Located on Main mall road, so can be easily approached. Had chance to have Lunch in the Restaurant. View from the Restaurant was very good as Naini Lake was clearly visible but Food tasted was average. Overall enjoyed due to Location and Weather.

Situated on main mall road on 1st floor. I had Prawn corn soup which was average, Crispy chicken-it was very salty (i myself eat salt on upperside of normal intake).Crispy chicken would have been good if salt content was less. Veg fried rice were salty and average.Nothing much to write about or come again
