There is so much of history to this place, and you get it in every bite you eat. While many old places like this have reduced quality over time; this one stands out amongst its peers delivering the same quality every time. A must for anyone for the quintessential Delhi food. The breakfast here is to die for.

If you want the actual mughlai food then that's the place u r looking for. Perfect food. Try Chicken/mutton korma with khamiri roti. DONT FORGET TO HAVE FIRNI. Rest, kebabs are just too good.
