Seems this restaurant is overhyped. The food was good but not something out of the world. There are better places in Lucknow to eat. AC is switched off and we had to survive on a fan in the heat.So it became a bit uncomfortable for us.

without any doubt this joint at indra nagar serves the best lucknavi avadhi food in town not to be missed bhuna ghost, chicken masala with ulta tawa paratha & chicken biryani. Has a great ambience with good interiors & family athmosphere.

The non veg there is one of the best in town. The vegetarian may suffer there as the veg food is not that good. But non veg is really really awesome.

Did not expect the restroom to be in this bad condition. Didn feel like eating there after i went to the restroom. Putting a blind fold to that, food is good. We had Gelawati kabab and Shami kabab together with mughlai parantha. Taste was awesome. Meal for 2 costs aprox 600 INR. Personally i feel its a bit overpriced.

Had some awesome tandoori chicken and biryani . Do go early for dinner since the place is very popular with the locals and getting a table is a challenge
