It was too dark for my liking though the table was well-lighted. The Ravas tikka was a bit chewy, but surmai jumbo more than made up for the deficiency due to its flaky texture which practically melted in our mouth. Roti was good. The gravy of surmai jumbo was very spicy in spite of our telling the waiter to make... More

This was my 1st to the Pune outlet....had tried the Mumbai one a few years ago. Did not disappoint!!. The prawns were excellent and the helping really generous. The Mangalore and Andhra dishes do fire up the pallet. Would not recommend the north India dishes..but the prawn dishes are to die for. Overall a great fooding experience.

A total letdown! The menu is different than mumbai. The food tastes completely different and there is a stink in the restaurant. I visited both restaurants within a week of each.. Absolutely not worth the money. Have much better local options.
