating and unwinding spot in Cox's Bazar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Me and my family had three meals there and not disappointed once. Rustic ambience makes it an entirely different experience. Saw concrete drawing ever closer to the property.

“Fresh cooked foods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We has a dinner at this place and we liked their foods. It was crowded but same anywhere in bangladesh if you are visiting in high season. The other good thing they have a shisha lounge is on the premises. Staff very polite. Definitely recommended !

“Great Food but be wary of the Rats”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I always go there when I'm in Cox's Bazaar, and this time was no different. Great ambience, Quiet, Great cuisine and very hospitable waiters who are always helpful. However this time around there was a difference. I took 3 of my friends along to have a good meal, but it was mired by big sized rats running all over the place. We were a bit worried that while having our dinner the rats would brush against our feet or shoes. We had our dinner and got out of there as soon as possible. Everyone enjoyed their food, which was good no doubt, but the numerous rats was a bit scary especially their size which was humongous.
