The young man who was touting for this place was brilliant! It’s a family business and he sold it well…apparently his Dad is in marketing and it explains the fun signs that drew me into the place. So I ended buying a little something just because the young guy was so great. He has a big future in sales,well done!

Absolutely incredible experience buying clothes here. We wanted to get some classic India threads for our backpacking trip across India and the owner and staff here were so amazing helping us out trying lots of clothes very relaxed and brought us chai and a samosa. They then helped us later that evening stylize our Rickshaw with some curtains. Highly recommend!

had the opportunity to rent a Enfield Thunderbird bike as well as buy some locally embroidered cloth and bandhni Sarees. I was looking for an Royal Enfield Thunderbird and he seemed to have the only one near Fort area. That to in almost mint condition. It was a newer 350x. Rented the bike for 3 days. Hassle-free experience. The entire experience was a breeze as just with a phone call he came to deliver the bike at the Hotel and got the paper work done at his shop. While returning the bike back to his shop I had the opportunity to buy some locally embroidered wall hangings and Sarees. What I liked about him was that he was totally non pushy and had reasonable prices along with some great choices. Moreover he sat with us to tell us his story and offered us tea. I definitely would reccomend his shop for local clothing as well as renting out the bike.
Thank you Mr. Shankar.
