This is attached to the hotel peerless inn we are staying. The ambience is great. The food is satisfactory. We took rice, tadka dal, kulchas, Alu jeera and curd. All satisfactory. The service is neither too quick nor very late. The pricing is excessive

Returned to the Aheli after a good 20 years hoping that it was as good as I had experienced when it first opened (back in 1993?) Sadly it was not to be, the menu has not changed much but having Dhoti wearing waiters is not...More
