I had several times lunch in Bona Cafe and it was really delicious. A little bit expensive but it worth. I like Lemon Ice Tea there and Bibimbab there. Service sometimes is a little bit slow but food is good.

Firstly I cannot believe we ended eating Korean while in India but there were limited options and we were pleasantly surprised. The food choices were immense and well executed. The ginger and lime juice was divine. Service was also very good.
