We were rather unlucky as the basket chaat was burnt. We were charged exorbitantly as we decided to eat indoors in their restaurant.

While studying there were a bunch of pupil from different areas but one thing was voiced unanimously from those who hailed from Lucknow. "praises about the basket chat from somewhere (somewhere as I did not remember it precisely)" On my recent work trip to Lucknow while hopping on from one meeting to another, happen to saw some baskets (something like...
