Food was tasty however, but it sucked having to walk back into the restaurant to find a staff member... More

We ate butter chicken there, it was great! I can tell because I lived in India. Also nice because children can swim in the pool.

I was in Pesona at night, we stayed in, because when we passed by, it was almost full, and It looked really cool. The food was amazing and super tasty, after we had some cocktails and sheesha, the best I tried on the Island, for a really reasonable price. The downside, you may become addicted

Setting is good, staff was disappointing though. Waitresses didn't know whether we had ordered or not, and asked whether we could pay already after only ordering a beer because she would go home soon. Still don't know why but I paid the beers and left to get dinner somewhere else.

Yes for me it's a pleasant surprise. I am a Indian & also 100% vegetarian, so to get Indian Veg food at such a remote place was real big surprise. I must thank Owner of this Restaurant Shri Sandeesh to keep India Alive at such a far far place from India. More over not many Indian people visit Gili- Travangan... More

Super Indian dishes. Big quantities. Amazing nan breads. Ate lunch and breakfast here during stay and both were great. Service slow but not unusual on this little island.

I am a big fan of Indian food and as a world traveler I make it my mission to find great Indian food wherever I go. The food here is top notch and the restaurant is not to be missed while on Gili T. The only thing I would say needs to improve a little is the service but when... More
