One of the Best in Hyderabad

Visited on our Wedding anniversary in April 2014. The food, ambience, service all are very good. The Fish starter , mutton biryani are excellent. Had a great time and made our day even more memorable.

Khaan Saab Contiunes Serving Quality Food

On 09 Feb 2014, had dinner at Khaan Saab . Ordered Chicken Shorba to start with . One may order only one shorba to be shared by two people. Tandoori Chicken Tikka was nicely roasted without blackening it. It was spiced mildly, tender to eat and was delicious. In the main course we tried Kandhaar Chicken. Boneless chicken with medium thick gravy was aromatic and tasted good. Khaan Saab is maintaining its quality of food. However the serving staff is yet to be trained properly by the management. Visiting Khaan Saab is a good option for food.

Twisted pair of wire in my subzi.

I remembered having a good experience with Ok food at Khaan Saab and I was passing by, so decided to try it again.
So me, my wife and a friend came in expecting a good aromatic dinner.

My second time experience with the ambiance is a mixed bag. The tables are closely placed, so doesn't provide for much of private space. Lighting is a bit low and I had to strain my eyes to view clearly. Dining place was clean and I am happy about it, however I could see a couple food stain on the white sheet on my table, which a colored sheet was trying hard to conceal.

Food:
We ordered Jaituni Baingan bharta (a nice touch of olives to flavour household baingan bharta, though it lacked that charcoal taste which I love) and Bhutta Methi palak, which tasted good.
We were enjoying our meal when my wife pulled out a twisted pair of iron wire from her green curry. I immediately called the head waiter, who smiled took the wire from me and offered us to clean the plate and serve fresh curries, which we took, but I didn't see much of an apology!
It spoiled my mood somehow. We finished our dinner and left.

Disappointing and Absolutely Worst Experience Ever

I went this afternoon with my family. I really liked the ambience of the restaurant. Reception area is large and very nicely done.

Unfortunately our experience of service quality and Food quality was a complete disaster. Being the first time, we went with the recommendation of the Waiter. None of the dishes were good. Service was pathetic. There were multiple people and no one was attentive about the items we had ordered. When the food arrived, there was no one to serve. Even after repeated requests, they couldn't get my son a soft drink which was ordered at the beginning. When we asked them several times why this is not being served, they reacted in a very rude manner. Totally worst experience.

Khaan Saab

Should start with the ambiance.....Been there on a weekend and the first thing that pulled my eyes is the giant elephant.

Sculpture/statue at the entrance of the giant hall (check out the pic added). That is the main attraction of the entire ambiance. Then, the large painting on a canvas at the left wall of the hall is one which takes you to a different level of feel of the restaurant and the light. Sometimes the live musical concerts that happen is all what makes me rate the ambiance on the upper most level of any scale. And, food is no less good then what the ambiance is. Light, Tasty and too good for a lunch or dinner. You also have a buffet arrangement at a different hall exclusively for it. Over all Khaan saab is the best place to go.

Jashn-E-Awadh + Ghazals

I had the pleasure of having family dinner at Khaan Saab with during the captioned event. The place was spacious and tables were well spread out to provide comfortable fine dinning experience. However the food offering was not elaborate and there was a mismatch of the theme too. Mutton Yakhini Shorba is a Kashmir speciality which was offered in this Awadh festival. Choice of veg soup was limited to two only and both were equally bad, though the above-stated non-veg soup was good to taste. Starters offered were all good particularly non veg Tunde Kababs. Main course was adequate n delicious. Lazzatdar Paneer was soft whereas Chandni Chicken was milky delicious. Overall good experience which could have been great by having staff well versed with menu offered . Considering the quality of food served, i found it little expensive. Go have a visit and indulge in traditional north indian food, deserves a dekko atleast once.

Jashn e Awadh - Review

Luckily got to spot and visit Lucknow food festival running in Khaan Saab, named as ‘Jashn e Awadh’.

One good attribute of the festival is the unique and elaborate al a carte menu which they have come up with. Varieties are many to keep you engrossed in reading the menu for some time. Considering Lucknow is more known for non-veg delicacies but festival does offer few vegetarian options as well. The kababs, the shorbas, biryanis are all there.

I started my dinner meal by ordering ‘Motiya Jeera Paani’ which is actually Jal Jeera, though nothing great about it, but the extra topping of boondi made it crunchy and nice appetizer to start with. Probably I should have gone for the thandai option, that would have given better value for money.

