Not so great food, OK ambience

I tried the dining facility at this restaurant twice. The food quality, which is the core of any restaurant, isn't that good in this one. Lucknow has better to offer for a choosy foodie traveller. Best avoided unless you are too hungry to walk around a bit in this locale. Ambience and service... read more

this restaurant is located on the main road of Hazratganj and you can really locate this restaurant from a distance because of the crowd and the sweets displayed. A typical place to enjoy the street food, this restaurant offers everything from golgappe, to chaat papdi, tikka etc. Lassi and Kulfi are quite famous. Not to forget the Gajar and moon... More

This restaurant complements well the royal cafe located at a stones throw distance from here. The best of all is chat snacks like aloo tikki chhole, matar tikka, samosa chhole etc...

From chats to chote bhature to thali, Moti Mahal's taste stand out. They have two sections when it comes to seating, the one on the ground floor is average but great if you are in hurry & not up for frills but if you want a proper sit down place then move on 1st floor.

Went in & order some food which was abit heavy on pocket considering the quality of the food what was served. The rotis could have been softer but were edible nonetheless. Otherwise, the food was very tasty, service was upto expectation & the service boys were very well mannered.

An old restraurant in the heart of Hazzarat ganj, having lots of mouth water foodies. Cutlet like Kolkatta's kabirazi cutlet is one of the attraction I liked here

After i was coming back from Dastarkhwan, i tried hot... More
