Went to have a Dinner with Family in Gomti Nagar Branch. Simply Terrible experience. The service was very poor. We had to tell the bearers to get adequate cutlery for the group. And what followed was another Horror! There were Hairs( Human, I presume)to be detected in the Mutton Biriyani and the Curry had a piece of Staple Pin. Please... More

Hi Folks, This place is one of the best for Non-Veg lovers..try Gilaati Kababs( 4 pieces for 100 Bucks) and Half plate Pepper chicken (Half- 6 pieces and Full-12 pieces). You will just love it. With Rumaali Rotis it tastes awesome. Weekends is jam packed out here till 10:30 or by 11 p.m. Try also Biryani if you have space... More

Nice and light biryani is the specialty of this place I believe. Hardly any oil on your hands after you finish. But I've tasted better kebabs elsewhere. Be ware of their quantity though. They serve huge whopping platefuls.

We tried out the very famous biriyani and it sure didn't disappoint us. My only problem was that I personally found it a bit salty, though my partner didnt. We also tried their chicken kebabs and they were an absolute delight.

Good for all Non Veg items , esp the Chikan Masala. Avoid the Kebabs. Their is a good selection of Indian Sweets, be sure to try one of them

Ate at both the Lalbagh one and the China Bazar one. Both were fantastic. Maybe the latter better! I even packed enough to carry on a flight for a small party back home! it was soooo good! Must have the Giloti Kebabs.

We got our dinner packed here & really enjoyed the food. Chicken kali mirch was really good as a starter - it is dry. Tried only mutton biryani along with it. It was also good but I liked my starter more. The seating was limited looking at the popularity of the place. The staff was really helpful & courteous. The... More

Been there for lunch during first week of Sep'14. Ambience was quite good (in fact better than our expectation) and a very helpful guard to take care of your parking needs. We started with Gilouti and Seekh kebabs with parantha. While the seekh was good, gilouti kebabs were just ok. Moving over to main course the Chicken Biryani and Dal... More
