Their selection of non veg dishes is good, we had ordered tandoori snacks and Indian gravy dishes which were quite good. Vegetarian dishes weren't as good. We know that there is a lot of rush, cleanliness got compromised. The tables were greasy, floors were greasy,...that definitely requires an improvement.More

Had eaten food 3 yrs back & had good experience. But now we went as family got dinner on 1/04. Pathetic experience. Had ordered Butter chicken & Rara mutton with Nan & Roti Butter chicken was taste less , no salt Hinesyly we had to...eat as we could not have gone back home as it was already 9-9.30 Rara mutton had 1-2 very small portions of mutton & all keema gravy. Never seen such horrible Rara mutton. Nan was cold as if we were served some old balance nan qty Seems restaurant is surviving on old reputation & location benefit Suggest avoid going to this place.More

We ordered vegetarian meal, seems that staff doesn't know difference between veg and nonveg, found a bone in our kadhai paneer. When staff was told about this they started offering us discount.Utterly disappointed.

The ambience and the food are equally good. If you can visit during the evening. But also be aware that it will get crowded during the weekends. The view the valley be it at night or day, adds up to the experience of the delicious...food....More

Had Gobhi masala, daal makhni along with accompaniments, trust, never ever had this sort of taste in my entire life, though its a bit costly affair to have food here, however, every penny is justified, my family just went goo ga ga over the food....lip smacking and sumptuous meal. A must visit restaurant serving organic veggies. ( Am a vegetarian hence don't know how the Non-veg. tasted like).More

This is a great restaurant offering mouth watering Indian food with a fantastic view of the mountains! The staff especially Mr Dinesh was polite, quick and efficient! He suggested some great dishes which we will definitely go back for! You must try dal makhani, aloo...and paneer Naan/ Parantha. If you are craving non veg then you can try their malai chicken tikka. I’m sure there are a lot of great tasting dishes on the menu so don’t hesitate to ask Dinesh! They don’t have a bar but can serve you non alcoholic drinks. Great place for Indian style breakfast, lunch or dinner!More
