This place is a classic tourist trap. The restaurant was easily 75% western tourists paying high prices for average food. A friend’s paneer dish was good, but my biryani was very poor and lacking in flavour. The chef had thrown in more chilli to compensate, but it lacked any of the depth of flavour a biryani should have.

This restaurant offers Chinese and Indian food. Stick with the Indian food. The portions are generous, and the food is flavorful. A key point is that it’s clean and we didn’t get sick. We ate there for 2 nights in a row. The only drawback is that they didn’t have fresh mango juice or Diet Coke.

Food and service were fantastic. We were recommended to go buy our tour guide and the hotel. It gets very busy so be prepared to wait. But well worth it.

After a long day spent visiting Taj Mahal we all were hungry and were looking forward for good food. This resturant is one of the popular resturants in agra and offers good food and ambience. We had to wait for appox 30 min but then it was worth the wait.
