Worst service ever. If you want to feel.like a beggar then go and try out this place. Their service vendor literally made us feel ss if we were at their mercy for food.

Was not impressed at all. The worst black tea and chai I've ever had (it was more like water than anything else). Boring food, nothing special really. I had expected more according to the huge line in front of the restaurant.

This seemed like a real local place. We didn't get a friendly reception when we walked in, and most of the locals seemed to walk out! Could have been coincidence? Service wasn't friendly at all... Food however was fantastic. We had butter daal fry and aloo palak with fried rice and paratha. All aspects were great. Go here for good... More
