It is a small restaurant, but as they say, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, same goes with this place. Don’t let yourself be fooled by the surroundings, you just need to enter the restaurant and the aroma of rich luscious chicken will make you forget about all. Being a customer myself, I have experienced that the restaurant offers you good services with a warm and cozy ambiance.

The owner is so friendly that you won’t feel like a customer there but an old friend to him.

Though everything here is worth experiencing but if you want to ask for some of the special dishes here that are Butter Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, and Chicken Malai Tikka. The gravy of the Butter Chicken is packed full of flavor and it is so thick that it is sure that you can’t restrict yourself from licking your fingers again and again. The curry is made with gravy of tomatoes, butter, fresh yogurt and spices making it even tastier than the chicken itself.

Having tried Butter Chicken at many places but none can match the taste of this restaurant. People from and outside India always fall in love with the taste of the delicacies here. Even people living adjacent to the restaurant can’t help themselves from not eating here.
