Ate here to celebrate our friends birthday, not as cheap as some restaurants but worth every penny, Seafood soup to die for and steak cooked to perfection.

You should be able to just sit back and do your own stuff here. Nothing to bother you. Ambience is nice. Evening... More

We had Breakfast Lunches and Dinners here while we stayed. Very commendable. There is evening entertainment while you enjoy your meal.

Was wary of where to eat on our trip to India but found this restaurant right on the beach. Had such nice food we went back on our last day - the prawn curry is fantastic! Very good to accommodate fussy eaters!

Oh dear we thought it would be some background music, this was ongoing throughout the dinner and we were "disturbing" when talking. It all made it weird so we left as soon as we ate up. But the food was great, a little privy but worth it!
