We went with great expectation but were thoroughly disappointed. Over priced menu. The fish served was not fresh. A decent ambience is the only positive.

No flavour, no taste, burnt fish fry and sad service. Needs a lot of improvement on the flavour and taste. Does not compare to the Mumbai outlet at all

It is actually waste of money ....When you pay so much cost you expect food to be at least good quality. Also if you compare the quantity you get after that money is terrible ..I would not recommend to waste money here.
