It was a super amazing experience for my dinner there. it was my wife's birthday and Mr. Basant (Manager) remembered it from the last visit and more surprisingly he was ready with a cake as soon as we entered the restaurant. Service can never go...wrong under Basant's watch. Even all the wait staff was super humble and attentive.More
