“Average in everything. Except for the long wait to get in.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I think one would have to rate this place as average. The mulligatawny soup was excellent but the main was bland. But then, for tourists wanting to escape highly spiced Indian food perhaps bland is good. It's got very pricey now. Go to a Bengali restaurant. You will eat far better for far less

“Good variety of cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

This is a multi-cuisine restaurant, comprising of modified continental fare, some Indian moghlai items, a few Italian dishes, and a limited variety of desserts. The quality of food is indeed good, and is an extremely popular destination for the more discerning type of restaurant goers. It is also not a pricey restaurant, but neither is it cheap. The drawback is the decor and the attire of the waiters, a throwback from the colonial era.

“Great Food with a taste of the old Classics !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

Just Great food. Mostly the European kind which used to be available much more earlier, now restricted to such places only.Never to be missed if you wish to taste something which is not available easily elsewhere now.
