This restaurant is built like a tree house and seating is at different levels so you feel secluded yet part of the whole establishment. There is a stage where they feature musicians and dancers and is visible from all tables. The cuisine is quite good...More

It was a destination spot because so many friends told us to go....yep, we looked around and finally found it closed. Not sure if renovation or not. I tried to find the photo we took but I've got hundreds to go through yet....

Read the reviews here and also heard about this from a friend. Walked around Sivatha street for 20 min only to realized that the cafe is now closed. The sign is still there and I'm not sure if the business has moved somewhere else. Sigh.

Very interesting layout with ladders everywhere leading up to different levels, and is possibly worth a visit just to see this. The food is truly awful, and the whole place does seem fairly dirty. The crocodiles appear to be kept in appalling conditions too.
