This is one of the best places to go to if you are fond of Awadhi cuisine. The portions are very good and the price is reasonable. An added bonus is that it is well maintained and clean, unlike most other restaurants of Lucknow of this standard.

Dastarkhwan is one of the best places in Lucknow to sample traditional Awadhi cuisine. The taste of the food is excellent and the portions are good enough for at least 2 people. We went there on two occasions on weekdays and both times we had to wait, so you can imagine the popularity of this restaurant. Highly recommended !!!!!!!!!

If you're in Lucknow and are a hard core non-vegetarian, then do visit Dastarkhwan for a fantastic and superb non-veg food...The Chicken Masala is a must try along with boti kebab...A value for money and a real treat for the food lovers...a must visit

place around five kilometres from railway station, small place as we had to wait for fifteen mins to get a place, it's worth waiting for the tasty food served here

We ordered Burra, Mutton Briyani and Veg Biryani. The food is EXCELLENT! The only put off was a bit of lack of hygiene. such as cleanliness of the glass tumblers used for water etc. Very close to Mankameshwar. *Suggestion :- Please do not eat Non-veg food before visiting the temple as it may hurt religious sentiments*

It was 45 degrees centigrade and the relief of getting authentic Awadhi food with the comfort of air conditioning, was definitely welcome and comforting. We ordered a Mutton Biryani - a choice well suggested by the server, the meat was well marinated and blended with perfectly cooked rice. The Pineapple with curd (raita) and a green salad were the perfect... More
