The view is better than the food! Having said that the food is not bad though the service could have been a whole lot better. Watching the elephants go about their business makes up for it though.

What a way to watch orphaned elephants being given some time to bathe in a river. The hotel staff are wonderfully polite and well mannered.

This restaurant has a very good view of river. And you can see lots of elephantscome to bathing in this river. They organize a buffetlunch with resonable price with standard quality of food.

If it were not for having some type of view of the the elephants bathing, we would not have gone to this hotel restaurant. Our private guide took my husband and I there for lunch. It was extremely packed, and it was buffet. (not sure if menu also). I did not dine, but my husband commented the food was average. The service was fine. It was a bustling atmosphere until the other guests departed. We were on the "terrace" but the view was obstructed by a vertical metal barrier fence. I only remember that a full view could only be seen by standing up to see above the barrier wall. However, I do not think there are any other restaurant options in the area to even have a partial view of the elephants.

Had breakfast in this restaurant watching Elephants take bath in River. People were selling Banana's (Rupees 200) to feed the Elephants. Kids enjoyed watching elephants taking a dip in water and baby elephants playing with each other. Food was average.
