A great menu to flick through, the staff were helpful in helping decide what to try. The menu had a selection of northern and southern dishes, including some I had not seen before. Live music was being played when I visited, just to add to the ambience, not to loud, just in the back ground. The drinks and food where... More

We were staying overnight here and had a lunch and breakfast. The food is definitely high-priced and the servers have to be informed about the spice level in any dish being ordered. The chicken kathi rolls I ordered for the kids, were very high on spice eventhough I had mentioned to the server that I was ordering for kids. However,... More

Good spread is available both for dinner and break-fast. Food is very tasty also. I liked the mutton dum biryiani and some of their desserts. Chicken momo was also excellent.

What an excellent evening in every respect! Your staff were professional and very helpful and I would like to thank Mr. Angel especially for keeping his finger on the pulse at all times. Everybody enjoyed the wide spread buffet, ambiance, music, and service. Thank you very much.

The restaurant is conveniently located and the best part is it serves late night. It has a contemporary decor. Food menu is limited for late night dinners and vegetarians do not have choices at all. Some of the dishes are great and some seem to be stale. I have been here a few times and quality is not consistent.
