Visiting Xiamen we decided to try the most recommended restaurant. The food is good, the service a bit unorganized, but the overall rating is good.

Comfortable setting, good service and the Owner, John, is the consummate host. They offer a wide variety of high quality Indian dishes and make good use of what is available fresh locally. John is also a somalier and always has good wine on stock. Best to call ahead and make a reservation for a group and let John put together the menu.

The best restaurant in Xiamen, good food, good wine selection and the decoration of the restaurant is very outstanding. All under the watchful eyes of John and I would say that he is the best host. He helps me to choose the right food and everything is quite balance for my German guests and everybody is really enjoyed the food and his host very much. If I would have chance to go Xiamen again, I will definitely pay a visit again and I am highly recommended all of you to this restaurant.
