The food here isn't very great. Over the past few years, its become way too commercial. But, if you're looking for a meal past midnight, here's the place to go to.

We visited this restaurant only to have mutton brain dry fry...its really yum and sure everyone would love that. We also ordered Al Faham Chickec(Barbeque), Ghee rice and kerala porotta...Al Faham was over charred and burnt, ghee rice is very tasty. Kerala Porotta was not light and flaky as it should have been. Overall a nice restaurant for weekend food.... More

Empire is synonymous with their famous boneless butter chicken, ghee rice, empire special chicken kebab and for sure the chilly chicken dry boneless. They have some new additions with the SKB - Shaadi ki Biryani being an awesome addition to the menu. Must definitely try the biryani.
