Well my first visit to the famous Dastarkhwan last week was disappointing. Its simply an over-rated joint and I regretted not heading to Tundey Kababi instead (which was basically because we were confused about the real one). Onto the food, the kebabs were ordinary, the gravy items too oily. Galauti - 3/5 (nothing special) Shammi - 2/5 (half burnt) Ulte... More

Dastarkhwan has opened number of branches in lucknow but the most popular among them is the original one which is situated near Tulsi Theater. They cook one of the best Chicken Masala, Galawati Kebab and Biryani, try their chicken biryani which is better then mutton one. Servings are good and ample for two. If you want to sit and enjoy...

Dastarkhwan is the best food joint in Lucknow. They have 4 centers across Lucknow, but the one near press club is the best. Nice ambience, awesome lip smacking food. We had Kebab plater which contains Sikh kebab, Burrah Kebab, Boti Kebab and Galwaboti Kebab. We loved Galwaboti kebab so much that we ordered one extra plate of that. We also... More

Tasty food great prices, but the restaurant is dirty and surrounding is not clean. If only the place was cleaner would be fantastic Must try the Shami kebab and the tawa chicken

Don't expect a fine dine restaurant experience at the Dastarkhwan at the UP Press Club on china bazar lane, next to the Tulsi theatre complex. This road-side eatery serves "THE BEST" chicken masala and awadhi paratha in Lucknow- and these are unique tastes of modern day Awadhi cuisine. Most families would get these packed and enjoy at home, though more... More
