Great service and food. Menu included squid, sea bass and swordfish which is great to eat by the sea. Sea bass was excellent as was my mixed grill. Definitely be returning.

This is a great place for a more varied Indian menu. Love the location, especially on a sunny day/evening. I find it consistently friendly with good service, welcoming and I love the food.
