He used to take care of every single thing and was just a phone call away for help. He should be rewarded for his work. > The cook and the supporting staff were also pretty good at their work....

The decor and furniture reminds you of the rural ambiance. The food is good, with local cuisine thrown in. Special mention to Shrinivas, Nitya and Anwar for being extremely helpful.... More
