Every memorable occasion is spent in Lamana with good Indian food varieties. Though newly included stuff takes us to Italy & Brazil all under one roof.

There are several restaurants in the hotel. This was one. Breakfast buffet does not have a lot of choice. They kept running out as portions set out are small. Ok fresh but small for a large hotel. Dinner was salty. Had burger and bun came all apart. Was not fresh yet was expensive. Took 40 minutes to be served. Restaurant... More

Having eaten at the Italian restaurant only four times I was impressed when the waiter remembered what I'd ordered the past couple of times I'd eaten there. The wine list is expensive but the food is always great - flavourful and freshly prepared and the customer service is great. Shame about the noise from the bowling alley upstairs and we... More

looking for a good place to have a private moment with family, look no further than Palazzo, where you find the best pizza and a hot cup of white coffee that will put you at ease.

I've been here twice in the last couple of weeks, looking for simple but well cooked dinners. The renovations here are going well and the new restaurants are really comfortable and pleasant to be in. I had a Chicken Biryani on one night and the Penne with chicken and Mushroom on the second night..both were really good. They've got a... More

Went there once and tried a PNG local dish - Aigir - made of braised Chicken, sweet potato, boiled banana, pumpkin, spinach like veg and coconut creme. The creme was very tasty. Overall the food was good. I hear they are famous for their italian buffet on Tuesdays, have not tried though. I hope to try it sometime.

Nothing too exciting about the food. Service is ok. Their desserts are not very nice at all. The cheese cake tasted powdery and I don't think they use proper cream cheese.
