Jahanpanah Agra Cantt, Agra

One of the best places to have Mughlai food in the City of Taj !

Rating – 4.5/5

It would be an understatement if I say that this place is a hidden Gem! Having read the previous reviews with mumbled complaints of overpriced items was a concern but I still thought of giving it a go Today.
The experience was awesome, prices are a bit on the higher side like an upscale dining place. However the taste is absolutely authentic and is worth every extra penny compared to other casual Mughlai restaurants.
It will not rip you off like eating at the “Paatra” or “Peshawari” but the taste is almost on par if not better.
I ordered the following:
1. Galawati Kebab – 5/5 and extremely delicious.
2. Kakori Kebab – 5/5, absolutely melts in the mouth.
3. Chicken Jahaanpanah – 5/5, a very different dish with thick gravy, awesome preparation.
4. Ulte tawe ka Parantha and butter Naan – nice to go with the aforementioned dishes.

A special word for Kakori Kebab, after Tunday’s in Lucknow it’s the only place where you would get the most tender of kebabs. Preparation is so tender that you would deserve a pat on the back if you manage to serve it on your plate without breaking it in pieces (hope barbeque nation is listening). Taste is amazing with a subtle hint of saffron and you just can’t afford to miss this. If you’re reading this during the restaurant’s working hours then leave whatever you’re doing and go for it right now;)
I am striking. 5 due to the overall dining experience since the place is very compact and it’s all put up in a very limited space so you won’t get a lot of privacy from other curious guests at busy hours 🙂
I will sign off with a strong recommendation to sample the mesmerizing Awadhi preparations you will not get anywhere else.
