“Nice selection of delicious food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Food was great, they serve the ubiquitous Indian Chinese Food as well as local staples and some Nepali and Thai cuisine. Rogan Josh was great as was a fish curry, Girlfriend enjoyed the Chinese inspired items. It's expensive by Indian standards, who cares India is cheap, plus you can literally walk across the street from the ITC Mughal.

“Excellent !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Good ambiance, good food and excellent service. You may book (priority book because they don't warranty the time) your table. The Indian atmosphere is there ! Friendly and spiced. Wine list is fine and the price is not excessive.

“Await the wait for savory food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Grand portion of tasty food served by courteous staffs at snail’s pace, to sums it all.

They offer a choice of buffet and à la carte in seperate dining areas. Unfortunately we choose à la carte for which we had to wait for a long time to get seated. The wait post all the spot hopping was frustrating, as their waiting area is small and you can hardly get a seat to rest your legs. We badly wanted to leave the place, but just stuck to it trusting the previous ratings. After a long wait we finally got a place and had to keep signaling for someone to take our order. Staffs were polite though. And then came the wait for the food. But yes, the food was worth the wait, as tandoori chicken was luscious and biryani was mellow.

“Pinch is for those who feel pinched”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

The ambiance is 'socialistic' and the décor minimalist (although surprisingly they have heavily-starched cotton serviettes). Service is basic but attentive and full of good intentions. The Indian food is very satisfying and as good as the one served in the posh Indian restaurants at the high-end hotels in town (at several times the price, of course ). The Chinese food is what locals call 'Chinese-Indian' - Chinese dishes with Indian flavours/spices - not good, not bad, but interesting. Overall, great value, especially since the portions are quite generous. Locals also have large family meals here - always a good sign.

“Superb Meals With Epic Portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

An excellent range of Rajasthani and Punjabi dishes, prepared with care, panache and style. This restaurant provides western comfort, style and service with quality Indian food. All of our dishes were delicious and the portion sizes were absolutely huge. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and pleasantly decorated and feels relatively classy without having unreasonably high prices.

Another massive bonus is the extensive drinks range, with a perfect combination of local beers snd spirits and some imported ones for those inclined to indulge in a cocktail or two or even a vintage scotch. We couldn't have been happier to have eaten our Christmas dinner here.
