Lovely pani puri. They call it batasha. They serve it in a bowl made of a leaf. The taste is quite unique to Lucknow.The tikki's are also wildly famous and a lot of locals flock this place in the evenings. You will not be disappointed. The place is right on the main road, so no issues finding it.

Other then pani puri (gol gappe), one must try chole tikki. Chole is speciality of Lucknow, whether you put it in gol gappe of make tikki of it. One visit in the eve is sufficient for this place.

Such a small innocuous place and such a fan following - unimaginable! We were looking for the King of Chat based on a friends recommendation and to think that we were standing right beside it and still hunting for it should tell you how innocuous it is! Sharp at 5 pm he opens his counters and the line up of... More

Simplicity at its best. King of chat is not king definitely but surely it is a good chat compared to what is available in Lucknow. Pani batashe is too good but the person who gives it goes for frequent short breaks because he gets tired so most of the times in the evening you have to wait for him for... More
