I was recommended this restaurant as the place to go for a good curry. My friend and I, being huge indian curry lovers decided to give it a go. Once seated, it took one of the waiters 15 minutes to come over and take our order. Baring in mind, the restaurant wasn't busy as it was early on around 6pm.... More

Nice chill on the beach with shisha, good view and nice and chilled, can get extremely busy by night, but that's just part of the atmosphere

The food in this place is good, but the waiter was extremely rude and did not want to take the order as to split orders/bills. One group of four arriving and eating and hour before the second group of two person. He just left us after throwing faces at us. Contacting the manageren did not help.

We ordered onion pakoras, rice & aloo mattar. We didn't have high hopes as to the taste but were pleasantly surprised when the food served was good... More

Hi Rajputamit, Sorry to hear about your bad experience in Pesona restaurant, i can assure you that the above will be investigated thoroughly. A western manager would have been on duty in our absence and that they must have bypassed him when dealing with this issue. We hope that since you still enjoyed the food you ate here that you...

I was staying next door to this restaurant and thought I'd give it a go. I asked for the butter chicken with paneer and a naan bread. The curry was tasty and I could have been in London. I also had a cocktail which was a bit strong for my liking. Great if you want Indian food.

Nice atmosphere and great view. Prices are excl 21% tax/service. When we asked the check, we found out the waiter did not have a tab on our table and... More
