Not as good as they were 10-15 years back but still leaps n bounds ahead of other chat walas in Lucknow. The true KING of chat in Lucknow. Favourite items - Paani k batashe + Matra.

Would definitely recommend this place for a taste of local chaat. However, go there early by 7:00 p.m. atleast so you are assured of a full menu. By the time we went at 8:00 p.m. most of the stuff was over and only aloo tikkis and pani puri was available, which was very tasty.
