When you have sheer indulgence on your mind, don’t look beyond this restaurant. They have buffets aimed at the corporates, on weekday afternoons. However, if you don’t want to compromise on the flavours {especially since you will be spending a bit here}, pick from their vast menu. Their mellow shorbas are a great place to begin. You can then move on to their rich Murgh Malai Tikka that’s coated with a yogurt and cashew paste. There’s also the Nalli Gosht that’s fragrant with spices and their spectacular Dum Ki Biryani.
