“Excellent dinner after shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Really busy indian restaurant with a waterfront terrace - enter through the mall and you'll findi t on the 1st floor.

Really different and interesting menu and you can watch the chefs prepare your food in the open kitchen. The food is served on boards and in jam jars or baskets - very different but so fresh and tasty.

Not licensed - but enjoy a fresh fruit juice.

The buffet was excellent highly recommended.... I left home away home after having paneer dish.... I drove down 600 km and was there to spend my weekend. Excellent and good valve for money. The terrace area having the marina view is beautiful.

“Great views and nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This restaurant has an outside terrace looking straight onto the marina.
Food was really nice at a very fair price - about 200dhms for a meal for two
Lots of different things to choose from on the menu and friendly staff as well.
The location is a ten to fifteen minute stroll from the sea front
