The baked fish was not good at all. Overrate! The prawn cook in dark sauce is not tasty too.The chicken in Portuguese sauce is average and the baked brinjal was also ok.

The restaurant is not so congested with tourist. Service was fast. The Honey chicken was good. You can order local baked cakes with 2 days notice.
