Excellent Tandoori / Indian Food

We went to the Mani Square Restaurant. It has the jungle theme. The place is quite dark. You can see a lot of animal and bird figures in the forest type ambiance The accompanying music adds to the theme. We ordered Tandoori Khumb, Kakori Kabab and Lasooni Jhinga for starters. The kakori kabab... read more

It was an excellent experience when myself with my family had a buffet lunch in the machaan. My table was booked and no hassle to get there directly. right from the soups to the dessert it was awesome. The waiters are too much cordial to serve. I would like to have lunch there again very soon....

Went there with family... Kids and couples.. Great place and offers variety in food. Kids enjoy due to jungle theme .. We ended up clicking many silly photos and staff was very cooperative.

The service quality has gone down, the food is just about okay and when compared vis-a-vis the price it is sure to cause heartburn. Firstly we (7 of us) had to wait and then respond to waving our hands to get the attention of someone... More

I wanted to write a review about this long time back. I've been to many Machaans,everything is fine. But just wanted to mention that the design of the spoons and forks are very awkward. Please change it immediately. Very difficult to hold them while eating.

I visited the place with my wife last Sunday and we were really impressed. The jungle atmosphere was as expected, interesting; but the food was really awesome too. We were half full, so we ordered only Basamati Rice and Raan with Chicken Shorba and Jaljeera. The Raan was just awesome! Shorba and Jaljeera was also good. The time to prepare... More
