Ate here with a big party of 11 people including 3 kids. The staff were very friendly when approached and were kind enough to not charge for 2 of the kids. I went here after checking out the reviews and this place definitely lives up...More

Different menu everyday. They have live music on selected day. Price for buffet dinner is affordable (12USD excluding tax and drink) and relatively cheaper compared to my hotel's a la carte menu.

It's a mix buffet in general but I believe you can find some Indian food in a la carte menu..the chef comes from Sri Lanka so I'm pretty sure he added some Indian dishes in the menu
