“Average Food, A One Time Affair”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

The Dhaba serves average food in a 5 star hotel with the ambience and interiors of road side food joints of the Indian Highways. While the latter are much cheaper and purely utilitarian, this restaurant is not. The food is not exceptional but the place has a novelty factor to it. It might appeal to expats as well as upscale local customers. But anyone who has eaten at an actual dhaba will find the experience just average.

The service is not much to talk about. While the staff's nervousness and lack of promptness can be put down to the fact that the restaurant just became operational, the cost a customer bears makes it unacceptable. Though polite, the staff is evidently untrained and raw.

All in all, an average place. If one is looking for real dhaba food, I suggest you go to a real dhaba. However, if you are not very adventurous and want all the comfort of a five star, give this place a try.

“interesting interiors, ordinary food”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

The interiors catch the eye with a dhaba-like decor, but the food was nothing to write home about. And it can get noisy esp. with their musicians doing the rounds.

“PATHETIC SERVICES”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

food, ambiance poor service, terrible attitude and very bad service.
Had no idea of what and how to serve.
clod not even repeat drinks correctly. The concerned waiter was absconding time and again and other waiters had no idea. One even went with the bowl of food, looking for the original waiter leaving our guests in lurch to have food.

“good indian food”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

had the presumptions of it being like any other 5 star restaurant .. Over priced n hardly any taste!
But was quiet surprised to find the taste being quiet authentic n not the run-of-the-mill stuff!
It is on the expensive side but the food does make up for it.

“GREAT food”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

Great selection of northern and southern Indian food. I loved the thali and the naan was authentic. Delicious curry selection on the table for your food. The decor looked a bit like an American version of an Indian restaurant, but is was super clean and cute.
