Good, clean, spicy, delicious food. I have visited branches at Thane, Pune and Belapur with friends and family. All the time it was a nice experience. The sea food is a treat for the taste buds.

A friend recommended this place for its sea food and he was right. I had some fried prawns with a garlic sauce, really good. The restaurant is small and a bit dark but food and service are really good.

Recently visited with friends. Their stewards are too pushy to order expensive seafood dishes. It is really embarrassing, if you are with friends or business associates. Also the quality of food and drinks is much down if compared a year before.
