It was a fun-filled visit for me and for my friend, though the Zoo is not well maintained. Still I would say it is worth visiting this place for once. Inside restaurant the food price high, overall an average experience for me.

Principally you should not enter with food item inside the zoo, still who cares about that and many many people carry food items, now there is strict rule about plastic bags which is not allowed.
