You’d almost miss this place, it’s narrow with only a few tables. They have 5 different Curry’s and an all-you-can-eat concept. Excellent food!! Very friendly staff, we had a talk with the owner who is also the chef when he’s in town. Great ambiance. Overall...More

The food is ok, but not more. It was disappointing. In the chicken curry are more bones than chicken. For this money you can eat elsewhere better.

Went here for dinner and absolutely loved the food and the very friendly staff. The price is fixed for unlimited servings from the buffer (about 5-6 mains in all). The food is served in small trays and the staff are very attentive and helpful. We...More

It’s very small, has seating for about 12. There’s plenty of other options around the fort, loads of reviews on tripadvisor for places.
