Honestly the food was not so good and tasty, chicken could be prepared with some more taste. moreover the hotel was out of the food stock so they could not serve the food as mentioned in the menu.
So this time the food memory was not worth to share moreover I will suggest you to speak to the resort manager about your food requirement prior 1-2 days of your visit.
Other Things to Do:
At night you can ask for a Bon-fire, where you can sit with your travel buddies and enjoy the cool weather. On next day I decided to visit other nearby attractions. Trust me the Bastar district gave me lot many things for my travel memories.
