I don't have any Pros, just sharing my terrible experience-- 1. Let's start with the ambience- clearly not much of an effort towards upping the appeal of the restaurant for the customers 2. Soups, both veg and non-veg tasted the same- just horrible, I couldn't...More

Although the service was nice and the restaurant clean and acceptable, my wife and I found the food average at best. The Onion Bahji was heavy with breading and light with onion, and the Palek Paneer was lacking in flavour. Not worth a second visit.
