Brilliant Lucknow Kababs.

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... read more

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.

The food they serve here is really tasty and always fresh. Locknowi kababs , Seek kababs and Sweet lassi are the best. Service is fast and staff is friendly.

The Lukhnawi Kebabs are very tasty and can hardly be found in another place in Dubai .The menu is limited to a few dishes but the quality is very good. The restaurant is located in the industrial area of Sharjah and is difficult to locate . They have limited seating capacity and may require waiting on the weekends.

Don't go by the ambience.....but real mouth watering food. I'm a foodie myself and would rate this the best Indian joint ( only by food) in UAE. Had been a fan for the last 9 years.

The menu is limited however each dish on the menu is just delicious and takes the food experience to another level. The parathas which are soo thin and crispy dip it down with the chaatni....simply amazing.... Justice is to go and try it and let the food do the talking!!!
