Not sure whether all five occupied tables on the veranda were purposely seated at once or not, but after we settled in, the owner came out, sat at a table, and announced the evening's specials to the group. He was engaging, sincere, and entertaining, and...More

The food and atmosphere along with the friendliness of the service was to hrithik. However the time between ordering and getting the delicious food delivered had us almost up and leave if you don't mind waiting it's well worth the trip.
