    Great taste of dum biriyani cooked in a traditional way. The lamb shank biriyani is a big shank in the middle that makes it hard to eat but it was very tasty as was the chicken biriyani . We had only one starter papdi chaat which was delicious . It is more on the spicy side so the yoghurt raita helps. the service was great and food came very quickly so you can be done in an hour . Not a place to chill and spend an evening as turnover of people Is high. Almost felt like a cafe place you eat and go . Good location and perfect for pre- theatre dinner.

    Brilliant experience. A really cool setting in Soho (quite easy to miss the staircase entrance so keep an eye out!). The food and drinks were great, perfect for a freezing cold Sunday evening. The biryanis are huge and we couldn't finish them despite them being delicious, but we were given the option of taking the leftovers home. Also loved the 90s soundtrack.

    Amazing flavours in the biryani, although the crust was more Lucknow biryani than Hyderabad. We felt the chef was trying to give a pie like experience to an Indian biryani! The starters were very tasty and you should order 2 of each to make up for portions. The biryani can serve 2 people each and so we did a mix and match. This place is unique from all the rest in London's crowded Indian food scene. Well done Dhruv.
