Masala tea is one of the best, ordered so much - plates of grilled and curry fish, chicken, biryani, papadum, and a whole lot more! Book early to avoid walk-in disappointment.

Was recommended by hotel staff to try this restaurant and found to be worth the visit. Nice ambience and staffs. Had the best fish head curry I ever had. Would definitely will visit again. The price slightly expensive but its worth the spend.
