I ordered fish(rs 250) It was good. Fried rice was not that great. Chicken tikka was little bit hard. Parota was good routine ordinary taste. . . .

I would rate it a 6 /10. The chicken and local dishes are made well though the rotis and other cuisine is still a far cry from what they claim. This is worth trying for a day.

I loved the chicken handi and the grilled chicken with chatni. Nice spicy food and good taste. I went to have my dinner over here and the rates are also quite reasonable.
