LOVED this place! The fish curry in a banana leaf was to die for. We came back and had exactly the same thing on our return from our jungle trip and it was just as amazing. In South America in general we've missed spice and...More

They don't have it on the menu, but they have a fish curry wrapped in a banana leaf that they can make vegetarian instead by doing steamed vegetables in curry in banana leaf.. We had it twice, once with the rice which was so overcooked...More
