“well appointed restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

very helpful staff with good advice on menu. Most food good but seriously let down by very tough lamb on main dish. May have been an unfortunate slip as rest of food was lovely and other diners seemed to be relishing their choices. Restaurant was spotlessly clean and very modern. If the lamb had been good would have given five stars.

“Large menu, clean food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The kids had butter chicken and naan, we had mushrooms and mutton. We did not fall sick eating here. We all ate well, food was fresh and good.

The tables and chairs though clean, were not up to my picky standards. Many establishments in India (and elsewhere) pay good attention to food preparation, but don't have the same levels of hygiene in the seating areas. I always carry clorox wipes from home and wipe the tables, chairs, and the floor under the table before the kids are seated. I did that in PoS as well, and we were fine.

“Nice food but a little costly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Food was tasty. The portions were large. A good place to have non-veg if you have a group 4+ foodies.

“A good Indian food, reasonable price, restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We were hosted at ITC Mughal, in Agra, and we were adviced by our tour operator to go to this restaurant. Getting to the restaurant from ITC Mughal is just crossing the road. The ambiance is not superb, but you can find a variety of Asian options. We went for a selection of chicken and lamb curries, and all of them were great. Helping staff and good price (at least for Westerners). To be recommended.

“A safe choice for tourists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We had a great lunch there, the waitor t'ils us everytime the dish was going to be hot n Spicy. Was not lucky with what I chose some grilled chicken with veggie kebab (hated those) but my friend who took the butter paneer had more luck and I loved it
