Love the selection of tandoori kebabs

Have been here several times. The fuchkas are great starters. Everything I have tried has been excellent and in particular the tandoori kebabs. For something less spicy try the Chicken Afghani.

Snacks and chaat items (papdi chaat, gol gappe etc.) is good. However, main course is a let down with sweetened gravies and chicken

Not one of Dhaka's fanciest places but still one of my favs! Its small and a bit run down downstairs, the upper part is nicer but less lively. But if you're looking for the best Indian snacks such as dahi phuchka, raj kachori etc that's the place to go! I always take my visitors and am there almost once a... More

Checked the food at this joint after almost a year. Taste has gone down. Interior is a gloomy as it was before. But price have gone up, quantity has gone down. Some items are unreasonably priced i.e. Daal Makhani, with VAT it costs you TK.398/-, bad value for money. Chiken Tikka lacks spice and seriouly lacks the flavour flavour of... More

Average service and average food. Naan are good though. A little overpriced like a lot of places in Banani.

A tasty restaurant with reasonable price. Nice interior & quality dishes could satisfy the customers. Service was average. They have several branches & I liked their Dhanmondi branch the most. Do try Doi fuchka & Hot Kababs!
