The outdoor patio is surrounded by tropical plants that further highlight the romantic atmosphere. The air-conditioned indoors with adjustable partitions are very popular among Arabic guests in quest of privacy.

Celebrating the marine theme, the restaurant serves wonderfully prepared seafood from sea bass to prawns, lobster and hummer. Large part of the menu is

dedicated to North Indian cuisine with many vegetarian options. Available are also Arabic specialties and western fare.

 

Begin your dining experience with Mix Pakora or Paneer Chilli, ordering as a main meal Prawn Biryani, Mutton Masala or Tandoori Chicken Tikka - best accompanied by Kashmiri Naam. Conclude with the sweet Gajar Halwa, sipping the traditional Masala Tea.

 

If you are a fan of Arabic cuisine, ask for the delicious staffed grape leaves and Hummus with lamb or mushrooms, savoring next Kebab Lamb, Shish Taouk or the mixed BBQ with garlic bread and Tabbouleh salad. While ladies will have a hard time to resist the sweet Gulab Jamun, gentlemen may prefer to end their evening with shisha and tobacco flavor of their choice.
