The place has a lot of variety and the food is quite good.. Apart from the chat outside which has a lot of options, one can even try the mughlai food inside which too is quite good

The signature basket chaat is large, spicy and definitely OTT.. I also tried the Palak chatpata which had similar chutneys and taste. Overall a good place of you want to taste the typical local chaat in relatively hygienic conditions...

Went to try the basket chaat to see what all the fuss was about on the internet. It is essentially a fried potato basket with all of their chaat items inside doused in very sweet tamarind and yoghurt sauces. What I was left with was a sickly sweet dish with no discernible flavour or texture. The dish would have been... More

The Basket Chaat is why this hotel is famous. At Rs 150/- it's exorbitant and not worth it IMO. The Chaat is a HUGE serving but it doesn't really stand out. But it's a landmark. Visit it if you must and tick it off your list. There are better and more reasonably priced establishments for Basket Chaat. Try Tiwari Chaat... More

This restaurant is located in the heart of the Lucknow city-- Hazratganj market area. The basket chaat that you get here is amazing in taste and the chaat portion is such that it can be shared between 3 people. This place is really good for family gatherings, hangout with friends. The restaurant inside is fabulous with decorated sitting arrangements. They... More
