Nice atmosphere, but that is the only good thing about this restaurant! Service was terrible, we had to keep on asking for drinks and food came in drips and drabs. The jazz singe was totally too loud to make any kind of conversation!

We really enjoyed chilling on the rooftop under the shade- it's a nice getaway to the busy streets below- the food is good although slightly pricey for what they are. The lemon soda was a standout!

We only went in for chai and a break from sightseeing, ended up spending a pleasant hour on the shady roof terrace and eating great chocolate crepes. A lovely team of friendly Tamil ladies looked after us. Interesting gift / craft shop too.
