We loved this restaurant. Very tasty food, with a nice view of the capital, and good service. We ordered vegetable curry and beef tandoor.

This is a good restaurant literally across the street from the Hyatt. The staff were relatively quick to take our order. The dosa was excellent - similar to what you would get in India. Overall a good experience.

I went there once and faced a terrible experience. I was served old rice. The plates they provided had fishy smell, not washed properly. The taste of the food was so so. But their behavior was not proper. Altogether that was a horrible experience.
