Delicious food, quick service, honest opinions, what more you can ask for. I have heard of famous dal makhani but my personal favorite is cheese tomato.

It's an average restaurant serving delicious dal which is to be eaten with lacha parantha. Veg salad adds to it.

They serve fantastic food at very nominal prices. You can easily locate it. It is nearby Ludhiana railway station. No problem of parking or getting a public convence.

Very busy.probably due to quality food served here.Went for lunch on 20/10.16 and had to wait for 15 mnts due to number of customers.Dal Makhani was very smooth,properly cooked except the quantity of Desi Ghee(thats the way people of Punjab like). Salad was too special and so were Chapaties.Services were quick.Satisfying experience overall.

Very good eating joint in the heart of city.. Bit crowed due to location... Have parking problems otherwise food is excellent... Specially Loki raita and Dal makhni fame of ludhiana.... One big problem is sitting arrangements... Very difficult to sit comfortably due to shortage of space...

I visited this restaurant last evening for a snack, but ended up having dinner. They DONT serve snacks. Only lunch or dinner. But the place servs good food. Very small place. Don't go by the look from outside. I had the cheese/paneer Paratha along with malai cooked gravy. Worth the money. Please make sure you order limited quantity initially and... More
