This is a higher middle class fine dining joint with Lucknawi Mughlai food speciality. It is reasonably clean.

This is a place which lives up to and far exceeds the hype. One should not miss this place, and is possibly the best awadhi food I've ever had. Please ensure you have the Mutton Shami Kababs.

Just go to dastarkhwan for their chicken masala. It's lovely, have it with a paratha and if you're still hungry order biryani. The aroma that lingers in the press club lane suddenly increases your appetite.

We went there..when we were so hungry. It was a good decision to go there. Nice ambience .but please don't use plastic plates @Gomtinagar branch..it's not a fast food restaurant! It spoils the look . Kebab and Biryani was delicious and the pieces were juicy and well-cooked. I just love the taste of parathas.

Thank uttama s
