It was also listed as must visit place. What great food . The food is simply great. Never had better food in my lifefor a very reasonable price. The dishes have a perfect blend of condiments and one can feel the taste every ingredient. The galawati kebabs are great and so are the main dishes. The place can be visited... More

Best kebabs and parathas I've ever had, hands down. Nothing, including Tunday, beats the food at Dastarkhwan. It's like a party in the mouth. The kebabs and the Kali mirch chicken are to die for! I go here every time I go to Lucknow!

The biriyani in Dastarkhwan is just unputdownable. Perhaps my best ever. the rice, meat and the maslas are so well blended-in and very well cooked. Very nawabi- one just doesnt need to put that much effort to chew. Take a dollop and see it melting inside. :)

The place lives upto its mark of being one of the best places to eat non veg...Try kababs or their signature dish, everything better than the other and the service is fast as well. One problem ? the sitting arrangements aren't great...It's usually full so if you are expecting a fine dining restaurant, don't go ...but if you expect great... More

Vegetarian should not visit this place as they serve only one paneer dish everything else is for non-vegetarian. Other than galouti and parantha I don't find anything good in Lucknow, in Meerut you get equally good food. I find tundey kebabs better.
