Went to this restaurant plenty of times with my family and friends and it really deserves a review. This restaurant does excellent Indian cuisine and has beautiful views of Xemxija bay both during day and night. Ideal for family meals and for couples. They have also children's menu which not many Asian/indian restaurants have. The prices are very reasonable too.
