Naan and curry served here had an Indian flavour to it. The restaurant staff were courteous and responsive.

Locals ain't getting a good sit down service but yes the tourist do. Probably to get their trip advisor ratings. But I must say the signature biriyani is worth taking their crappy service. Not recommended for hosting .
