This restaurant has maintained its quality of food thru the years. The grilled chicken, fried fish, paneer, etc were great. A place to be visited on on each trip to Lucknow.

His pani puri is good and one can easily have 2-3 plates. Nice and tasty specially the filling (mathra) Don't eat his alloo tiki . They are not too great in taste and should be avoided

Lip Smacking Delicacies. This place is famous for it's Basket Chaat and Gol Gappe's. Amidst the beautifully lit lanes of Hazratganj, one can have leisure time with family and friends and can enjoy this hit food joint at Lucknow. A likeable visit for all.
