Reviews seemed good yet quite disappointed in this restaurant. Despite it being fairly empty, getting drinks served to us took absolutely ages despite many requests to bring them over!! When we tried to order food, our waiter kept telling us to have something else as it would be too spicy! It was the insistence of the waiter though that made us nearly walk out! We finally got what we wanted and although the food was nice it was nothing special. The waiters kept hanging around us like flies which was also very off putting. Wouldn’t go back in a hurry!!

We enjoyed our meal here. Service was good. The place gets busy later in night. The quality of meal was average. Not outstanding as we heard.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel so went to try some of their signature dishes. We were sorely disappointed. Overly salted food coupled with salty service. The waiters are pleasant but when they see you are a tourist they try to make a bit of extra money off you where they can. Simple things like switching for more expensive brands of water or bringing out the live crab without telling you there are two options. They are defensive when pulled up on it too. Safe to say we will not be returning.

We had planned our walkabout around our plans to have lunch at this spot...definitely worth it.

We got there a bit early at 12:30pm on a weekday so pretty much had the place to ourselves.

We decided to have a couple of dishes and stuck to seafood. Had the Tandoori pomfret tikkas (soft and succulent), the shelled butter pepper and garlic crab and a manglorian styled shrimp curry with aapams and neer dosa. The highlight was definitely the crab dish....medium spicy for locals but think it would be considered 'spicy' for visitors such as us. I loved it but my family found it hot. The aapams were ok but the beer dosa was really soft and worth trying...a very different texture. The curry was nice too.

All in all came to about Rs 7k for 4 of us and largely because the crab dish was around half of that. Service was excellent.

I would highly recommend this spot and would suggest you stick with the seafood items.
