this place offers only veg dishes. All the paneer dishes are tasty especially paneer gulbadan(fancy name). Dont forget to try Sizzling brownie at the end of your meals. It will make your day. Saturday nights are full with college students.

I found the manager very rude and dismissive, the whole place seemed to be very stark despite the staff trying their best to be friendly and attentive. I ordered an Indian style pizza (eaten using cutlery) which tasted pretty average and I ended up with food poisoning shortly after which really turned me off going back.

The food is delicious. When it comes to the perfect mix of spices Crystal Bowl is my favourite choice. The colours of the food are marvellous and the place is cozy with good service from the staff. Perfect place for a fine out with family and friends.

Located about 1 km from BHU. Its a good place for Indian food. Small gathering can be organized. Good ambiance and service of staff but food slightly costly. A good bakery shop located just above it which gives discounts after 9 pm. Reachable with public transport. Not much parking space available.

The value for money is good for the food and ambiance, however due to over occupancy of staffs on weekends and rush, the service may be... More