I followed up with ‘Tunde Kabab’, for the uninitiated let me tell you that ‘Tunde Kabab’ is not a dish name, but a kabab which has been made famous by its cook. Tunda in Hindi refer to person who has lost an arm, when Lucknow’s royal family member asked their cook to prepare a kabab for which he doesn’t have to user his teeth, the cook (tunde) came up with the kabab made out out of minced meat and around 160 spices. This gave birth to Tunde Kabab and now known as brand for this variety of kabab. Not very sure what is the update on the patent of this particular variety of Kabab, but restaurants and eateries present this as a dish variety only, which ideally should not be.

Let’s get back to the review, though the variety served by the restaurant was not the exact version of the kababs which you get at Tunde’s shop in lucknow, but still it is quite close. Hence you will not be disappointed.

Next one which I had was ‘Awadhi Murgh Biryani’ which is chicken biryani, this rather left me disappointed, as the rice and preparation was not quite near to Briyani which you get in many local outlets in lucknow.

To get over my disappointment over Biryani, I ordered a sweet, something which I had never tried before, litchi rabri. Though the flavor of litchi (fruit) was missing, but rabri (dish made with condensed milk) itself was quite good, with right amount of sweetness.

If you come to have Lucknowi cuisine you need to end it with some Pan (betel leaves). The magadhi paan which I ordered was not very great, but still tolerable.
Though the food part didn’t made me overjoyed but the live Gazal which is part of the festival can fill up the gap.

To end, I have to give a restrained reference of my fidgety table and a broken earthen vessel which served curd.

Great Set lunch...l

I had been to this restaurant about a year back and had a good experience. I went for a movie in Inox GVK, and on the way back, me and my wife decided to drop in here.

Many of the reviews here have talked about the ambiance of this place. What I love here is that the tables are spaced out and you really have a lot of privacy.

We were planning to order a-la-carte but was pleasantly surprised to see an unlimited set menu called "Dawaat-e Khaan Saab - Royal Lunch" at Rs. 376+ taxes (Rs. 455 AI) available. This was an unlimited set menu to be served on the table. We ordered non-veg. versions of this for ourselves.

First to arrive at the table was Paya Shorba and two starters, namely Nimbu Murgh and Murgh Seekh Kebab. Paya Shorba is always my favorite and today it did not disappoint me. The Nimbu Murgh was a boneless chicken kebab marinated in a lemon flavored marinade. It was spicy and succulent. The Murgh Seekh Kebab was normal stuff, but we enjoyed it with bread basket of rotis and naans.

The main courses had Tadkawala Dal, Subz Mela (a spicy mixed vegetables with Paneer and babycorn), Murgh Makhani and Saagwala Gosht along with the refilled bread basket and Jeera Rice. The Dal had double tadka and went nicely with the Jeera Rice. Loved the Saagwala Gosht (mutton with spinach). The Murgh Makhani was good but a tad too sweet for my liking. Overall, I like to point out that each of the dishes were well cooked and not too spicy.

Finally, the dessert section had ice cream with Gulab Jamun, which was fairly ordinary.

I would definitely recommend this set meal. The waiters were extremely courteous and the service was prompt and pleasant.

Must Try is the Dum Biryani

Been to this restaurant too many times. This time with a couple of friends who were coming to this restaurant for the first time. Dum Biryani and Chicken Peshawari are really good. Dum Biryani has that taste of a Lucknawi Biryani that makes me come back to this restaurant again and again. We dined with complete satisfaction knowing that it was a value-for-money experience. The portion size for each course is little much more than two. So we had to parcel some of the food for midnight party as well.

No food or cuisine is complete without dessert or Paan to go with it. Had a magai Pann priced INR 30 which completed any space left in my stomach as well. So since timing was an issue we closed with the billing and headed towards exit .

nice food ,economical as well as great ambience

Quite like the place. The food here is really good. You must try palak aur sev ki chaat in the starters.The chefs here take into account your preference/feedback about the food.The perfect place to go out for business dinners. The location of this place is also very central.

Awesome North Indian Plus Mughlai Food

I have been to this restaurant many times but it has never disappointed me.
Firstly, the ambience of this restaurant is very royal.
Secondly, the service is very good.
Thirdly, the food is delicious.
My Favs here - Palak ki Chaat, Gosht ke gappe, Murg Parat Biryani (All these are must haves here)

Great food... don't miss

I have been to this place many times and each time I come out, I come out smiling and satisfied. The place has awesome food, decent ambiance and decent service. I feel that it is better than Sahib Sindh Sultan, Angeethi and a few other nearby restaurants which serve similar food.

