Visited this establishment in a group for a celebration The food was reasonable and priced accordingly although lacking a wow factor Customers provide their own alcoholic beverages, the restaraunt only sells water and soft drinks OK for an occasional meal but I will not be a regular visitor

My daughter and I nipped in for a quick late dinner last week. The food and service was superb, deep rich flavours meltingly tender mutton and light perfectly cooked rices and breads. The bit that impresses me most is the prices of the soft drinks. As a none licensed restaurant you can take in your own alcohol. A lot of... More

I often go with a friend here but was treated to a meal with the family on Father's Day. As set menu covers all our favourite dishes, we chose to order vegetarian menu items and let the chef make a few special ones. Delicious and authentic Mughal style dishes wowed us all. Our 2 year old grandson loved watching the... More
