Fantastic seafood - We had beautiful Fresh prawns and seer fish. There was pretty garden with Pool. It seems very popular as when we went twice it was quite busy - lovely owner and staff. Service quick and efficient and prices very reasonable.

Susantha's is also a hotel and listed on TripAdvisor. The person who manages the restaurant does not manage the hotel. It would be useful to list the restaurant separately as it is open to the public and much appreciated by people who stay at other hotels (we stayed at the Taj and much preferred the food at Susantha's).
