We went to the restaurant on the first floor. It had a good selection and a nice ambience as well. Everything we ordered was tasty especially the Dahi Ke Kebab and the Oreo Shake. We went down to the bakery and had a Thandai icecream which was quite unusual.

It is one of the best dining places in Allahabad. Although its crowded on weekends and waiters are a bit arrogant, food is always up to the mark.
