Had a gr8 time , really full of greenery, peaceful n very comforting . Kids friendly and very secure. Only the bad part is the bumpy road of 5 to 6 kms which you will forget after getting the hospitality.

We were on our way to Sravasti after visiting Kapilvatsu holy site. Our driver brought us to this excellent place for lunch. With courteous staff, great food and beautiful garden, I would strongly recommend this place for lunch or tea. The price is very reasonable.
