“Quality is detoriated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

We used to love food at this restaurant and used to visit quite frequently. during our our last two visits we observed that quAqlity of food and service has gone down considerably. waiters are not helpful , in fact they are indifferent to your requests. attitude is - you are here - eat whatever is listed in menu. quality of food used to be great but now is average. great sucess seems to have affected this restaurant any restaurant serving indian food normallly give finger bowls to wash your hands. i was surprised when they provided scented paper napkins- oher restaurants provide you when you enter-to freshen up i wll not go again

“It was good Once Upon a Time in Mumbai”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

I Hope the title says it all...

Presently the Service is Pathetic... Inspite of so many serving staff, they are occupied without any work....
This time i had the Parantha were Full of Oil/ Ghee.. half cooked with pathetic service..

On complaining and accepting, the same was replaced but the order changed to some other.

Overall I will advise NOT to go in the place on an weekend or holiday when catering is not appropriate

“Nothing in comparison to North indian Parathas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

Well, the first place that comes to mind for eating parathas is parts of North india such as Punjab and Delhi.

This restaurant has about 150 different types of parathas with different combination of vegetables. They are quite good in taste but they should definitely go less on oil content. I always request them to not deep fry the parathas. There is daal, pickle and a vegetable offered with the parathas. Overall an ok place.

The food is very oily and heavy on the tummy. Difficult to finish if you dont like oily stuff.

“Yatha Naam Tatha GUn Nahi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

Only Paranthas yet that's one dish I never like about this place. The paranthas served at the place are a far cry from the typical hot parantha delicacies served up in the North. The paranthas served here seem like thick over sized kachoris deep fried in oil rather than something cooked on a light simmer on tawa with desi ghee. White butter remains conspicuously missing on the platter, and for we North Indian Paranthas are never complete unless made in desi ghee and served with Fresh white butter dumpling on top.

The chaat served at this place is surely a thing worth the visit and a calling fro a repeat trip too :-)

Fairly priced and served with quite decent speed
