I had an Indian vegetarian meal. The service was prompt and friendly with a good view of Jabi Lake. It would be nice if they install a cordless POS so that I can pay without leaving the table.

I've mostly eaten off the Indian menu, but there's a page of Sri Lankan and Chinese dishes as well. The full menu includes appetizers, alcohol, and mixed drinks. I like the... More
