“Loved the food and the ambiance. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. Wish we had this in the US.” — Ariana S.
“Walking in at 9p, it was easy to get a seat. Located in a iconic neighborhood, which was just cool to pass through, the inner atmosphere was neat. Great service, adjusted for any need. For an Indian restaurant that's upscale, it was interesting to try Indian-influenced oysters and regular pani puri and chicken biryani. Good drinks, nice music.. staff was really friendly.” — Amit D.
“Very creative and flavorful dishes. Good service. Nice ambiance. The team in the kitchen genuinely seemed to be enjoying being there, a good sign!” — A V.
