We visited this place last night and here's a review, as fresh as the food we had there. The place could use a little better ambiance, in the sense, the lighting and presence of the karaoke singer doesn't do justice to the standard (and prices) of the food here. No offence to the musician, but bryan adams being belted out... More

The food here is really not up to the mark, up to whose mark, you may ask.... Not even up to the mark of a local street vendor, when we visited there were only 3 vegetables in each of the dishes we ordered .... Red pepper, Yellow pepper and spring onion...with a terrible balance of flavors with everything just tasting... More

Centrally located at Koregaon Park at Taj Vivanta, this restaurant serves good oriental cuisine. Great hospitality with an average ambience.

Place is a little crowded but location is good for both biusiness meetings and family dinners. Food used to be great earlier but this time I felt it was just average.

The crab sweet corn soup,to start with, brings flavours of the wonderful journey which one will experience. The starters have their authentic ingredients to take the diner to the pan-Asian cuisine followed by the main course whether it it fish or meats. The atmosphere too, is not rushed
