“Amazing Southern Cuisine”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

By far one of the best restaurants across India. Offering a wonderful spread of southern coastal specialities. A must try for first time (& repeat) visitors on a short stay and craving for good indian food.

Prices are on the high side. Expect to pay US$ 100/pax without alcohol for a sumptuous filling 3-course meal.

“Fantastic Southern Fare”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

The painitngs and the ambience in the restaurant is glorious. My son and I had the south indian meal which included the soft shell crabs and prawns. The lamb appetiser is yummy. The rasam is served in a lovely cup and the cutlery used is fabulous. My son enjoyed the belgium chocolate dessert which had a yummy filling. This dish had a unique south indian name and it was absolutely heavenly. I had the oatmeal ice cream which was first of its kind and i definitely recommend the desserts. The meal was polished off by a filter coffee which is foamed by the staff as one metre coffee. Thumbs up to this restaurant and to its Executive Chef.

“did not like the food butthe ambience and cutlery is great”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

heard a lot about this place and was there as part of a business meeting in one of their private dining rooms. the ambience and décor is superb and so is the cutlery. the staff is attentive and serve well. but the reason rated it average is the food is not that great. Being a south Indian, was disappointed by the taste of the food served. liked the prawn starters and one of the curries. of some 8 dishes that would have tasted. need I say more?
