The food is good. The service may be a bit slow, but it is worth the wait. Great atmosphere, and I love their fish tank feature. A good variety of cuisines, well-located in the middle of the city.

I very much enjoyed my meal at the Copper pot. Service was good and food was very good. The food here is authentically Indian- the Dhal Tarka a particular favourite of mine. I would eat here again even if I were staying at somewhere different (not the Crossroads Hotel. Recommended.
