We were invited by friends and pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of their Lamb Biryani with succulent lamb in a perfect melange of spices, masala, basmati rice with the right fragrance, aroma, taste and portion! I had four sumptuous helpings till I could eat no more. They get a whopping 10. There were several other dishes ordered but the portions... More

I usually order biryani and one other side dish (leg or breast) here. It is "usually" sufficient for two people. There is only one/two instances where I was able to finish full plater of biryani by myself( too much quantity). Back in 2007 when I first tried this place, biryani was in short supply and often would run out of... More

Not much to look at inside, but you'll see the long line for to-go good-- there's always a wait, and once you taste the food, you'll know why. The Palak Paneer is always excellent, queema naan is great, choley is delicious, anything lamb. Even the naan is great. All of the food has great spicy flavors. Give yourself enough time... More

Tried this one for the second time. If you are in a mood for some tasty kabab and Biriyani, this is the place. Didn't like the ambiance and sitting arrangement. Observed that there is a series of parcels to go. That's the best option I think. We tried Boti kabab, Sheekh Kabab and Lamb Stew this time. They were good.

Amazing biryani! Chicken kadai, Chicken/paneer tikka masala and palak paneer are really good. The Naan is really the best! The ambiance is not great but food is tasty as hell!.

This is the kind of restaurant that is frequented by traditional Indians and Pakistanis. The food is quite authentic and tasty. I enjoyed the Lamb Biryani although be aware that it contained several bones. The Tandoori Chicken was very tasty and tender. And the Mango Iassi (yoghurt shake) was excellent. The pricing for all items was very reasonable. However, I'm... More

I have been to this place twice. I must say that the dishes taste quite authentic (good gravy flavor for meat dishes). We ordered Butter chicken and Chicken Korma. The Chicken korma was absolutely delicious. The butter chicken was also quite tasty. In the past we have ordered Tandoori shrimp and found the dish to be well seasoned. I would... More

This restaurant has some exceptionally delicious non-veg curries & tandoor items. We luved the Kadhai Chicken here. Lamb stew was not for my taste - may be some people may like it. All this is waste as the service here is pathetic & you have to wait so much time to even place the order. In short, do take parcels... More

Had heard of this place from a number of people and so gave it a try. Came out with mixed opinion. Their tandoori chicken is very good - a very heady mix of marination, tenderness and juiciness. This item is strongly recommended. The lamb biryani was however a letdown for us. We were given to understand that this is one... More
