good north indian food

Good north Indian food | A good place to eat out with family | Ambience is good but not upto "that" level | Value for money | Always "house full" so do remember to book in advance !

The food was really very good indeed and the service first class.At odds with some of the hotel service generally . The Head Chef Mr Shahnawaz Qureshi took a direct interest and made for a fine evening with traditional musical accompanyment

Saffron Outlet in JW Marriott recently started on Saturday night a Lunch Thali between 12-3 It was so delicious. Main thing is The Chef Mr. Qureshi is from Lucknow and his previous Generations are also in same Business. Nice Ambience. Piped Music on Saturday afternoon and classical instrumental music on all evenings.

The food is average in my opinion. Not the best indian food I have eaten in a 5 star restaurant. Found the mutton biryani very average. Hardly any flavors . Even the Gulati kebabs were average. I have eaten better kebabs elsewhere. I ate here a I was staying at the hotel but will not repeat
