The inside is a bit gloomy & furniture could get an upgrade, the sofas sink too low, but when the food is... More

The silverware, the ambiance and the soft sound of the waterfalls make the experience worth remembering. The food is mouth watering and delicious to the hilt.

My favorite dishes - lachha paratha and maa ki dal were just terrible. The lachha paratha was extremely greasy (pouring ghee) and the dal was plain tasteless. The masala channa... More

Pricey by local standards and approaching what you now pay in SE England. Barbecued local fish speciality very tasty, but far too little whereas more straightforward chicken dishes and rice plentiful. Overall... More
