Visited with bunch of cousins. Went for the night buffet. Was very good. Good barbecued starters. Being on the coastline there was a good catch of prawns and fish in the main course. Also an exhaustive display of deserts from Payasam to ice cream.

The waiter was standing too close to my wife while taking and keeping dishes on the table. We were having dinner in the Garden restaurant.I felt uneasy on seeing this. The waiter's name is Gautam. He even brushed her shoulders once while taking plate from the table. The Food too was very normal nothing special about it. I then regretted... More

It's the perfect climate to visit, with cool breezy weather, candle light dinners under huge baniyan and bamboo trees.... even a cute area for the kids to safely play. And that's where the magic stops. Once the food arrives you will regret coming here. The food is terrible. We ordered a chicken biriyani, chicken sechwan gravy with naans and phulka,... More

We went here for a team lunch. The ambience is fine and the buffet is decent. The service was just okay and the price is a bit high compared to the food options available in the buffet.

The restaurant is on ECR road and so is a happening location. There is outdoor style seating. The menu is decent though little spicy. You can expect 350-400 per person with starters, main course and desert. Overall a decent go though not so overly tasty. But the staff is courteous, even though service is slow. We travelled in the year... More

I reached here with my friends around 1 PM without booking for buffet. We opted for buffet and started with the welcome drink. Unfortunately it was not unlimited. So we moved to starters. Prawn cocktail and nethili fish fry were the best !

Went for team lunch. Buffet menu is good. We are satisfied with the starters and the main course items. Dessert items also very good. Outside kids paly place is also maintained well. Kids can spend time and enjoy in that kids play park .

The food is really good, ask for the daal to be a bit thick. Garlic rotis are another must! Make sure you get the tables on the corner in the right, perfect setting!

Went for a team lunch. Among starters, fish tikka was the best. Main course is average, paneer item was not so good. Non veg items are decent. Dessert spread was good.

The food is good.... we went four times. But need to improve on customer service. The ambiance is really superb. You can have a really good time. Though we had a combination of 4 or 5 dishes (main & side) for non veg each time, it lacked exquisite taste in all items. Try Chinese items and some North Indian items.... More
