The price they advertise at the door is nothing like the price on your bill. When you ask to speak to the manager he is not available.

Been there for breakfast. Nothing special, Rottis and a fruit plattern, black tea. Taste was ok but nothing very good or surprising. Therefore we think the prices are a little bit to high. So: its ok but you can prefer other places

Staff attitude could do with improvement. Took time. Steaks were bad. So was the non-veg platter. We wasted the meat in the platter. Their meals was better option. Overall too pricey for the meal laid out..
