Normal shack with Seafood and other delicacies. They have a wonderful dish, Fish in chilly garlic, cooked in butter with lots of vegetables and served with chapattis. Sea facing seats. Reasonably clean. If you need something to your taste they will cook that too.

This used to be our faved place on the Lighthouse beach. But something has gone wrong, the service is not so friendly anymore and the food quality has lowered. Pity, since we have used it for years. Tandoori was not good.
