If you compare proper asian food to this restaurant, then you will definitely be disappointed however if you just need a bit of asian kick, i would say out of the 3 dishes we tried, the Beef noodle soup was the most decent.

They do serve a kind of fusion Indian food which can be said to have some 'north Indian' type dishes. But it is quite basic & not very authentic. Considering it is in a very remote area, it suffices. S.G.Aney
