This place was highly recommended by one friend. But the experience was not. To start with the the service was very poor. Had to remind them twice. The rotis were half baked. Food tasted ordinary compared to the price tag. Would definitely avoid it next time.

I had the opportunity to eat here twice during a visit to Allahabad. The food is uninspired, but passable and reliable. The ambience is very good and the service is commendable.

Horrible service. Staff is rude and careless. In my case they forgot to place the order at kitchen and made me wait for 45 minutes. I walked out from the place without having lunch.
