Lovely little women owned business with a pretty, plant filled rooftop that hosts live music every weekend. The ‘Indian enchiladas’ are a little dry (we added some Dani and chutneys, which go a long way!), but the service was warm.

I've been there during the week. It's amazingly nice place! After rummaging a bit in the shop downstairs I ended up in the rooftop Café and had some food (European Thali) and a drink. The women there are more than friendly. The atmosphere is chilling....More

A lovely evening from 8 to 10 listening to two great jazz musicians play along with great vegetarian food (Bhaijis were historic) and a few glasses of wine. A pleasure and highly recommended.

Read about this in one of the travel magazines and decided to make a visit. Food options are very less. Crepes were not upto the mark. Juices were fresh though. Not worth a visit in my opinion.

Very homely store with many curated items. Everything is organic or homemade. On the roof top is a quiet restaurant bar with beer and wine, alongwith a small selection of food available. At times they have some music events. Light on the pocket.

If your someone who's new to jazz, you would actually fall in love with it if you experience it here! Very subtle and light ambience with great live music!! May not be a very good choice for food though...
