We had a grilled fish + prawn curry. The fish was very dry and hardly edible. The curry was lacking flavor and only tasted like curry powder. Way to expensive for what you get.

We came here because the restaurant we wanted to visit was having a private function. Food was average but it was clean and there was a good choice of dishes. No complaints as the food was perfectly ok, not amazing but not awful (February 2016)
