Awesome chaat!

Had aloo tikki and basket chaat on two visits. Awesome chaat! Prices may look on a bit higher side for roadside chaat, but totally worth the buck with the huge quantity and superb taste.

Simply its the best place in the town. The taste is great. Whatever you try, food is the best. Staff is professional and service is good. Veg dishes are mouthwatering. And the non veg dishes worth a try too. Ample parking, but on festivals and holidays may have to wait for long to find the place.

They serve excellent food. Dum biryani is really special. Overall it's a nice place to eat. Of late they had made this rule of not packing the left overs which I think is just not right. A request to the management please remove the flowerpot from the table don't know why you have filled it with coloured water it screw... More

This place is hyped. We had food in their mall outlet in the Sahara Ganj Mall food court. They were using their hands without gloves for placing a few food items in the Thali. Not very clean & hygienic. The food also is not of a superior quality, it is just average. Don't understand why it is so hyped.

If your taste buds are tickled everytime you think of spicy food, and if everytime your mouth waters when you want to grab a taste of the "paani batasha" then you cannot afford to not be here. Apart from the four types of "paani" they serve with the "batasha ", also try out the basket chat here.

Family atmosphere. Most clients on Sunday came with family/kids for lunch. Place was full. Some were birthday party. Food was very good. Fast service. Portion of food for Full plate etc was good enough for 4 people. However only North Indian/Lucknow dish. No South Indian available.

The place was a typical restaurant with good ambience. The best part was the food. Great on taste and portion as well. We ordered only one roti for each, thinking that we will order as we go so that we get served hot. But the size was much more than our experience else where. The service was quick and served...
