What a wonderful dining experience. Both the Kashmiri and Italian food was great, the bread warm and freshly baked , straight from the oven to the table and the service was par excellence - Mansoor, Jennifer. Definitely to be recommended and revisited.

A great place and the food was amazing. Just try anything, I bet you it wont be disappointing. The colors are great, the service is great. Their "ketchup with burgers" is amongst the best. Will definitely re-visit.

Open from 10am we offer breakfast/brunch, lunch, snacks, dinner & a full bar up to 10:30pm (and later) each & every day throughout the season. Come and linger over a book & a coffee, or indulge in a 3 course meal - entirely your choice!

We also offer a highly unique Kashmiri menu from the most Northern reaches of India; a special feature being our exquisitely fragrant Biryani - a must try.
