Not a QUALITY JOINT

Food could be moderately tasty not at all to say WOW . Never got a DHABA feeling. I presume, QUALITY of the raw materials and all ingredients need to be PROPER to attract QUALITY FOODIES.Request to use artificial colors .

The dish served is not of the ethnic taste. The flavour is missing . Its not up to the mark for the Normal dal and Roti , hence forget about other dishes. Moreover the cost is also high.Overall not worth it

I can confirm that I had not had good Punjabi food elsewhere in Chennai. Service is great, you will love the old photographs there of yesteryear movie stars and the songs as well. Right from Jeera Pani to the Gaajar Halwa, my entire family liked the food there. Enjoy!
