Superb butter chicken and hot n sour soup. The restaurant is a bit small but the food is really good. The service was average as the waiter brought the wrong order.

After having a brief evening walk, we visited this restaurant to have our dinner, the restaurant is centrally located and easily approachable, the ambience is too good, we ordered Panjabi thalli and some tandoori dishes, they instantly served us in hot condition, some of the vegetables dishes are mouth watering, the spices are well seasoned ,the vegetables are well cooked,...

If you wish to taste some Punjabi kitchen in Nainital, this is one of the good hotels you can. You need to climb some steps but food is worthy for that! You can enjoy your food with a view of Naini lake. The calmness of the environment along with Punjabi taste will be a good choice your can try with.... More

In my recent visit to this restaurant , I did not get too much food option here ( Probably I visited in September, lean season ). Aaloo Paratha was the only food I tested and it was good. Can try once.
