Located in the ubiquitous Hazratganj, Royal Cafe is one of the best restaurants in Lucknow. The basket chaat that you get here is amazing in taste and the chaat portion is such that it can be shared between 3 people. I have had lunch also inside the restaurant and everything had a great taste and flavor. This is one of... More

Search for all varieties of Chat ends here, look no further and go no further. Impossible to eat everything at one go, so multiple visits required. Best is they have food for all palates and moods, so just step in and order. Surprise is they special menu for fasting religious festivity, so you know where to look for falahari ...

From the looks of it just a normal shop until one tastes the chaat Basket... Yummy basket and plenty in quantity.. I had to skip dinner so much is the quantity. Im told it's one of the oldest chains in the city. The Paani Puri is also excellent.. don't miss the chaat Basket if you in the vicinity.

One in hazratganj proper and other around 1 km on Shahnajaf road opposite Saharaganj Mall. Royal cafe is one of the famous chain of restaurants in Lucknow. A regular visitor can vouch for the taste... More
