Me and my wife visited pesona restaurent, a part of pesona Resort. Before this we took a spa in pesona...the spa is facing the busy street...hustle and bustle...but therapist know their work... the pesona restaurent is rated at top for Indian vegetarian food on trip advisor. Away from India, the menu card with masala dosa was very tempting. We were... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are proud of our food and the chefs (yes, they are from Java) that have been specially trained to prepare it. As you can appreciate, someone coming from India might not find everything 100% authentic, but we are on a small island in Indonesia and taking that into consideration... More

Husband and I had a great dinner here. I had the vegetable curry not spicy and a garlic naan. He had garlic chicken and cheese naan. Food came out piping hot (which we love especially knowing it's freshly cooked) and didn't take too long to cook at all. I asked for my curry to not be spicy and it was... More

This place is always packed, so get there early if you'd like to sit on the floor and try some sheesha. Can highly recommend the double apple flavor. Have not tried the food, but it looked pretty good. It was a cool, chilled out place with a great atmosphere.

I spent my birthday here and the guy that served us as excellent. 'Uki' a trainee waiter might I add was attentive especially when we were rather unhappy with the quality of the Shisha, he took it away cleaned it and replaced it with no quarms. He wasn't pushy but did make polite conversation with us and when he explained... More

Huge variety on menu. From reading other reviews had the mixed vegetable curry and it was delicious! Although when they ask if you like it spicy...be warned! Peshwari naan was a great accompaniment. Cool setting, you can either sit at a table or more informally on mats and cushions. Yum!

They used to have good food, but not anymore. Lamb Korma was cold and sauce was awful. Service as usual you have to chase them to get anything. Too bad we really enjoyed this place I the past.

Took nearly an hour for our tandoori chicken and naan to arrive. Food tasted authentically Indian but expensive for what it is.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Tandoori dishes tend to take longer than our other curry dishes, we apologize that your waiter did not explain this to you.

A place to chilled. Lying on the sand with cushions and smoke flavoured sheesha. The Indian food is nice too. We tried the Rogan Josh, chicken tikka and garlic naan - all were very tasty. A bit pricy but worth it. Cons - staff take forever to come to you and answer your query. Pricy.

We were a party of 8 so half us got to enjoy the beautiful view of the sea while the other half were left staring at the restaurant.
