Food was fine. Quantity is less. V sat on the balcony. The railway track is just next to it. To reach it, u have to cross the tracks. When the train thunders past u can feel the vibration.

This is a friendly restaurant in quite a dramatic position, overlooking the railway line where the trains come thundering past. We called in for lunch and had samosas which were so delicious we ordered a second plateful and returned for dinner the following day. The...More
