Stepping into this restaurant is like stepping into the past. Dum Pukht (open only for dinner) is old wood, green leather, sepia prints and antique objects d'art. Taking its cue from the era of the 'Nabobs' of Lucknow and khansamas, the menu card has a retro look and resembles an old woodcut print. Among its best offerings are Shorba Shahi Pasand, Tararey Jhinge, Kakori Kababs, Dum ki Khumb, Koh-e-Avadi, Dal Dumpukht Qureshi (Master Chef's family recipe - arhar dal with hung yoghurt, tempered with burnt garlic) and Dum Pukht Biryani. Not to be missed is the Begum's Pudding made with milk solids, ground almonds, raisins and saffron in a delicate brandy sauce.

The food is excellent but the prices are on a higher side. Great Biryani and the assortment of breads is unique as well, but just too pricey at the end of the daY.Would recommend it once in a while to everyone.
