Great Punjab restaurant near Dadar TT is one of the best places to eat Punjabi. The place is also soaked in history as it is over 60 years old and has seen pre-independence era as well. Some of the must try dishes are signature Dal Makhani, Paneer Tikka and Butter Chicken

The good was delicious here and with a little guidance we were able to order a selection of starters and mains to share. I would recommend the veg platter, mutton bhunna and roti selection. Cocktails were just ok and some tasted a little artificial.

This happens to be one of my favourite eateries in Mumbai for a long time mainly for mughlai/Indian dishes. Tandoori chicken is the best here and the chicken literally melts in your mouth. There are succulent kebabs and fish tikkas/kebabs/fries that will be remembered for long. Of course, there are items like sarso da saak, kali dal to go with... More

We really enjoy the variety of food.The place is well maintained but the food was average for the price charged.Their signature chutney along with peanuts and papads is too good.Chicken gol gappas are a must try along with fish kurkure !!

We family members had our lunch at this restaurant A mid sized restaurant and a bar on the rear side of the hotel. The ambiance is nice..They provide Mogul, chinese, north indian and jain food. I tried north indian non veg dishes. All are cooked and served in 15 to 20 mints time. A great value for money.
