I was back again to try more of the Dhaba food at a 5 star property.

Ambience : Is good but the restaurant is too small.The feel definitely is not of a Dhaba because of the molecular size.

Food: Well i tried many things last night. The best were the kebabs we had- paneer tikka , bharwan aaloo and the vegetarian seekh. All were good nice not oily. The main course was decent as well - dal , paneer and the bharta all were good.The breads served were cold. In deserts do try the badam halwa - that was really good.

Service - This was a big let down yesterday. First they gave a table to people who came after we did. Manager came and apologized for mistake but apologizing after you got us waiting for 1hour 30 minutes does not make a difference to me.Also the table service was too slow and apparently they were all busy with a customer who was complaining about the plate not being clean.My brother ordered a mock-tail which was served after 5 reminders to the person who took our order.Also many times i had to really look every where to even find a waiter who could take the order.Really the service part ruined the evening.

Prices - Same as other 5 star hotels.Be Ready to shell out at-least Rs.1200-1500 per person if you want to have a good 3-4 course meal- without drinks.

*Always make a reservation before going and be on their head as what i felt was that they were giving preference to the people the manager knows*

The decor of this restaurant is fun, roadside truck driver cafe. The service was excellent. We tried the non vegetarian thali which had a great variety of dishes including refills if you had enough room. With all the taxes that get added on it was expensive so we only ate there once but would definitely recommend you try it - book first as it always looked busy.

We went for a Sunday family lunch to Dhaba. We had made prior reservations & reached fairly early, around 12:30 pm. At that time, the place was empty. It has been done up in a typical dhaba decor with bronze utensils, old equipment, truck horns, & Hindi music from the 50s & 60s.Every single food & drink item was excellent. We had mocktails called Anarkali, Aam Sutra & Khatta Meetha. All were very well-made. They facilitated my request of giving Anarkali without the sugar syrup. For starters, we had chicken tandoori & rann meat. Both were very well-cooked, & suitable for every palate. Food was rice, rotis & naans, butter chicken, kadhai chicken & dal. The kadhai chicken was fantastic. We ordered rabri for desserts which tasted incredibly rich. The staff was very courteous & friendly with the toddlers. Absolutely on my 'repeat' list!
