We went there with our family for a Poila Baisakh Dinner. Food was awesome and variety was great. There was something for everyone. Lots of starters and desert. Mutton Biriyani was to die for. Only downside is that the ice creams were totally melted and too soft.

Drinks were ok and food was good. the tandoori fish was very good.... 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....

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 was melt in the mouth. All the... More

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.

Having had a good experience once returned with friends and family but was highly disappointed. 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
