So nice to see some unusual dishes, great service, beautifully cooked. Will defiantly return. The service was good, will be nice to visit in the summer as in a nice country location.

We came in as a large group of 14 and the staff and chefs did a fantastic job. All of the food came at the perfect time (3 courses) - it was great tasting and rich!

We went on recommendation and were not let down the staff were very friendly and gave good advice on menu and wines, the price is on the high side, but the cooking is 100percent, as good as anywhere in India, keep to house wine or beer as by the bottle expensive, good parking.

The food is always TOP CLASS, so tasty. The presentation is great - little copper pots, looks so attractive. All the Staff are so polite and friendly, the restaurant is spotless. A very relaxed but friendly place, we went again last Saturday night and took friends who were equally impressed! :-)
