We went to the restaurant on the first floor. It had a good selection and a nice ambience as well. Everything we ordered was tasty especially the Dahi Ke Kebab and the Oreo Shake. We went down to the bakery and had a Thandai icecream which was quite unusual.

The pizza was really quite good and the curry fish also good. The Chicken Kiev was a bit different with the chicken being deep fried. One of the very few places in India that serves expresso coffee.
