We had tasty thali lunch here – sat inside, in a pretty room decorated in rainbow colours. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and good prices. The coldest bottles of Kingfisher so far!

The restaurant is located inside the fort and is very nice and warm. The people are lovely and the food is very tasty. They sell beer for a very reasonable price.
