Description
A riverside dining lounge: The culinary experience at Holywater promises to excite more than just the sense of taste. Donning the look of a snug & sunlit riverside cafe by day, Holywater metamorphoses into a candlelit gourmet dining lounge in the evening. The riveting panorama of river, verdure and mountain threatens to burst through the wall of windows and spill into the lounge. Whether it’s a steaming mug of coffee with your favourite book, or a delicious full-course meal with family and friends, Holywater offers distinctive dining experiences. Holywater is a multi-cuisine restaurant, serving authentic delicacies from diverse cultures including Mughlai, Continental, Chinese, South Indian, and of course regional. In our unique menu, you will find delectable dishes including 24*7 bites. Our Clay Oven Treasures and Great Indian Vegetarian Food preparations are renowned and promise satisfied lip-smacks.
