Lucknow food is so popular & was looking forward to sample some when we visited Royal Cafe. We ordered Paneer Tikka with naan, chicken Biryani and chocolate shakes. Everything was average. Service was good and Staff was very nice.

Great food, excellent services at reasonable prices. We asked our waiters for some specialty Muglai cuisine and they did indeed deliver! We would return. The only thing I wish is that the restaurant would serve beer and wine. A good Kingfisher would have been a nice accompaniment.