The menu is carefully selected and does not have many run-of-the-mill dishes that are found elsewhere. In fact, menu selection is one of the differentiating factors. The soups, starters, main course and desserts are all awesome. Amongst soups, paya shorba is out of the world. I have not had anything this good anywhere in Hyderabad. Tundey kebabs are wonderful too and deserve special mention. Do try out the masala dahi (or something of this sort, I forgot the name) too. Its a different experience altogether. To name just these items is unfair as actually everything is good!

The ambiance is nice and the place has an open-feel to it. The service is decent. One of the drawbacks related to service is that some of the seating areas are pretty distant from kitchen. But that is fine I guess as the entire experience is enjoyable.

Ambiance - 4/5
Food - 4.8/5 (could'nt give a fiver!)
Service - 3.5/5
Value for money - 4.5/5 (actually this place is full paisa vasool though its not cheap)

Overall - 4.5/5

Experience - priceless!

The "Nawabi" feel

"Royal" is the word that struck my mind at the first instance..From the decor to cutlery everything had a Nawabi touch..The menu comprised of unique dishes and couple of them were palatable. Olive garlic naan was something I was trying out for the first time and it didnt disappoint me and so didnt the flavory veg tawa biryani..I suppose one needs to be specific about the order being placed to enjoy the luscious food out there..The service is rather slow much to my dismay as we waited for the bill. Overly priced for the food that they serve but the ambience is worth it..

Try it if you wanna have some hair chicken curry

We had a horrible experience at khaan saab at GVK 1. We found hair in our food 3 times and they were treating us with 'hair chicken curry is our special item, we'll charge 10% extra for that' attitute. After our repeated complaints, they offered free desserts and 10% discount on the bill. Then they came up with the bill and there was no discount. We again had to raise our voice, and they said they had a policy of not giving any discount! Really horrible place. Never even think of trying it, unless u feel that you lack some hair

Some clarifications about the earlier reviews

After posting my review for Khaan Saab, I was reading some reviews, and find some comments that are of course true, but can be clarified a bit.

I am nor a “food expert” and neither the owner/ any employee of Khan Saab is known to me, but wanted to discuss on some points that I know from my experience. I think I am foodie, and I have extensive experience in staying almost all parts of India—6 years in North India (Lucknow, Allahabad, Gurgaon, Delhi), 1 year in West India (Pune and Mumbai), 4 years in South India (Hyderabad and Bangalore), 2 years in North-East India (Guwahati) and rest in East India (my hometown, Barddhaman, a small town in West Bengal). I have not only stayed in these cities, but due to the touring nature of my job, I used to go to various other cities of the same region regularly, and used to taste local delicacies. So have quite good experience in terms of food.

Someone complained that they take more time to bring in the ordered items. Might be true for his/her case. When I ordered Tunde Kabab—they took 40 minutes to bring that (which is very high as most of the restaurants serve the starters within 15 minutes)—I was ready to wait as it is a difficult recipe. I had heard that proper Tunde Kabab needs 24 to 30 hours of preparation time (yes, hours, not minutes)!! My funda is simple—if I want to have special dish which requires time to be prepared, I am ready to wait.

Someone wrote that their Dahi Galouti was soft. It has to be soft. In fact, more soft a galouti kabab is, better is the quality. I have not tasted Galouti in any of the two places mentioned (Khaan saab or Lotus Palace)—but softness cannot be a negative quality in galouti kababs.

Someone wrote about big pieces of “alu” (potatoes) in Biriyani. Disappointing, I know. But not unheard of. And most of my friends will jump in joy listening this (why so, I would explain). This has a bit of history. When Wajid Ali Shah (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wajid_Ali_Shah), the nawab of Oudh, was deported from Lucknow to Kolkata (after the mutiny of 1857), he brought his cook along with him. The emperor was fan of mutton biriyani, and it had to be on his menu everyday. Now, since the emperor was living on a fund given by British (Rs 12 lakh per year)- it was difficult to live that lavishly (as along with emperor, at least 1500-2000 people, including his servants and courtiers). So his royal cook introduced “aloo’ (potatoes) in biriyani so that it would take less quantity of mutton to make same amount of biriyani. Since then, Lucknowi biriyani is served with “aloo” in Kolkata and is considered authentic by many. I never liked this “aloo” affair in biriyani, but many of my Bong friends are dying to have that biriyani in Hyderabad.

