Wonderful experience with outstanding food, a great atmosphere & fab service, notably from Sanjeev Kumar who had time to speak, despite being so busy. Literally, as a table cleared, it was full again with new guests. Highly recommended.

This restaurant gets rave reviews as a must place to eat in a lot of the guide books. We stayed at the hotel, so thought we should try it. We did have a nice meal, but it was pretty expensive, and probably didn't quite live up to our expectations which were perhaps a little inflated. We did get better value... More

This has some amazing N.Indian food served in surroundings that aim to mimic a roadside halt, hence the name Dhaba. The staff are very helpful with menu choices . Their two signature dishes are excellent...Balti Lamb shank and an aubergine dish whosw name i can not recollect.

We visited in late January 2017 for dinner, group of six. Ordered chicken tikka (good) and some sort of fish (quite good - sorry can't remember it exactly) for starters, and for mains had butter chicken (excellent), burni mutton (very good), yellow dal (only so-so), and baigan bharta (eggplant - fantastic). Also ordered a variety of naans, which were pretty... More

Having read reviews about this place and being tired after a VERY long journey - we were eager to sit down and eat. The staff were friendly and helpful and seemed well versed at people being worried about food being too hot. However, the onions came with whole chillies on them. Food was very tasty and enjoyable and the style... More

The food certainly is good, but we have experienced as good Indian food elsewhere for half the price.
