The place does not change, it still offers great quality food cared about by the staff. We made a point of going back and were not disappointed.

We went twice for their Indian style thali, a dish I can really recommend. We had to wait for a long time at our second visit since they were short on staff that evening but it was definitely worth it, and the chef came out and apologized several times for the delay.

Pure vegetarian delicious food. I am not a vegetarian but if I had someone cook for me like that I could easily become one. Food served in a house garden. The choices many with daily extras of course and reasonable prices for the area. Highly recommended for a dinner or lunch.

The restaurant offers a nice garden and sitting area. The chef is also a nice and friendly host. Prices are 800 for a meal. As I read the story of the owner (who is about passion for cooking and serving ... ) I expected something very special and tasty but I was disappointed. Maybe I only chose the wrong dish... More
