Short description- in case u r in a hurry:
This restaurant has been around since the 1950s, back old days when ‘gay’ had a different meaning.
The serving staff were old timers who know the art of chatting with guests and taking good care, while giving the feel that he knows his business well. Guy serving us was really good. He came to just talk to us several times about the food, feedback, how some of it is made etc.
Loved munching on the paneer tikka. Soft, YUMM and very nice. RAte it 4.5/5
Lasooni fish tikka (Ghol fish) was good. The fish was flaky and juicy. The edges were a bit burnt but suboptimal. The flavours of the fish made its presence felt. All was good individually but overall the dish failed to b hear due to suboptimal salt. Rate this 3.75/5
Daal sukhi was a marvel. It was dry daal cooked after soaking overnight. Flavours of daal were very enjoyable. The texture was just perfect. One of the best of its kind I have ever had. Rate it 4.95/5
Pahadi murg tikka was very nice. It was juicy, had great flavours of marinade, enjoyed the burnt edges. Rate it 4.25/5
Will revisit to try the continental fare some other day
