You can't really care about the food here once you see how dirty this place is. Left over food, dirt, dust fills the floor of this dhaba. The tables are left dirty and unclean. I could barely chew on my food with all the filth that surrounded me at this dirty dhaba. Avoid. There are cleaner and better places to... More

A very popular place on the highway of solan to Chandigarh at dharampur. Kali Mirch chicken is definitely worth a try.

not a clean or tidy place to eat. We walked in [a group of 15] and walked out. we were informed that the place on the first floor was better but were in no mood to try it. This place had [in my mind] a good reputation but highly avoidable!!

Totally over rated place. Its just normal Dhaba and nothing great about this place. Dal, Baigan Bharta, Butter chicken, Rajmah, mix veg we tried all... More

Probably why I didn't find it that great because I had heard too much about it. The food was good, just like any other punjabi Dhaba. I couldn't really find anything extraordinary about the food. We ordered, chicken, dal, paneer main course items and even stuffed paranthas. The best part was maybe the chai (tea), really tasty. It's an average... More

Almost all dishes have same gravey with ALOT of tomatoes in it. If you are used to north indian food, you will not like it. Other may... More
