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.

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

First a confession - Dastarkhwan opened before my eyes when I was a teen. Initially it only used to serve Espresso Coffee and later on started the Mughlai cuisine. This has been my favourite restaurant till date and I swear by its dishes across the country. The best dishes it serves are - Butter Chicken and Chicken Masala. The preparation... More

Every time I visit the city of Nawabs, I make sure To go and eat at the Dastarkhwan and have never been disappointed. Biryani, chicken kali mirch and the paratha are the best. Paratha from this place is far better than Tundeys. The Lal bagh branch is comparable to best in business from an ambience pov. Food is exceptional.

Go here for a fantastic Biriyani experience. We went in the afternoon. It was empty. We ordered Mutton Biriyani, Gulauti Kebab, Mutton Bhuna and Rumali Roti. All 4 items were first class in taste. The ambience was clean and service very good.
