What Makes It Awesome

I visited this place on a friend's recommendation as he boasted much about the delish Lucknow galawati kebabs and the Yakhni mutton biryani that are served at this new restaurant situated near the Jamia Millia Islamia University on Okhla Vihar main road in Noor Nagar. I was not aware that they are on Google so with some difficulty I managed to reach here, then a smiling gentleman welcomed me at the counter with a familiar Lucknowi accent and on knowing that I'm myself from the city after friendly greetings brought few kebabs, paranthas and mutton biryani along with shahi qorma. Must say that the taste of the kebabs was exactly similar to the one used to have at tunday Lucknow and biryani and qorma all was great. Here would also like to mention that food of Lucknow is famous for its traditional Dumpukht style of cooking which is cooking on low flame and beside many flavoursome spices, milk, nuts, rose petals, rose water and saffron is an important part of dishes. After food, they served me phirni/kheer a traditional Awadhi sweet dish and to my surprise, it was also perfect. I took leave from Mr Saif who manages the place and on his insisting got some food packed as well for home.

What's My Pro Tip?

Now coming to the overall experience, a small restaurant with humble seating arrangement located in the packed lanes of Jamia Nagar, but as it was clean and the food was not just great it taste authentic so in my opinion, if you're in love with Awadhi food like me then you surely must visit this place.

Anything Else?

Must try the mutton biryani when you're here!
