The food is good and reasonable and the overall experience is very average! A place to visit when you dont have anything cooked at home and you are craving for desi meal!

Menu includes Asian, Chinese & Pakistani dishes with variety of recipes from Bar B Q to curry items. Roasted lamb is their specialty and everyone like to order for this. Food were probably fresh. However, we faced parking problem as no space was available for parking. Washing area need lot of improvement. Environment also need due consideration as hygienic aspects... More

Always a delight to eat at Usmania, a tradition that started way back when we were kids and my maternal grandfather used to take us regularly. Been a while since I had food there but you can always count on it for great tasting local cuisine.

The roasted lamb is mind blowing. Not too dry but not too moist. Fried rice with chicken garlic. Soups are decent. All in all, a place where you go to eat without worrying about the presentation of the dish. Dim lighting may feel weird at first.
