However the view was nothing much to speak off. The apartment overlooked a under-construction building. The mountain view on the other side was just so-so. The primary motive to visit...

With rains falling like a drizzle more or less, this restaurant reminds you of the European Steppes. We had chicken wings, taste of the sauce was so-so, however the succulent pieCes of wings were out of the world. Goes well with a well chilled pint of beer.
