A good choice for North Indian food

I tried the fish ajwain kebab and chicken lashuni kebab which were both very good. The dum ghosht biriyani was a big let down.

Located close to Pantaloons in Gariahat, this restaurant has two sections - one serving North Indian food and the other specializing in Chinese cuisine. We tried the Chinese section and found the food quality pretty average. The decor is nice, though, and the service good.

Ambiance and decoration is good .serve is also good. Food quality is really good and price wise also not so expensive. Dessert items are very special.

I would like to fondly remember this restaurant as my first "pub" as I had my 1st experience of drinks here, but too bad the staff here thought me to be under-age. The food is good. The ambience is funny, full Bollywood style posters & wall paintings.

Spicy, tasty and great service. I like the bollywood theme and the ambience. I avoid sitting on the ground floor as its dimly lit, I prefer the mezzanine deck upstairs. Chicken butter masala is the best and butter naan. :-D They serve alcohol, decently priced. Food is moderately priced.
