“Good ambience but tasteless food”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The restaurant is in good location and the ambience is very good. But we were highly disappointed with the food. First of all none of the staff attended us for a long time. We were shown our seats but almost up to more than half an hour no one took order. After a long wait the order was taken, but again after further delay of 30 mnts the food has arrived. The most tasteless food I ever had. The calamari tasted like salted rubber bands. The papaya salad contained stones which spoiled our mood to eat. The fish served was stale. Above all the staff spoke offensively when we complained about the stones in the salad. In fact the papaya salad was nothing but just salted papaya scrape sprinkeled with a small amount of peanuts and some stones. I will never visit this restaurant again. The prices of the food is exorbitant.

“Good ambiance”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

It serves continental and has excellent location. Very nice ambiance on the rooftop, but the food itself leaves a lot to be desired.

“Good experience”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Went here on a dry Sunday and there was no brunch. We went for a la carte. The food was quite good. Dessert was quite sub-standard. But the ambience takes the cake! Will definitely like to go back for a nice evening.

The service was extremely bad. None of the staff had a smile on their face and they all seemed hungover or uninterested. They should definitely invest in better staff.

“An Underwhelming Experience”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Having read the mostly good reviews, dropped in here with a group of 6. Great ambience, good service but unfortunately, fairly underwhelming food: we had a mix of herbivores and omnivores and tried various vegetarian and non-vegetarian offerings consequently. No preparation was outstanding as such and the food we had was just about above average. Same for the cocktails: as is unusual for Hyderabad, the cocktails (well, the first round atleast) were appropriately mixed. However, the second round onwards, the cocktails gravitated towards the usual Hyderabadi restaurant style of mixing cocktails i.e. excessively diluted or objectionably strong.

Unless I am in the area and have no other option, I dont see myself going back to them.

“A so so experience”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

An amazing ambience,a perfect place to go to enjoy a romantic dinner with your loved one. We were seated in the corner,so had the best view of hyderabad under lights right ahead of us. Food is expensive and menu is limited. Not many varities for starters and main course. Since I like different cuisines, I liked the veg lasagne, I had ordered and even the paneer starter is worth a try. In the end, its a beautiful place if u wanna spend some quality time alone with ur loved one. Go for the ambience but not for the food.
