Phil was very helpful, flexible with our limitations and responding to all our wishes. You can ask for exclusion of any ingredient you don't like and it will be gladly accommodated.

After a few weeks of very good but also very spiced indian food, we made a break and had a lunch and dinner at this small restaurant. It is a kind of familiar management, with the cook who come at your table to ask about the food. Pesto pasta was quite good and, at dinner (not possible at lunch) also... More

The staff were very pleasant and the service was fine. The main food was not as hoped or expected but the children enjoyed the brownie and ice cream dessert.

The Lasagna and the steak was ok but there was no garlic bread. The Pina colada was so watery that you would not be wrong if you thought that you were drinking water. The barbeque sauce also was watered down. over all not a great place. can be missed unless one is desperate to eat that kind of food.

Friendly staff, fast service and delicious food, at a great price. Definitely a must visit. Close to Aravind eye hospital, take an auto for about 120 Rbs, 15mins and you are there.

Tried the Mushroom and Pesto Crostini In Focaccia, which could have been better in terms of preparation, presentation and portions. The garlic bread was quite decent as an accompaniment to the main course which comprised Phil's fried chicken steak and chicken pepper steak, both of... More
