Visited Spectra after a long time and I was very impressed with all the health and safety measures taken during this difficult time. The manager Mr Ajay took exceptional care of us to make us feel at ease and with his warm hospitality. Sarmila and Esther, our attendants made sure the good food kept coming and took care of every minute detail for every one of us. As soon as one plate was finished another arrived and it made us really feel welcome and at home. Our thanks to them. The food was exceptional as always but the service, warmth and safety during this difficult time helped us really enjoy the experience to a different level.
