Had a lovely stay here and enjoyed the evening meal as well. We had a lovely veggie rice and curry and would recommend this place to anyone. Location on the river is also nice.

Got fed up with the expensive and bad tasting hotel food, we decided to explore the area for other restaurants. Even though it costs an extra Rs1,500 to get to this place, it definitely beats the food we have been having so far. Atmosphere is...More
