I ordered online to be delivered by Seamless. Chicken in the biryani was poor quality, Saag Paneer tasted as if it was made from canned Saag, Laccha Paratha was half cooked, all other food tasted below average. This restaurant needs to see the exceptionally high...More

We ordered garlic Chicken and it was the worst I had ever eaten in my life. they are fooling in the name of Indian cuisine. So bad taste. Also they make you wait for atleast 35 min before your order arrives.

Kabob was decent. Goat Kali Mirch masala was good but had mostly meatless bones. Chicken Nani was ordinary. Lamb keema was flavorless except for the sweetness which isn't our taste. Ambience was decent. We ordered a raita. They gave a table spoon of it in...More
