The ambience is awesome and cost. The food served is sumptuous and you feel the mughlai taste. Excellent service and hospitality. Malai Tikka, a delicacy not to be missed.

From the entrance of the restaurant, you feel like this important person who has been ushered in by a 'funny-pointed-shoed' guy at the door. Excellent cuisine, and service.

Lovely mughlai food though very rich in its gravy and spices. You can't go wrong with the food . Good portions and warm and friendly staff and owners. The owner always comes to take orders personally and also suggests if you are not sure of what to eat. Must try.
