    Very authentic place, and the food is outstanding for a mid budget restaurant. Definitely a must go if you are in Bangalore.

    Очень вкусная еда! Неплохое обслуживание! Соусы лучше не ешьте (здесь и где-либо). Местные говорят, что они и небутылированная вода - главные причины отравлений.

    Try the afgani daal and nargese kofta. And yes the biryani is a must go for meat eaters. I also loved how they serve colorful snack sticks with various chutney's as starters. Food is pricey though.
