The food and service overall were wonderful. Really enjoyed the spices and flavors, nothing bland in our orders. Nice size portions for entrees, small sides. Would dine here again.

Had been here for team lunch and enjoyed Jerk Chicken which is little overcooked,but taste great with rice. I found taste has impact of Indian Cuisine(Kerala and Konkan cuisine). Ambience is good and service is also fine. One should not miss the fried plantains here.

None when we were there (in the evening), though the music playing was pleasant. However, as noted in my review, we left without food and would not go back.
