An Indian cuisine restaurant that re-defines the genre. Chef Himanshu and Chef Qureshi have outdone themselves with the sublime offerings of Mutton Galouti kebab, Dal-e-khas (available everywhere but once you eat it here, you will know how delectable it is meant to be), Nalli nihari (a lamb shank offering from the royal kitchens of Lucknow), multi grain lacchha paratha, Gosht...

High quality of chicken, mean and paneer. The tandoori selections are highly recommended. Lots of veg and non veg options, good bread/roti selections and attentive staff.

Good Indian food, but not the best in town, Try their hotel buffet instead. Service is mediocre compared to what it used to be.

I had the pre-fix of the seafood combination, i believe, and it was amazing! I remember being $30-$40 for a course menu and I loved every single bit of it. The seafood was extremely fresh and I thought that traveling to other parts of India, the food was pretty authentic as well. The ambiance is nice and after traveling to... More

The food is very traditional and extremely good. We visited the restaurant as a business dinner and our guests loved it. Granted the dishes were excellent. The starters were nice - the veg galouti made from mushrooms was melt in your mouth. Everyone swore by the kebabs. There was also a particular style of paratha that was just delicious. However...

Went there for breakfast with friends and family. The spread was lavish & had the usual live counters of any 5 star- egg, poori, dosa, paratha, waffle etc. Though I received my omlette which was not as requested - ie egg white omlette, i thought the services was good and quick. The ambience was nice. I had some keema pau... More
