Visited place last week for dinner, based on recommendations from tripadvisor and from locals. Great food. I am NOT fan for non veg food... But, the food here was awesome. Shami kabab were soooo soft and delicious..........biryani too was good.. as was made less spicy-- as per my request...... Nice decor, ambiance.. looks very popular joint in the city.

After reading a lot about this restaurant on Trip advisor ... We gave a shot . There was a wait when we reached but it was okay. Food was not up to the mark ... Was not impressed cause they have only one washroom for male and female ... Very dirty

It is quite famous for its Non-veg cuisines. Always thronged with public and many non vegetarian option to choose from. Prices are average but dont expect a formal dining. It is just a small fast food outlet!
