Have visited the place on a first night we arrived to Gili. The place has a good choice of drinks and shisha. Checked the menu, looks also good, but haven't eat there. In general enjoyable experience and relaxing atmosphere. Like the table by the pool, so you can seat on the cushions with the feet in the water.

we loved this place and went every night for either dinner, drinks, shisha or all 3. we always seemed to end up chatting and spending time and telling stories with fellow travelers. it has a really young cosmopolitan crowd, once the staff got to know us they made us always feel welcome and went out of their way to accommodate...

We didn't eat here but spent a few hours drinking and chilling - it's in a great location, right in the middle of the main street and next to all the good restaurants and bars. It's also right on the sea front so great for watching the sunrise.

This is an amazing restaurant offering Indian food. The set menus are great for the price and are full of flavour. The masala was my favourite and we ate here more than once on our trip to gili t ! The restaurant was always full and had a great atmosphere !

I hate leaving negative reviews but I wouldn't want someone wasting their money on dinner here. Would recommend this place for a drink but would really not recommend it for food. We were really craving Indian food but we're very disappointed. We had the mushroom masala but it was way too salty to finish (maybe because they were tinned mushrooms).... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and bring these issues with our Indian food to our attention. It appears some of our suppliers had been changed recently and this has affected the taste of our Indian cuisine. We have since changed back and will be looking into improving the taste of all of our Indian dishes... More

We were at the pesona with 8 people and wanted to enjoy dinner and drinks together. Ordering happened quickly and without problems. But our dishes cane at completely separate times and two orders were wrong. We had to wait half an hour till the last two dishes arrived and by then the first person had finished ages ago. The portions... More
