At the outset, I did not have much expectation about the place and thought it was another place to capitalize on the tourist surge. However, my perception turned wrong with the kind of warm welcome that was accorded with a tilak and garland, a welcome drink (warm tea) and some cheeselets. A guide takes us through the place in groups... More

The food was pretty... More

The charges of rs 400 per person is very high for cold pav( without bhaji), poor quality rice, dal, cabbage vegetable, black dal with potatoes. No roti etc. All items are cold. Not recommended when going with kids. For kids carry own food.
