The restaurant is a quiet and nice place to eat in the middle of the big city. It is a very peaceful place with a lovely garden full of flowers and the food is awesome.

Another busy neighbourhood that is a center of trade
and commercial related sctivities is the famous and
popular Royapettah. Apart from being known for its
many tourist attractions, Royapettah is a favourite
shopping and entertainment check in for all budget
travelers. Popular for shops selling home fabrics,
traditional sweets, furniture and house décor, it can
be quite a delight for all those looking at packing in
