“OK breakfast bad dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

we had breakfast hear before leaving for city tour, Aalu parantha's were great served with achar and ketchup. My family loved it ...

So we came back here again for dinner in the night. Sadly our expectations crashed down the road.

Tawa roti and raita were the only good.

Daal fry was sad watery paste with fried onion on it, but it was great compared to malai kofta, which had for some reason coconut gravy and taste like washing powder.

Adding to that, the lady on the counter was rude, but service in general was fast.

“Great for North Indian food lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

This small non descrete restaurant is situated in the basement of a complex on the PT road. We checked it out seeing the recommendations here. The ambience and the service are just average. But the food is yummy. We had aloo paratha and fried rice. The food was hot and really good. We liked the paratha so much so that we ordered a second plate. Would definitely recommend the place if you like North Indian food ..

“Long wait for a good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Food: Excellent North Indian cuisine with a distinctive Gujarati flavour. Service is quick; my order took 15 min when the restaurant was packed to capacity. The pricing is reasonable.
Ambience: Not much to write home about. Seating is cramped but clean.
Waiting time: Biggest drawback. Average waiting time is anywhere between 20 min to one hour.
