It is run by husband and wife and they were very friendly and welcoming.We ordered egg toast, spaghetti and lassi. Food was very good especially the sauce on spaghetti was freshly made and very tasty. The ambiance of the restaurant is not really great though.

This is a small cosy restaurant run by a talented, hardworking couple providing an excellent range of Indian or European food ranging from light lunch to more substantial dinner. Those longing for some European style bread will enjoy the home cooked French baguette. The setting...More
