          We picked this cafe/restaurant based on Loneley Planet recommendation. What disappontment! The food was mediocre and tasteless. We ordered a chicken burger and an Empire Salad - both were underwhelming. The chips were bizzarely battered in something and simply didn't taste good. They had only...More

          Nice place just in front of the tooth temple. Food is good, veggie burger and old empire fish curry very nice. Lime soda a bit too acid. Only occidental tourists. Price for 2 : 2000rs. 13eur. Visa accepted. Good wifi.
