Excellent food. Very good hospitality. The Dhall Makhani, Veg Biryani and the Vazhapoo Cutlet are worth trying. Aakash hospitality was very good and his good suggestions were noteworthy. The ambience was soothing with soft flow of music.

Loved the service. Love the staff. Love the absolute beauty of the facilities. Love the closeness to the ocean. The food was good, not exactly Jamaica, but it was good. I remember Sanjay and Vijayalakshmi, who were great to me in terms of everything.
