If you're after decent food and nice mood and if you don't want to pay too much, Swagath seems a fine choice. We have eaten chicken stew and found the bill acceptable even after tax and service charge included.

A favorite for great seafood and chicken in delectable South Indian curries to be consumed along with steamed Appams ! Food is great. A bit expensive though, once all the taxes , service charges etc are counted in.
