Food is good, but too much waiting time. Also not much spacious. It's time to shift to a more spacious location and service time should be reduced.

The restaurant serves great food, however the time for preparation is too long. The staff are not interested in taking the order and the service is poor. Limited space is also a problem. Can be avoided.

Good restaurant with plenty of place for vehicle parking, albeit on the road. But, situated in a bustling part of the city, right out the hustle and bustle.

The place is off the main road and traffic. Set up in a small place, the seating is little cramped and ambience that of a conventional hotel. The menu offers limited standard variety of dishes. The quality of food is good, sumptuous and well prepared.

Also Malai Kofta, Veg Kofta (spicier), veg biryani and fried rice are great. Some service boys can be a bit annoying (some stare at... More
