After hearing a lots…reading a lots… (not ur review dazling) and not taking the hint of ordering one what u ordered too dazzling (ehehhe)… well i landed the place with friend….it was ”ainwain” dinnner..well i reached the place..and prayed its good coz i have my bad shares with good places… so i entered the den the first impression was not good..as i entered and was on stairs…i saw that they had some old time stairs with cement missing and a little worn out kind of stuff.. but as i entered the place it totally changed my view, the place was chic , with nice decor, fancy lighting, comfy seating, friendly staff with a bar counter at far end…. i took a look at the menu and asked the attendant to guide whats their specialty and he pointed in bbq platter (paksitani style) as we all had enuff pakistani in eid days so i skipped that.i wanted something lesser spicy, tender …we ordered royal chicken… in the mean while a coke as starter ws ordered..hehehehe…well the coke was a turn down…it ws not chilled and i dont like having my drinks specially the carbonated ones with ice….well i got it replaced and the new one was cold..still not chilled…

we chatted and the food arrived…the presentation was impressive and the quantity seemed good…the crockery and cutlery was top notch, the chicken pieces were topped with jalapenos and if i m not forgetting with some cashews. …after taking the pics…and examining the meal.. i held my food fighting tools and made the first cut…i guess the chicken was with skin…i tried to find out..but this thought came to my mind when i ended the meal so was too late… any ways..the chicken was perfectly cooked and the knife made an easy cut.. i smeared it with more sauce and yummy it was.. the fries were crisp and awesome and i ate pretty much all of them… as i reached chicken in the middle portion and made cut it was stuffed with more jalapenos… i chewed slowly and ate the whole meal ina slow pace..i wanted to enjoy every bite of it…and surely i did..

the staff is pretty friendly with smiley faces and they know their menu pretty well, and if asked explain the dish to you creating a picture fo it.. ambiance pretty nice and they listen to you…

surely gonna hit this place again..and this time its gonna be the real test..the beef steak…

Keep it up guys..recommended full time without slightest of hesitation
