Inside environment is also ok ok...the two three persons try to create a sensation every... More

A great eating experience with a huge choice of food mainly from Pakistan. Grills, curries and a dessert station which was incredible. Staff are good and attentive but sometimes a few too many kids. It is a family restaurant so I shouldn't complain and it did not spoil my evening.

The food was very tasty & almost like our Indian dishes. huge spread in the buffet dinner. The concept of Moghul characters going around talking & pleasing the customers with their jokes & shayaris were something different compared to other places we visited. enjoyed the tasty food.

The kebabs and grills are the highlight of the menu. They also have salads, Chinese and a kids menu. The Pakistani authentic cuisine is the mainstay. Do try the kulfi at the... More

Tasteless food. Less variety. Unflavoured BBQ. Flavour were not as per the original recipe. Frozen meat used instead of fresh meat. Bathroom facility poor.
