Good food and nice ambiente next to a pond with man water lilies. Little hard to find but worth a visit.

The food was average compared to others of similar style in the area. We ordered north Indian food and it was okay. I think this place has been given other average reviews and I just agree with them.

When we were about to give up some one locally referred this restaurant, difficult to find on your own, ask locals for direction. Offer tasty and homely Veg food. Do visit if you want food option beyond sea food.

Very very greenish place. Gives a pleasant eyesight. But not that well executed as far as the service and the food are concerned. Hoping to get it better
