Delicious food, value for money and exquisite service. We were initially seated downstairs which was extremely noisy due to two noisy groups of people all in a small space, however, we requested to be seated upstairs and were moved 10-15 mins later as a table cleared upstairs. Staff are very friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and be back myself!

Wedding anniversary dinner with family. The food is proper Delhi style for a “Delhiite’s” liking! Everything we have tried so far was delicious. Overall an excellent experience.

The food is truly delicious however the management is very poor and the size of the restaurant space does not comfortably seat the amount of guests they allow to make reservations at one time. Their Basement seating is very squished, depressing, and dingy especially if you are seated up against the wall or touching the iron grating dividing the eating area with the kitchen entrance. BEWARE, even if you request to be seated upstairs and are personally told you will be, don't expect that to happen once you arrive! If you're ok with the basement accommodations then the food is worth the visit.

The lamb chop appetiser was sublime. The dahi chat was great. The alcoholic mango lassi was great too. However I wasn’t a fan of the butter chicken - the chicken tasted really weird, had a strange texture and ruined the perfect experience for me. However the restaurant decor/ambience is really nice, reasonable prices, good service and easy to get a reservation. If they can cook the chicken better or use quality chicken thighs, that would be great.

It was an amazing place with delicious Indian food with a very reasonable price. Would totally recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau rice and garlic naan and a rose lassi to drink.

Food was excellent and service was prompt and very nice. We were seated downstairs which felt like a basement room-- no windows and hot, which was a bit unpleasant, but the entrance level looked like it would be a nice experience and was much cooler temperature-wise.

We visited for Father’s Day lunch with two other families; so a large group. We had to move the time last minute and they accommodate this.
The food was lovely. We like spice so it was definitely up our street! The waiter recommended some mild dishes for the kids which were a hit (empty plates).
My only issue was the portions which I think were smaller than expected.
I must also point out that their cocktails are great too. Their twist on mohito and Bellini were delish.
All in all a good experience.

Disappointed that we came for a birthday celebration lunch and the bar man was not available or in at work to make up the drinks :((
Also being Saturday, the ladies washroom could have been cleaned & bin emptied.
