The restaurant is located in the town center, right by the wharf. The staff are amazing and the ambience pleasant and warm. Jain food was provided upon request. All in all, a good dining place servicing very good Indian and Thai food.

From traditional dishes like Pad-Thai to Indian Butter Masala Chicken and new fish dishes which are closely guarded, using the finest quality ingredients is the speciality at GREENS.At GREEN’S, the dining experience is as important as the food itself.
