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.

This place is close to Sarovar portico which i have always stayed during all my visits to Lucknow. The food here is average and does not strike a chord.Visited this place couple of times and the food was just ok.Ordered Brain Shahi Masala once and it was sweetish in taste.

The Royal Cafe is conveniently located on Hazratganj main road and you can see the cook making the chat in the section just outside the main restaurant. The pani puri, the aloo tikki chaat was great too, but for us it... More

The restaurant is located in front of Saharaganj Mall one of busiest place of Lucknow. It is a busy restaurant with good ambience and price also not very high. The food served here was really tasty and was in good amount. Chinese food here was really good. The staff was also polite and humble. Good place to visit in Lucknow.
