We stopped here for lunch on a Sunday while browsing the nearby Daryagunj book market during our 4-day stay in Delhi. OMG - the butter chicken is out of this world!

Must have place for authentic punjabi food. Spent an evening with a friend and it was worth doing so. The decor of the place is little old and service slow. Food equalizes these minor hiccups though.

We were so exhausted and hungry in evening (ate one bread and tea), went MM for dinner. They serves classis Mughlai food. We ate our heart full, seems bit costly but worth it. I would love to visit this place again and again. Satisfied with the quality and quantity.

We went to the Moti Mahal in Rajouri Garden and it was deserted. Nevertheless, service was slow. The "platter" consisted mostly of raw vegetables, with a only a tiny serving of curry. It was tasty, but it was just not good enough.
