An exciting experience Indeed !
Rating – 4.5/5
The Ambience – This is actually quite grandiose and as you enter it can be a bit overwhelming of sorts.
Honestly speaking I was in awe of the place to begin with and just being here evoked a sense of exclusivity that would be difficult to replicate at any other place in Pune.
The Food – One thing needs to be said before I dive into the taste part of things, the presentation of the food is outstanding, much like what you see in International versions of Masterchef. However the quantity is also pretty much Masterchef like, strictly Okay for one person having a moderate diet. For someone like me with a monstrous diet, I found the starters’ quantity to be a bit underwhelming. The Main course was still better in this department, but that’s how they position themselves so no real complaints there !
My constant grudge among the Pune food scene were duly addressed by the above three dishes – Mutton Chops with thankfully a good bite of mutton and aromatic smoky flavors that took this dish to great heights. The Kakori Kebab is awesomely tender with rich flavors and this is the best Kakori I have eaten in Pune. Only after all these dishes comes the turn of Mutton Biryani which is fantastic if you like your biryani as the Nawabs like it. Since the biryani here is the Lucknowi variant, it is aromatic, fragrant, spiced in a subtle manner and the Mutton chunks are absolutely tender and juicy, this I may dare say is arguably the best Lucknowi biryani in Pune❤️
