This restaurant is situated on Ridge with great view just close to Gaiety. The food is good especially paneer pakoda and chicken tandoori with reasonable price. Good option for food with a tranquil environment.

Secondly its a circular, windowed kind of conservatory style with outside balcony sitting at the top of the Mall area so it has wonderful views on all sides, including major sites and next to the main square area and all the action. Thirdly it is clean, well appointed with lovely staff.... More

The terrace is lovely in a sunny day but food is average and service is scant and slow. Given the prices are not cheap, then why bother? Just have a drink and move on.
