Ducked in a corner of an old alley, this joint serves the best Lucknowi (Gulati) Kebabs and Yoghurt Drinks. it has its share of faithful customers and is crowded during the weekends. Limited Menu item but you will praise them once you leave the place. Just behind Karachi Darbar after Al Khan bridge going towards wahda..

Delicious mouth watering kabab with paratta and tasty lassi. It was an awesome experience with my friends first time that I went with my family again.

Handful of dishes, but each is worth trying. Excellent Taste, Value for money, gets crowded after 8pm and this is when the service deteriorates. Weekend is an even bigger struggle. Handful of Staff try their best to manage the non ending Hot paratha orders and the repeated onion and refill chutney demand. In all these years have seen the interior... More

Unless you hear about this pace, you will never venture in this. The decor is completely missing , and the outer look feels deserted. But once you are in, and order the Lucknow kababs with parathas , you cannot stop eating. Flat , perfectly made the kababs are a treat. The sweet lassi is highly recommended along with the meal....

Tucked in a corner of Sharjah, this place is a gem of a dining place for authentic lucknowi kebab lovers. The place is popular through word of mouth as the place is located of Al Wahda Road, and until you know the place, you won't find it. I have been eating here for the past 22 yrs or so, and... More

A non descriptive restaurant but once you eat here , you are sure to return. Located off Al wahda street unless you have heard about it, you wouldn't try it. Famous for their lucknowi kebab, mince ground very very fine with minimum spice, flattened and cooked slowly on a tawa. perfect with paratha, however it is neither oily or maida.... More

Great food, especially lucknowi kabab and paratha. Lassi was damn awsome, worth trying it. Location was ok, ambience was not very good. Always crowded, especially on Weekends.
