This is a place for Indian Food with quality, service and reasonable pricing. The Biryani is a hit item specially the Mutton Biryani but you need to be in time i.e. before 8pm to get good food

The restaurant is located in the city centre. The mutton with basmati rice was delicious and rice was free flow. For those who prefer less oily version can try the Myanmar rice version.
