Nice ambiance, good atmosphere and beautiful surroundings - small but good place to have lunch at North Bay Island which fits with the local atmosphere. Bengali dishes are available here in reasonable price. Meal system is also available. Staffs are humble and cooperative. But service is mere slow.
