This is a must visit restaurant for good Indian Food. The majority of dishes are Malabar based food so if you like the dishes made with coconut oil, this is a must visit. All dishes are excellent - I am vegetarian and so had a great time with the vegie dishes. My friends definitely enjoyed the seafood and were repeat customers. The Kerla Parottas are excellent. The prices are reasonable. The staff are very courteous but at times on busy days, I felt that they were not able to cope up with the tables. The Manager goes out of the way to make you comfortable. Totally recommend the restaurant for a good meal.

This is a typical Indian restaurant serving grilled food, curries along with a few continental options. Restaurant has a variety of sea food options and I recommend the sea food platter as well as the grilled fish items. Mutton options are few and the vegetarian and chicken items are OK, but nothing great to talk about. Better Indian food is served in at least a couple of other places.

Ambience is very poor. Waiters are good and attending. It was told that they don't charge for home delivery orders above QR 100/-. However they took delivery and parcel charges for my order which was worth QR 200/-. A word is a word and end of the day it matters a lot. Till today, I have not placed my second order.

Went for a weekend lunch to this place a week back. Had high expectations from this new restaurant. But was totally disspointed with the food quality and ambience. Needs a lot more effort from the management to improve on the food quality as well as the ambience.

Location: Very good, bang on West Bay in Al Maha Twin Towers.

Ambience: Not so good. Presence of flies near the table. Really shocked to see flies roaming near the tables for a restaurant located in such a good area. Even if their is continous opening and closing of doors, their are surely many workarounds to avoid having flies in the restaurant.

Food: Totally dissapointed with the main course. Mixed platter kebab is good not excellent. Juice is good. However for main course we had taken Kerla Parata, chicken biryiani and Patiala chicken. Each of them was drenched with oil to an extend where by mid way the food had to be left in the table. Also the food lacked the touch of authentic Indian taste.

I have read in the local newspaper about the management's vision for this restaurant. However a lot needs to be improved to achieve that vision mostly interms of food quality and ambience.
