Very convenient place from where I live. Always good food and good service. Cook your own set of meat/fish/veg to your own liking. The only hot stone restaurant in Seychelles.

This place is a bit tricky to reach, but an absolute gem. Food really nice and very different, not your usual curry. I would have given it a 5 rating if service was not slow. Great place for kids as well as the place is...More
