“Great food, great atmosphere, recommend”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We went here a few times, the Indian dishes were really good and you get a lot for the money you pay. Poppadom as a snack is really tasty with the chutneys! Also nice to sit and watch the sea and other islands. Option to sit on cushions on the floor or at a table. Cushions are nice touch, especially if your having a drink and a sheesha but can get uncomfortable if you stay there for hours. It gets busy so good to arrive a little earlier if you want a nice seat. They have wifi but you have to go by the bar for it to reach. If your on a budget it's a bit more expensive but worth it for a night out. We'd go again and recommend to others.

“Great location average food”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Was looking forward to a nice Indian meal. Service was a little slow and the food came out very quick.
Food wasn't very hot and a little plain. Atmosphere and location are good but I can't recommend the place

“Variety of Sitting area”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This was a lovely place.
1)They had beachfront setting for the Sheesha.
2) Then there is a formal dine setting just across the path.
3) Then they have an area with a movie projection.

Overall, food was good. Service was quick. Nice ambiance.

“Love the chilled-out vibe”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I ate here and really enjoyed the food; there was so much of it and was very tasty. Nice setting looking out onto the sea with twinkling lights from boats and the beach front of Gili Meno. We moved over to enjoy a strawberry & mint sheesha. We loved the music and chilled-out feeling in here. We'll revisit before we leave. Staff were very friendly and chatty but this isn't unusual in Gili T.
