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.

Having Kebabs at this place is favorable because they serve it hygienically and in a soothing atmosphere. you can enjoy the food along with your family and friends without wasting your precious time for other famous joints located in Overcrowded old city area.

If you are a kebab fan, this is the place you should visit. The kebabs just melt in your mouth. Ensure you go there on an empty stomach because you just cannot stop eating once you start.

Not at all a "oh let me grab my napkin" type joint but they certainly know how to cook & cook awesomely good.On any given weekend you'll have to wait for your table, its very popular. Full marks for food, portion size, &... More
