And a fresh lime soda which didn't turn up until the middle of main course. We must've asked for it atleast 8 times. Ok. The mains. Plated well. Tasted like rubbish.... More

Located at the top of the mountain, the place offers a great view! The ambiance is warm and the music lively. It has an old world charm to it. The staff too is friendly and quick. I had ordered a spaghetti pasta which was very filling and just right in terms of flavours! The accompanying garlic bread could have been... More

Excellent veg momos, neon green rice paper. Strong mains for teens and adults-spaghetti and meatballs-excellent rich sauce and good pasta;meatballs eggy and a bit plain. Pasta primavera with chicken, outstanding garden flavour. Good value. Better food and value than other top ranked hotel/restaurant, where we are and stayed.

The place gives you a glimpse of the British era.. It's well maintained.. And the food is just yummy.. Getting reservation done in advance is recommended though..

My cousin took us for lunch there. I have to say, I was impressed with the place. They have a glass house kind of area outside, but it was packed, so we got a table inside the building. Its a lovely old bungalow and the food is also very good. I would definitely recommend this place. Next time I go... More

The location of the restaurant is breathtaking. The food was ok.. Did not really live up to the Hype some of my friends created. So overall decent experience.
