Vegeterian Food Is Average

i ordered paneer and it had no unique flavour to it, fries are also very average, so are their juices.

The food is great at Nargis, the ambiance could be alot better and so could the service be alot more quicker. Though the wait is absolutely worth the food served!

Visited this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed with the quality of food on offer. Tried their dal bhajias and fish tikka with masalla chips. The fish was cooked to perfection and was not dry. The place was busy during our lunchtime visit and the service was prompt. They do not allow alcohol on the premises but... More

Any decent restaurant would treat it's customers with respect but looks like owner don't care. We simply complained about meat being served cold and what we got back was shocking !!- owner himself had the audacity to says "this is what we have been in serving for years", can you imagin. Please avoid them there are plenty of good places... More

This restaurant is around the corner from where I work and delivery is a phone call away. The meat is always well marinated and this is a great place if you want to nip into the place and eat there. Simplistic yet inviting, they have both indoor and outdoor seating. The tangerine juice is my favourite and the meal isn't... More

Nargis still offers the original Tikka they used to have at River Road. The Ambiance is nice with some open siting though it gets cold at night. The Chicken Tikka is fantastic.

the best bit about it is that it is less packed than Hashmi, therefore you do not have to wait for a long time to be seated (usually you dont have to wait at all) Service is good..the food is great and of a decent price... although of late their portions have diminished in size, you still get what you...

Nargis has amazing Indian BBQ. Their food is delicious and fresh. Sometimes when you go to BBQ restaurants, you find that the meat isn't fresh and is from the day before. This is definitely not the case at Nargis. Now on the downside, the service is very slow and the food takes quite some time and so you have to... More

We go once a week, best masala tea and chicken tikkas in town! They deliver too! Don't expect much in terms of ambience or atmosphere but all that is made up by the fresh tikkas!
