“A little oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Agra, as many of you will no doubt know, can be a 'bit' of a hassle, so this place was a great little nook to have a fantastic Lassi and a bite to eat. We chilled here for an hour or so, just watching the comings and goings of tourists and locals alike. It's really easy to find, cheap enough and I ate and drank with confidence. (well, as much confidence as you can in India:)
Enjoy

“Great food, friendly service, cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I had breakfast after visiting the Taj and lunch after visiting the Fort. Both werery good. Lunch waas particularly tasty. I had Mughaly Mutton andit was terrific. Banana Lassi is a must. The service was ver friendly and in spite the place being geared towards tourists prices were good. If fun to read all the writing on the wall whilst waiting for fod.

“I loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Right down the road from my hotel, no views of the Taj, the smallest kitchen you can imagine, yet turns out a delicious breakfast, friendly staff, made to order chai, very reasonable prices and you can write on the walls while you wait for your food.

“Hard to review in many ways!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Ok, tough one this one because for all this place is cheap and the food isn't terrible it also isn't great in many ways!

The restaurant itself is tiny and you could find yourself sat with anyone as the staff will cram people in your table which becomes very uncomfortable even if you're half way through a meal! It's kinda not on! If the tables were bigger maybe but not when some guy is pretty much sat on your knee!

The decoration is cool! It's kinda gone down the old "traveller joint" route which is sound for me!

The kitchen area however is a total shambles, one meal at a time sort of cooking and absolutely filthy!

I guess with this place you just have to realise its cheap, cheerful(ish) but nothing at all special... You can get more variety around and about!
