I visited the restaurant 22nd April 2017 with my Family. It’s a nice place near to the beach. Food was good but service got delay as it was very busy on Saturday evening.

For a restaurant that is right on the beach it has amazing food and has great service too. The staff is helpful and it is possible for them to go light on the spices, a feat quite difficult in some of the nearly places.
