We had late lunch at the heritage Cafe and ordered papaya juice, humus, avocado prawn salad and grilled prawns - price 5000 rupee. It was tasty but nothing special, it's probably a better place for a romantic dinner. Service was friendly, overall 3-4 points.

The court yard setting would make anything taste good, but the food and juices here are way above average and the menu has something for every taste.
