Indian foods can be very difficult to prepare with authentic flavors but Marina does it well. All authentic ingredients are imported from India. The place is usually packed with locals and expats, and we soon found out why. There’s a fully stocked bar with a variety of wines to choose from. The Marina also has it all in terms of dining facilities. The food and the service are fantastic, the price was reasonable and the portions are large. What more could we have hoped for.
