Mouth-watering Non-Veg foof at reasonable prices

I went to Dastarkhwan's outlet in Gomtinagar Colony, Lucknow. The tatste is as good as its outlet in Hazratganj area. Mughlai Parantha and Masala Chicken are my personal favourites

Biryani is very average with average rice instead of typical long grain rice Dastarkhwan serve their biryani with small pieces of chicken legs ,these chickens are under weight. Chicken... More

Dastarkhwan in Hazratganj was clearly the most popular of the restaurants we visited. On a Sunday night at 8:30 we had a fifteen minutes' wait. People who had reserved before coming seemed to have a slightly smaller wait. A large group who arrived without a reservation at the same time as us were requested to try their branch elsewhere.

This place has been a favorite of our family since last so many years. The food is very tasty be it kebab, biryani, sheermaal, tanduri or phirni. The place is always full of food lovers.

The food , though is good, however very oily and spicy for our palettes; the location is just awful. It is in a very congested locality , the place is not very clean and the staff not well trained.

There is no doubt that this place serves one of the best nin veg food especially biryani and kebab. I would rate biryani second best to Hyderabad but kebab are really good.gauloti kebab are must try.others are also great to taste. Though ambience is not great but value for money you spend.must visit when in Lucknow.

Nice Restaurant. We were there at 9.30 p.m. but still had to wait for more than 15 minutes for our turn. The non-veg dishes were too good. We tried Kababs and Birayani. Tried Parotta. It's completely different from what we get in Mumbai. Liked it very much. Also tried the Kheer and was good.
