Wanted to try this place after dining at Chowpaty. Weather was nice, so I elected to sit outside in the courtyard. I should have poked my head inside to see what it was like, but I was abruptly told by the gentlemen at the counter to have a seat outside. Menu is not very extensive, but does have the basics....

I've grown up eaten chicken at Nargis and it's so much better than it's rival down the road. The chooza is well roasted, spicy and succulent. Have it with chips or naan or salad, and guaranteed you'll be mentally booking in your next visit to this place. The paneer tikka roll is very tasty for anyone that prefers to eat... More
