Very good, polite service and very good recommendations regarding what to have from the menu that you hadn’t tried before. Food was quickly served, but not rushed, restaurant was busy, but we did not feel neglected in any way.

We try different dishes here every time we go and are always impressed. Attentive staff who really listen to what you want. Vegetable, prawn and king prawn dishes are especially nice. The niramish side dish is wonderful.
