  1. To all these lovely places mentioned above, I Will like to add one more named Zucca Lounge. Zucca offers both, indoor and outdoor seating, with a relaxed ambiance. While the outdoors is bright and white, the indoors are quite cozy with different seating options. The menu offers an assortment of delicacies including the Thai Spiced Chilli Baby Corn, Classic Club Sandwich, and Tandoori Roasted Morsels of Chicken. Very good read 🙂
