“Absolutely amazing in all respects”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Absolutely a great place to visit. A very fine dining experience and a true journey into Awadhi food (a variety of North India food).

The finest stuff and great menu. Decor is only matched with live music in the evenings. EVERYTHING on the menu is highly recommended.

Being an Indian food restaurant I would have only liked a wider choice of Indian spirits.

If you like Moghlai, this is the place. Everything is just perfect, whether it is the Kababs or Baingan-Mirchi ka saalan. You just can't have enough of this place.

“Easily one of the best meals I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

I came here with a large group of business colleagues where we ate from a pre-ordered menu. Most of my colleagues are Indian so we trusted their judgement. Normally I try to describe each course but there were so many. Easily about 12 courses and it doesn't help that I dipped into both the meat and vegetarian options.

The food here is just exceptional: stand out courses include the biryani which was the most fragrant once I've ever had with bright tender rice perfumed in cardamon encased in a decorative vase-like container. The very slow cooked lamb leg I tried two or three times. There was also a rosy chicken dish which was delicious and mildly spiced. I also had the best rice pudding I've ever had - and I HATE rice pudding! It was like a thick paste with rose water, rose petals, gold leaf, pistachio nibs and dried fruit. It was also highly perfumed and just a delight to eat.

The service is very attentive as you would expect and the decor is similar to like being on the inside of a cave or a tent with layers of fabrics hanging in every corner. Despite being in a big group it felt very private which is always great for business dinners.

I would fly out to Delhi if only to eat here again.
