We went to this place with big big expectations. The ratings is good, so we had our hopes up. When we came, we really didnt get any vaitors, just two three guys who asked the same questions and seemed a little confused. I asked if they had a menu after a while, and one of them said yes. Then after... More

I had higher expectations after reading reviews. Food was spicy and tasty but average when compared to other restaurants in the city of similar theme. Quite expensive as well. About Rs4500 for 2 adults with drinks.

True to its name, the Great Kabab factory churns out some of the best Kababs that you can get for your taste buds. I had a foreigner guest with me and he too freaked out on the food here. Simple menu of all you can eat with a variety of Kababs, assortments, juices and one of the best butter milk... More

Spicy course. One of a kind food. Despite having the seafood course, which was quite expensive for a meal in India, what I enjoyed most was the small ounce size popsicle that was delivered to the table to clean the palette after each course. Amazing unique and tasty food.

I did not stay at this hotel , but I did dine there , in what is effectively an extension of the lobby . The first course of baby ( vegetarian ) Samosas with Tamarind Sauce was unexceptionable ( perhaps a trifle stodgy ) , and the main course ( prawns ) excellent - BUT the accompanying naan was AWFUL...

Interesting experience and a good opportunity to try some new Indian tastes. The flavors were great and the service was excellent but the bill was huge. More than twice what we have sent in any other restaurant in India. We even had free drink coupons from the hotel. Kids drinks were R300 each which really added up. Total bill was... More

The food here was good, but it is too expensive. Vegetarian dinner for four of us cost 6k without drinks. Came out feeling ripped off.
