  • None of the food is light and animal fat is used liberally. Do not go if you are on a diet
  • A recent refit by a Bangkok-based design firm has given the restaurant a sharper look but it still has the air of a formal hotel dining room
  • The best tables are those far away from the loud tinkling of the piano player who plays Hindi film songs

Vir's Verdict


This is the restaurant that popularised the elaborate court cooking of the Avadh court in Delhi. Dum Pukht is a style of slow cooking in which the dishes cook gently in steam (the Dum) but the menu goes beyond steam cooking. The restaurant has three classics: the minced meat kakori kabab that melts in your mouth, the famous biryani in a sealed pot that has been widely copied, and the delicate yellow Dal Qureshi with its garlic tang. This is the place to go for North Indian haute cuisine.

Amazing Music And Good Food
amazingly good piano music and food is really nice. I read somewhere in reviews that someone has written a piano player plays with loud thinking tinkling noise. Although I agree sitting next to piano will not be the most comfortable while dining and listening to loud piano strings. But the piano player is amazingly good... I went only to hear the piano since I love hearing it.... and I was pleasantly surprised... well spent evenings after that... would love to visit again.. food little expensive but the live music on piano well compensates for everything else. Guys please give respect to the pianist who really pours his heart out in playing songs and even complies with song requests... but then not everyone has ears for music... overall a great place.. The service is excellent by Naveen and Mr. Om Prakash.

Awesome phirni
I visited this restaurant during the restaurant week and was very happy with the visit. They had a great variety and the service was as usual exceptional. The chicken biryani was much better than the mutton Biryani to my utter surprise and the dessert is just exceptional. Must give it a try! I will be back again in the summers.

Perfect evening
Awesome authentic food Royal ambience Perfect kakori kababs, , fish tikka, gilafi seekh, galauti, hara bhara kababs, dudh kababs, kham khatai, goolar kabab, mahi khush kabab, shahi sheekhampur kabab, all are out of this world delicious. The chef knows what he is doing with the spices. The kebabs are melt in your mouth soft. In main course gosht baoli, rogan josh and dal dum pukht are quiet yummy. Badam chicken as the name suggests is made of almond based gravy which is rich in texture. Mughlai cuisine cannot be thought of without its fragrant biryanis. Dum pukht biryani, navratan pulao and gucchi (mushroom) biryani is well cooked and well balanced. The restaurant have more variety in biryani section. The briyanis are served with your chosen raita as the cool raita will balance the spices. Indian breads are ordered to dip in the gravies. Crunchy laccha paratha with numerous layers are fantastic to eat with chicken curry.
