    Having been to many fine dining places of different cuisines, I would not consider this to be considered as fine dining place. Went to celebrate anniversary but the overall dining experience came up short. Ambiance is mediocre at the best, the seating is crowded and the sofa’s in the booth were worn out. The noise level was way out loud. Hard to have a conversation. The food was ok and so were the drinks. Nothing super special or exciting. The only silver lining was that the service was good and didn’t have to wait long to get food. Our server was excellent and attentive to our needs which was excellent. I think it’s overall ok to go for casual dining or gathering with the friends but definitely not for special occasions or for a fine dining experience.

    It had a great ambiance and excellent food, as always. I loved the non-alcoholic options they had for drinks. I tried Peru Ayala because I love a little spice in the drink, which was refreshing. Also, don't miss the tandoori sea bass in the appetizers. It's a little expensive but worth the taste.

    We were there on Mother’s Day for lunch. The food was mediocre. Dessert was frozen and even after complaining to the lady, she didn’t care. They just charged for the whole thing, even though we couldn’t eat the dessert. Nor offered us another one. Will think twice next time when choosing a restaurant. /

    Overall good experience. 4 star because of poor drinks. absolutely watered down sangria that honestly tasted like Pineapple juice.. probably the worst I have ever had for $17 dollars or so.. other drinks were also mediocre. Food was perfect. Screaming baby next to us was not fun! Else would be 5 star.

    Excellent food, served nicely on time. I think the quantity is a bit less per serving compared to other similar restaurants

    Tandoori sea bass and tandoori shrimp appetizers were off the hook. Pricey, but delicious.

    I asked for a standard table but they gave me a bar table. Appetizer were good but byriyani sucks. Very less cocktail menu. And the old fashion which I ordered was not like how it should be.
