We had fish curry meals, drums of heaven which were half cooked, chowmein, chilly chicken, fried rice etc. Bullet for over rs 2000 for four. Fried king fish was sitting in the fridge, probably for a week waiting for us to turn up. Not one dish was good. Give the restaurant a wide berth folks.

The cool breeze and the sound of the gushing water gives you the feel of a life by the coastal areas. One can also have a relaxing...
