“Nice but expensive food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Super food - awadhi. The kakori kebab was real melt in the mouth. The roti was nice. Food was very good, the service not so.

“Good food but open kitchen an eye sore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

The food was good but the only drawback was the open kitchen where the utensils were all burnt from outside and it was not at all clean.The urge to eat goes after looking into the kitchen.

Another thing was the bearer serving food was constantly over phone even while serving.

“The best place for Dum cooking fans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place has 2 listing in Trip advisor. It is confusing, how can they be amalgamated in one place? Moderator shall take a look.
We visited the restaurant last week for a family dinner. The décor is simple but graceful with a view of the live kitchen. The food was a mixed experience. The kababs are very good. Try the Mutton kakori kababs served with the small tawa parathas , they are just fantastic. Also the Fish kabab was also nice. The dum biryani has a very subtle taste, quite different than the regular Awadhi biryani served in other places. The mirchi ka salan goes very well with the biryani. The Raita served with it was also very nice.

“Tastes good, looks excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

It's good, the whole deal. The breads taste fantastic, the kebabs taste just right. I wouldn't know how authentic they taste for I've never tasted authentic mughlai served for royalty neither have I ever visited the north western province. But if we are talking about the mughlai food you generally get in town, this one fares on the far better side.
