Visited the restaurant after six years while on a trip to pune. No major changes but the prices have certainly sky rocketed. Enjoyed the pomp fret and the prawns

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.

I visited this restaurant with my family because we all enjoy seafood. However, the experience was a bit of a let-down. While the preparations were quite tasty, the crab soup had tiny crab shells in them, the fish in the fish curry had scales and the lasooni prawns preparation came with garlic peels. Perhaps the dim lighting was for this... More
