The Asian food they have now switched to is a far better than what they had there earlier Good food at decent prices Just stay away from the desserts at any of the HIDESIGN properties. They look deceptively good They need to send chefs to Mango Hill in auroville to pick up tips on sublime desserts!

The quality of the food at the Blueline restaurant is diversified, european and indian standard. Breakfast served as buffet...
