Well recommended restaurant, but open only in high season. The alternative is the buffet at the Holiday Inn dining room, which was mediocre.

Average Indian linked physically to the Holiday Inn. Disappointing service attitude and really underwhelmed by food which was very salty. Had various dishes - Rogan Josh, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Tikka and Bhaji with Garlic Nan. Nothing impressed except the Nan. Will not go again.

The Raj hotel is adjoining the Holiday Inn with beautiful sea views. Staff are friendly and service good. We have tried 3 local Indian restaurants and food here was our favourite. Would definitely return.
