This is an established restaurant. Most of the food dishes were nice. However the bill was astronomical. I would go there only on occasions.

I love to go here whenever there is an occasion to celebrate with Indian menu on the list. My hubby would order the nandu rasam which is the whole family's favourite. I love the palak paneer as well. I heard from some friends that the Sultan of Johor loves to dine here too. The price is worth the taste you... More

I like how this restaurant has a very rustic feel. It is housed in an old bungalow which is maintained quite well and is a perfect place to entertain guests. The food is tasty as well but slightly on the pricier side.

This place looks like a 20th century 2 storey houses but renovated. You will have a different environment feeling once you are IN. With rooms having 3 to 4 tables per room downstairs and a hall upstairs... The food is delicious and made when ordered by choosing in the menu but have to wait if it is crowded especially during...
