This is one of the nicest restraunts i've eaten in mumbai, the butter chicken, and mixed grill are definately the best dishes on the menu. would reccommend highly.

If you are looking for good mughlai food, look no further. Food here is delicious and reasonably priced. The ambiance is nothing great and the place tends to be a bit crowded.

My advice would be to book a 'Dastarkhan' upstairs at the restaurant. It is your own little room with a lowered dining table and you sit on mattresses on the floor. The ambiance here is amazing and a great way to have food with family or friends. The rooms are air conditioned and you can order via telephone as well.

Worth the money, and good quantity of food. Plus it gives you good quality, in a few styles of Thali foods. Must try...

We ate 3 meals here - 1 breakfast and 2 dinners. The dinners were okay: reasonable food at reasonable prices. Although certainly not bad food, the standard seemed lower than we have historically remembered it. The paneer manchurian, chilli chicken and butter naans were lovely.
The breakfast visit was a non-starter. There was a power failure (hence candle-lit), and only 4 items were available: tea, bread-and-butter, plain paratha and kheema. We ordered the first 3 of these options, which hardly merits a review.
Overall, service wasn't great, but then we weren't expecting great things either. For all 3 visits, the bill had to be asked for multiple times and additional orders had to be repeated multiply. Having said that, for the price, the food isn't bad. Probably not the glammest restaurant we have ever visited, but seemed hygienic enough.

I went there with my family and had to wait for atleat half an hour to get into the dining room whch was full vth the noise of people tht was very disturbing.i got a headache on just entering that place.we ordered one mutton biryani but when they served it aftr the long wait it was not mutton biryani but rice mixed with daal and topped with a boiled potato..the other dishes we orderd were also not upto the mark as i had heard off.the restaurant is undoubtedly over crowded and i guess they dont pay due attention to the taste of food...had a dissapointing time there
