This place will make you addicted to its variety of Non Veg Lucknow specialties. The taste of the food is really awesome and wont let you down as it has been named. This will let you experience the few of its famous recipes, which you can't find anywhere else. So foodies should not miss this place at any cost.

Words cannot describe the feelings of a foodie while at Dastarkhwan. I would be doing disservice even by attempting the same. And it is economical. Must try the different kababs including the famous gilouti kababs with paranthas, the mutton rogan josh and the biryani. You have to eat it to experience the feeling of heavenly peace- what a treat.

I went alone as wife was travelling for work to remote areas in Lucknow. My desire to authentic kebabs forced me to order 3 dishes i.e. Seekh kabab, Galawat and Chicken curry with Paratha and Roomali roti. All of them were worth trying. Only problem I had that I ate too much. The urge was so strong that I went... More

Taste wise it is good but cooking medium is the sticky Dalda, which is a bad cholesterol generator, however, the waiter claimed that the medium was refined oil, but it was not

Had mughlai paratha-really soft and yummy. Galouti kebab-awesome. Mutton bhuna was very good too. Mutton biryani was really yummy and flavorful. Service was good. Prices quite decent. Place starts getting full past 8pm. They have nice seating outside for those waiting. Overall experience memorable.

I went to Dastarkhwan, Hazratganj, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Excellent Food Quality. Well maintained hygiene. Ambience is very Good. Foodies... if you want to taste Mughal Cuisine of Lucknow, this is the best place I found in Lucknow. Just try it once, I am sure that you will Love the Foods.

Food as always excellent. Roasted chicken and mughlai paratha was really good. My friend who is vegetarian got option but very limited. They have separate space for families. Only not good part was that they don't accept cards of any type.. Rest all is best
