Short description – in case u r in a hurry:

We came to know about this place from our foodie friend rakesh who had been here several times

The restaurant is actually a small shop with a cyber cafe kind of set up – tables fixed to the wall and people sitting on metal stools in front of the tables, facing the wall.

What was interesting is that the walls had colourful pics on them.

There were 4 mutton dishes and we ordered 3 of them. Wanted to try the fourth but no space left.

For the whole period we were there my partner was the only female in the room. We got special treatment for that reason as well:)

We saw a lot of people waiting to get food packed.

Service was very good. The guys were very good to us.

The food was real and just too good. The hotness quotient was so high that we were almost huffing and puffing like an old steam engine….. We cud not just stop. Our hands were on auto mode transferring manna from plate to mouth.

Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:

We started with mutton sukha. Unlike the name sukha, the mutton dish was not dry. It had a thick gravy that was outstanding. The gravy was full of flavours of both spices and meat. The gravy was super hot, super YUMM  and just too good. We polished off the gravy till the last drop.

The meat pieces were unbelievably soft and tasty. The texture was excellent. Super YUMM again. Rate it 4.95/5

We moved on to mutton rassa (curry gravy). The gravy was super thin and watery as expected but was bursting with flavours and taste.

The meat pieces again were super supple and just awesome. Loved it. Rate the dish 4.5/5

Third dish we had was mutton pulav. This had 2 different layers of rice – local short grain brown coloured rice in the base and yellow rice on top. The rice was soft and very nice. It was great to munch on just the rice part too. The flavours of meat, rice and spices had amalgamated.

The meat pieces were super soft and melt in the mouth. They were non marinated and cooked kuccha – hence meAt flavours were full. Rate the dish 4.75/5

We enjoyed the curries with lovely bhakris ( thin crisp rotis).
