We boarded the train and were shown to our booth. It was a quiet evening, and for most of the evening, it was just my husband and I. However, at no time did we feel awkward. It is perfect for a romantic evening with the pianist playing and an excellent vocalist adding to the ambience. The food was delicious with... More

But this time round, we were all together in India (parents, sister and I) and thought that this would be the perfect occasion to visit this restaurant as a family. Everyone... More

It lives upto the expectation. Food is delicious and the live singer adds a completely different charm to the place. She was really good, I even requested a song. Although I am a chocolate lover and had high expectations from the lava cake, I was disappointed with the taste. All in all, will definitely visit again.

This is the kind of place you go for a special occasion. It's not cheap by any means but the food is delicious and the service is faultless. You leave feeling that you've had a fantastic evening. We have been at least 10 times and have never had a bad experience there.

Finally you take he corner seats to have private moments with your loved one. Order your drink and it is served with delicacy. The atmosphere is such tht you... More
