Excellent crew. Tasty food. Superb fish, chicken options. Spice levels based on your need. I love the choice of breads and veggie options. Don't miss Gulab Jamoon and Kulfi for dessert. Decent wine and beer options too.

We really enjoyed ourselves at this restaurant. We were hoping to get tables with a view but we're unable to do so as the place was busy. Nevertheless, the food and service was exceptional!
