A very good restaurant in town. I have tased the food in almost all the restaurant in Fort Kochin but this seems to be unique. Their speciality in sea food is excellent. I recommend all of you who vist Fort Kochin to try out in this restaurant at least once. I guarantee that u will never forget it. JACK
