The food was pretty sub-standard and the ambience was just about regular if one may say. Lack of quality options in Lucknow might draw people towards it but it isn't a place that I miss having moved away from there.

Ambiance is good and elegant... Enjoyed meals on two nights during my stay in Lucknow last month... Looking forward again for a visit..:)

Good food. We tried traditional chats of awadh and these are not disappointing. Service bit slow. Order fast moving items to save on time

We met for lunch at a family reunion. Some of us are vegetarians while others non-vegetarian. Being in Lucknow it is only appropriate that we selected dishes from this region.

The rates seemed quite reasonable. A must visit eatery during Lucknow visit. But what really leaves behind is a funny taste is that the... More
