If you are after some great local food, this is the place to be. Looks a bit dump but all that is rewarded by the great authentic dishes. Shared a plate of chicken pilau and fish biriyani and would always go back there again..

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, I took take my wife, on her birthday, there with friends. The menu promised a gastronomic feast. I immediately decided on the seafood platter. What a disappointment! Our food took ages to arrive without explanation. When it did arrive, the seafood...More
