We loved this restaurant. Very tasty food, with a nice view of the capital, and good service. We ordered vegetable curry and beef tandoor.

I went there once and faced a terrible experience. I was served old rice. The plates they provided had fishy smell, not washed properly. The taste of the food was so so. But their behavior was not proper. Altogether that was a horrible experience.
