We visited the one at lalbaugh. The place is compact, clean and the staff attentive... Prices very moderate. Chicken kebabs is a must try apart from Lucknowi biriyani. Even the allo zeera was quite good. Enjoyed the dinner

The restaurant is well decorated, clean and hygienic. The staffs are frindly and proactive. This is one of the best place in Lucknow for non veg lovers. Try parathas and kababs, chicken starters, chicken biryani and chicken masala. Also try deserts The ambience of the place is impressive.
