While we were regulars at TGKF a some time ago, we went again after a gap of about two years. The food is still good but somehow some of it is not quite what our memory told us to expect. For example, the galouti kabab was good enough for me to ask for a repeat, but that "simply melts in the mouth" quality was not what it used to be.

During the early part of the meal, the service was disappointing -- our guest from overseas was in a bit of a limbo for about ten to fifteen minutes when nothing landed on her plate, in spite of a couple of reminders. However, subsequently things improved tremendously and the service was back to its normal high standards.

Worth an occasional visit.

This is one of the best lunch buffet I ever had with my family and friends. Very well choreographed buffet, we don’t need to get up and walk around with our plates. Initial few rounds of Kebab and the verities are awesome. Then followed by delicious main course. By the time we reached dessert, all of us a are full but don’t want to miss the final. Ambiance and service is very good in line with their food. Value for money.

The food is great. The service is good, not great. The attention to detail and anticipating my needs was poor. Staff are friendly and courteous. Cleanliness in the facility was poor considering it's a hotel outlet.

The GKF is an empanelled vendor with our company and we had booked a table for lunch for some of the key stakeholders of us. The place has got a good ambiance and is very elegant. The food was delicious, especially the Kababs, the curries and the desserts. The price for an individual is a little on the higher side though. The serving staff were quite courteous and the experience was really good. The hotel could do better only if it reduced its price a little.

I had been here a few times quite a few years ago. Happened to visit recently and I have to say that they have absolutely maintained the same standard. The Kebabs were great and way it is presented and explained do have a bit of a charm. The biryani too was excellent and we just could not have enough of it. I would definitely recommend people to try this at least once.
