Very ordinary look and feel, but simply great food. It stays in the mind for long. Went with friends, this place offers no class, but memorable Mughlai food. We had Mutton burrah kakabs, Chicken pasanda and Baqarkhani kulcha(bread from the tandoor) and their very special Mutton Biriyani.

With all the Hypes, Reviews, Reputation and Friends's Recommendation, we went out of our way to dine there with high hopes. It was equally disappointing. We ordered an appetizer chicken dish recommended by the wait staff, one chicken dish and one lamb dish for dinner. Acknowledge the Time magazine or the English media, it was not the food we enjoyed... More

Ordered chicken Burra, chicken Jehangiri, one more chicken curry and chicken briyani. They took approximately 40 mins to deliver. We liked Chicken Burra but others are disappointed. Both curry's frozen while eating and It seems they added dalda instead of oil. Chicken briyani is too bland and nothing to comment great about it. Overall, it's highly disappointed and not value...

Worst meal I had in India and by far the most expensive. Definitely not worth the extra money or your time - there are so many better options for a quarter of the price. The food was very average. The service was unpleasant at best - I found myself wondering if the staff were out in the kitchen spitting in... More

New world food joint in an old world location. Tasty dishes albeit with sweet flavour. Good change from the usual Khan Market, Habitat and Sundar Nagar food.

We went here on our last day in Delhi, full of anticipation for the excellent food we were expecting. It was by far and away the worst meal we had in India. My mutton passanda was just a plate of bones with sauce thrown over it. There was little to no meat on any of the bones - it was... More
