This is a great restaurant if you are looking for delicious Indian BBQ food and not for the ambiance. The choice of menu is limited but excellent and be prepared to line up on busy evenings such as Friday to Sunday as it is very popular with the residents....tells you how good it must be if any restaurant is popular...

Nice restaurant with great ambience, mouth watering barbecue food & excellent service. They have a variety of fresh juices too to complement the food. Overall a good family joint where kids would enjoy too. Weekends get really busy & sometimes you may have to wait for a table so it's advisable to go for an early lunch or dinner.

First of all, The place is not clean at all,and the workers have not been taught any kind of customer service. We were excited to dine there but the first impression of the place was simply disgustingly atrocious. The workers looked at all the customers with disgust and did not cooperate by anyway. If You are looking for a place... More

I visited with a group of friends while we were staying nearby. Little bit of difficulty finding it at first because the map on Tripadvisor seems to show it near the Arboretum but it's actually in the Ukay mall. I had the paneer tikka skewers, with fries. Some others had chicken. All the food was excellent quality. Large portions, more... More

We had dinner over there. It was just amazing and delicious grilled lamb and chicken. Opted to eat the mix platter which offers chicken, lamb and beef with nice chips and great salads.. was worth for the money spent on the food and was not expensive. Was affordable. Worth for value for money...
