Walked in for lunch on Sunday & lucky to find a table. Within a while, there were more than 15 people waiting for a table. We ordered the Galawati kebab, the tandoori sabzi (cauliflower & broccoli) for starters. My wife loved the tomato shorba that she had. The Galawati kebabs seemed unusually bigger in size(4 pieces) & the veg starter... More

Went for Lunch. Found it to be some thing different. Like the drinks menu is on a wine bottle and the food menu is given like a tabloid new paper. the decor was contemprory. However I found the seating, which was quite low, to be very uncomfortable. Could not relax and enjoy my beer and food. Lighting too needs to... More

Love the Nalli Nihari and the Raang of this place. Tandoori food is really good. End with Kulfi. A cannot miss for Non Vegetarian food lovers.

Well, if you love Biriyanis, then this is a place you must visit at all costs. Not only is the taste authentic, it is mind blowing. The service is great, the ambiance really good. The only grudge is an slightly off beat location. Prices are on the higher side too

I must have eaten at this place for around 30 times now. My must stop if I visit bangalore (which I do most times in a month). Many a times I am accompanied by my counterparts from US and I always recommend taking them to this place. All the 30 or so times I visited, here is my fixed order,... More

This is the place to be. Cool and funky interior. Traditional uniforms on the staff. Really good, well made traditional north Indian food. On the weekends there is quite a queue so you better book ahead, or come on a weekday. Try the biryani, it´s a treat.

Well located on Infantry road near all the shopping on Commercial street. The food is good and the Biryanis are par excellence ( if you can get them). The place is overbooked and waiting outside is very inconvenient. They normally refuse to give firm bookings so it's difficult if you are hosting a party or a big group. The biryanis... More

One of the best BJN Group's initiative to bring the afgani khaana to the mouth of Bangaloreans.... I had the best ever Mutton Briyani in Bangalore and its still the No 1 for me since last 3.5 years. One must also shorba though all the dishes are "Signature dishes"... Love being there with my family and friends
