Service: Very good! Friendly and extremely sweet

What we loved: Course 1 which was “street food,” Bhel puri churmura and chana sev chaat was like the typical chaat, the chana was well done and both the dishes were made/mixed very well. We personally always enjoy anything “malai,” and so we loved the zaffran malai brocolli which had saffron cream cheese on it, slightly under cooked but nonetheless, it was delicious. Course 3 was definitely our favorite, it also included Tandoori Chicken and Classic lamb which were so appetizing, we could totally eat 2-3 more pieces. Course 4 was equally appetizing, the lasooni prawns which is basically garlic prawns was so good and so were the other two chicken dishes. Coming to the curries, we enjoyed most of them. The Chicken Hara Pyaaz, Rajma ki Subzi, and the Palak Paneer had such good flavor in it, it went so well with the roti and the saffron rice served on the side. Finally, the desserts were just too good! The presentation was done so well, it looked very appealing and surprisingly, every single dessert was upto the mark, very delicious.

What we didn’t like as much: We didn’t really enjoy the Paneer Kaju ki Tikki, I think it was because of the roasted cashewnuts that it included. One other dish we didn’t like was the Khatta Meat curry, which was lamb curry. It tasted a little odd to us, had too much of a ginger-y taste.

Ambiance: Live DJ playing & trumpet player. Super lively and lit place to be at for a Friday brunch.
