What they serve at the top of Sahara Mall is a disgrace to their brand name. What they served from their outlet at Aminanbad (I packed 4 pcs romali rotis, 2 plate mutton biryanis, 4 plate mutton kebabs for my wife and her friend at a total cost of Rs 476/-; I myself do not like mutton whereas they are foodies for Kebabs etc) was also reportedly dismal. And when I got down from the rickshaw,ordered the food and waiting for the delivery, suddenly, an old Muslim lady appeared near me and pleaded "I am hungry, please feed me one roti". When I got the change, I ordered one plate Kebab and roti for the lady. Immediately another younger lady sprang up from somewhere and pleaded "I am also hungry, please give me one roti". So I returned my balance change to Tundays and requested them to feed this lady also with a roti and a plate of Kebab. Next moment, an old Muslim man was visible near my rickshaw with hungry eyes.."Sir, I am also hungry for the last few days..."; Panicked I jumped on the rickshaw with my packing and asked the rickshaw to speed away towards Nasirabad market. Once out of the area, my rickshaw puller (visibly embarassed and annoyed) started telling me..."Sir, you know, here...." I interrupted him and requested...."I know, you need not tell me."
On one side, Kebabs and Biriyani; on other side endless hunger, is this the irony of developing India?? Is this the irony of the area where the "Brand Tunde" belongs to? Or is this all farce, all false, all pretensions of poverty just to loot gullible, innocent, sensitive tourists/outsiders??
Beware of the location. And do take prior information about the latest law and order situations before you visit the places in old Lucknow (though problems, if any, are largely internal and not concerning tourists/outsiders at all; still better to be cautious).
This was my experience on 25th January 2013 evening well before sunset at Aminabad.
