We were a family of 9 pax out for good food. We have been here before and thought the quality would be maintained; however we were quite disappointed.

Most of the stuff we ordered had extra dose of salt. Starters were good.. we ordered tikki which was pretty good. The paneer tikka wrapped in leaf is quite over the top with masala;you can't taste paneer.

For main course, we ordered among other things sarson ka saag which was a dampener. excess salt and no flavour. The same was the case with subz jhalfrezi.. Desserts were fantastic. we ordered kulfi which I dare say they probably outsource.

Service is good however it is the quality of food that we come for..

Would love to revisit this place

The first time my colleagues and I went we could not get a table. So we reserved and went a second time. Extremely tasty food and like many other reviewers have commented the paneer was excellent. Portions are large and we had the food parceled. Per head roughly Rs. 1000/-. Many of the utensils and furnishings are made of silver and white metal, apparently the owners have a jewellery business,
