Excellent hosts Shanmu and Manoj. Felt like we were in a Harry Potter Movie. Quaint, personal, very romantic. The menu is well curated, with local ingredients. The menu is international and there is a lot to chose from. Highly recommend this 7 course delight.

Fabulous food in quaint old railway carriage. The Sous chef comes and takes your orders and the ticket conductor waits tables. Make sure to come hungry as it’s 7 courses! Totally worth it!
