The restaurant has been decorated to a very high standard and great care is taken in the preparation of the food and the service of the dishes. The location, perched on a cliff edge provides a very dramatic backdrop.

I could why this place is ranked so highly- the restaurant it self has character and overlooks the ocean. That said, we got takeout and were disappointed. The chicken panang had more vegetables than chicken (never seen this before). The kitchen swapped spiciness requests so...mine came out spicy when it should've been mild and the Mrs was mild when should've been spicy (a different dish). The na'an was undercooked and doughy. Neither disposable silverware nor plates were offered. Part of the problem is that the prices don't change for takeout, so one is paying an inflated rate for the scenic vista and ambiance, but not getting the benefit thereof when taking food away (and the food isn't worth that high cost when there are other Indian / Thai restaurants that are less expensive on the island).More

Have eaten in and had takeaway from here more than anywhere else on the island over 6 months! Both their Thai and Indian menus are both amazing every time! Service when you eat in is excellent and the setting is beautiful. Portions are big.

The location of this restaurant is STUNNING, right on the water with uninterrupted views. We went for mainly Indian food rather than Thai, was all very nice, the peshwari naan was particularly good. It is a little on the expensive side so not one we...would go to often, which is a shame as we are yet to find another decent Indian restaurant.More

Our second visit and both have been great, good cocktails and impressive Thai & Indian cuisine - both times we couldn't eat everything and they kindly wrapped up the remainder for us to take away. We had a great table with ocean views. Highly Recommended.

Food was good but portions are somewhat small. View and atmosphere are excellent. Great place for a date! Reservations required for outside seating

Not sure where to start on this brightly shinning gem stone of barbados.. But I’m going to keep it short and to the point. It is by far the best Indian curry you’ll find on the island. The staff are faultless. The scenery is just...divine. Cocktails although expensive are mind blowing and full of flavours. Very good list of wines. Highly recommend a visit, also great for takeouts but you’ll miss out on ambience.More

Was super disappointed eating here. It’s a beautiful restaurant. The service was far too slow, then when we received the starters it was cold, and missing sauces, and tasted awful. The staff were good and took mo way off but we cancelled our main meals...and went elsewhere.More
