The restaurant is not very large, and since it overlooks the very large Lotus cafe its identity gets lost and it really does not stand out as it should. It is a simple setup and you would not identify it as an Indian restaurant unless you glance at the open kitchen, where you will see the copper handis and a... More

Visited last year when I was blown away by the food and service, but I have to be honest, the food wasn't as outstanding and the service was very slow. The half chicken was really bad so steer clear of that and the dish I had wasn't anything special, nice but not like last time. The Italian was the stand... More

Located in Oberoi Mall. The hospitality extended has touch of warmth and personal touch. Quality of food very good can offer specially cooked to your taste/requirement like less spicy non spicy etc.In case it happens to be special occasion like anniversary/birthday etc their entire team participates in wishing/ clapping/singing that gives great feel.

Well, am non vegetarian but visited here for my vegetarian friends. I visited other veg restaurants too comparatively this restaurant has nothing much special but still it's expensive. Food is tasty but again my question is what's the difference between yours and others. Please lower your menu price.

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.
