“Great place for seasfood”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We arrived here at 19:00 after recommendation from our hotel. The restaurant is a bit fancy looking, but was empty at this time. It started to fill up, and when we left around 20:30 it was very full. I think it's best to reserve a table if you arrive late.

The food was excellent. We tried 4 different dishes, and all the fish was juicy, served in delicious Indian gravy. This is probably the best place to go in the Fort area.

“Lacks ambience”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My hotel recommended this restaurant. While the food was great (terrific veg won ton soup and Crab sukha) , it took a very long time to come. Also, while I am sure they were just trying yo be helpful, I found the preponderance of table staff annoying (need to provide people with a bit of peace to eat!) . The restaurant was also way too cold to be able to properly enjoy the meal.
