The decor of the restaurant will you a royal vintage vibe.
We tried-

Chili Cheese Toast-
Price- 320
Bite sized sandwiches of cheese with finely chopped chillies in between. It tasted good but for the price the quantity was very little.
Rating- 4/5

Kulhar ki Tangdi
Price- 520
Chicken drumsticks marinated and cooked in Bhatti masala. The chicken was tender and flavourful, but upon taking a few bites, you’ll find it extremely dry. The presentation of the dish is lovely, each drumstick is served in an individual pot where masala and salad is added. Again for the price we think only 4 drumsticks are too less.
Rating- 3.5/5

For main course we opted for:

Vegetable Au-Gratin-
Price- 505
It was mixed vegetables cooked in a cream sauce and baked with cheese. The dish was delicious, it reminded us so much of some good lasagne.

Paired with laccha paratha or eaten alone, this one is a hit among vegetarians. Ps- it’s also a smart way fool your kids into eating vegetables.

Desserts:

Blueberry Cheesecake Pie:
The most delicious baked cheesecake pie. It was a perfect balance of buttery cheesecake and crusty pie. We absolutely loved this pie. Also it wasn’t extra sweet like traditional cheesecakes but sweet in just the right proportion.
Rating- 5/5

Walnut Brownie Pie:
Again, a delight. Brownie baked in pie. The only complain we have with this one is that it was a bit too dry. But pairing this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream could definitely solve the problem.
Rating- 4/5

Macaroons-
We tried the available flavours- lemon, strawberry, guava and caramel.
If you’re a fan of macaroons this is definitely the place for you.


Our favourite among them was the caramel macaroon and least favourite was the guava simply because it lacked the taste of guava.

The bakery section was definitely eye- catching as it’s filled with treats that you can eat in house or pack for home.

Overall We loved their service, the staff is extremely courteous. However, we felt as though the food didn’t match up to the prices charged. We recommend you choose your dishes wisely because this place could burn a hole in your pocket.
