Lunch/Dinner here is quite an expensive affair, so be ready to empty your pocket as it will cost you more than 300$/20K INR per person.

It is also a favorite place to hangout for these Sting Rays. If you are going in there, be ready with your camera because you never know when the perfect moment arrives.
