The spread for dinner was excellent but the pure vegetarians could hardly find anything to eat. One of the chefs said even the stuffed aloo parathas had egg. For non-vegetarians the place was a delight. Drinking water is at a premium though and is not...More

This is a great restaurant. I stayed in the hotel and unfortunately only discovered this restaurant late - otherwise I would probably have gone back several times during my stay. Had a lovely meal and the staff are attentive and helpful.
