We visit this place quite often. The biryani is just awesome... The galawati kababs are just matchless ... U can't get better taste than this... To top it all... The chicken masala is mouth watering... Not to forget the wonderful butter chicken... A must visit place for all foodies

Been there for lunch during first week of Sep'14. Ambience was quite good (in fact better than our expectation) and a very helpful guard to take care of your parking needs. We started with Gilouti and Seekh kebabs with parantha. While the seekh was good, gilouti kebabs were just ok. Moving over to main course the Chicken Biryani and Dal... More

First a confession - Dastarkhwan opened before my eyes when I was a teen. Initially it only used to serve Espresso Coffee and later on started the Mughlai cuisine.

Every time I visit the city of Nawabs, I make sure To go and eat at the Dastarkhwan and have never been disappointed. Biryani, chicken kali mirch and the paratha are the best. Paratha from this place is far better than Tundeys. The Lal bagh branch is comparable to best in business from an ambience pov. Food is exceptional.

Go here for a fantastic Biriyani experience. We went in the afternoon. It was empty. We ordered Mutton Biriyani, Gulauti Kebab, Mutton Bhuna and Rumali Roti. All 4 items were first class in taste. The ambience was clean and service very good.

First time visit and totally impressed with the quality of food. Moment you step in, aroma of food will increase your hunger. Service is bit slow but once your food is served you will not realize that you were waiting since long. Rogan josh (Mutton dish), succulents kebabs and Mutton Biryani is a must to have and not to mention... More

It is quite famous for its food. If you are fond of non veg than don't miss it. If possible book your table in advance or you have to wait. The only problem which common with all north Indian cuisine is some items are quite oily.