Awesome Tunde Kabab-- don't miss it!!!

Have it ever happened to you that you had been to a restaurant, liked their food, went again and ordered the same food? Probably many times. But it is bit unusual that you go to the same place in consecutive day since you were highly impressed in your first visit. That happened with me!

Went to Paradise area for some work on a Friday morning, but got late and felt hungry. While coming back from there, suddenly thought of going to Khan Saab (purely on impulse), and I was impressed so much that the next day (Saturday) evening, I again went along with my wife. This review is for both the visits.

I would not talk about the ambience as many burrpers had already talked about that.

The first thing that caught my attention in menu-card was “Tunde Kabab”. Those who are unaware of the name- this is a Lucknowi dish and one of my favourites. It is extremely difficult to make (as the inventor of the recipe and his next generation guarded the secret as well as the making process takes a whole day and very laborious), so very few restaurants serve this and still they don’t match the original taste. I lived in Lucknow for 2 years, and in those 2 years, almost each week I used to visit the original Tunde Kabab shop at Aminabad for first few months, and then a shop near Hajratgunj named “Dastarkhaan” for rest of the months. Tunde Kabab’s original shop is still my favourite, but they served beef and mutton kebab from same counter, and though I don’t have any slightest problem to that, my friend had.

I thought that I should take a risk and order this Tunde Kabab—so I did the same. For main course I ordered rumali roti with murgh kurchan. The Tunde Kabab turned out to be extremely good—and as the best Tunde Kabab I had after I left Lucknow. Murgh Kurchan was little disappointing as it tasted like a butter chicken dish in which the chef added plenty of onion rings.

Next day when I went with my wife, we again ordered Tunde Kabab and rumali roti (as starter), and biriyani for main course and rabri as dessert. All were good. It is one of the best North-Indian food in Hyderabad I had ever had. Though it is slightly heavy on pocket, I believe that it’s OK compared to the fine-dining experience one gets here.

There are only two things that are not so good:
1. I went to the toilet upstairs, and the buffet section was full. It looked like a mini-riot with almost 100 people inside and 20 more outside for their turn.
2. Tunde Kabab—though it was very good and I personally went to chef and thanked him—had small slices of onions. In original Tunde Kabab—it is just a paste where you can have the taste and aroma of the ingredients but cannot feel it.

My ratings:
Ambience (Weightage: 10%): 4.5/5
Service: (Weightage: 30%): 4.0/5
Food (Weightage: 30%): 4.5/5
Value for money (Weightage: 30%): 4.0/5

Only Ambience

He went with friends to have lunch at Khan Saab, GVK after listening so much about it, and by knowing its got Times Food award. After coming from their I doubt on the credibility of this award.
Only good thing about it is Ambience .. thats it.
Food is OK... the rest part is worst.
Soup, which they serve as Shoraba is too salty to have... rest menu is also like this only.
Service is pathetic... give order and forget it for next minimum 25mins.... Waiter doesn't have manners how to serve, manger doesn't know how to talk to customer, and manage. Half of the menu is missing, and you will get to know this after 30mins of ordering that what you have ordered thats not it kitchen.
And never try Chicked Biryani their, as it won't be as per your expectation, it will have one chicken piece, and rest will be big potato piece, and as per them its specialized.
So think 5times before choosing it as your dining..

Just wow..

On my brothers visit to Hyd I wondered where to take him for a sumptuous and yummylicious mughlai cuisine..thanks to burrp and finally my visit to khan saab happened.
We went around 9 in the evening and the ambience was beautiful, high set ceilings and dimly lit thou not dark..it was a very pleasing.
Coming to food we ordered many starters (thanks to the earlier reviews)including tunde kaba, mutton kababs, fish kabab and also had a round of paya shorba(this stuff had mixed reviews i didnt quite like it) rest all did. Coming to the main course we ordered kachi gosth ki biriryani , a paneer item, dal tadka, rotis and bhurani paratha, also two more fish and mutton gravy . (thou i don remember the names)
Now the veg items werent good here inclusing the paneer and dal and also the starter. And strictly this place is not for vegetariens.Non veg items were yummy.
This place is really nice to go with your family and its pricing is worth the food taste.
One more good point that I would add is that, my brothers kid was crying a lot and one of the waiters came over took him out and let us have our food without worry.
Altogether a pleasant experience and I would love to visit again..:)

Expensive But Good

We were very apprehensive of the food quality after seeing the reviews but still decided to give it a shot.

And VOILA things turned out perfectly...

The extremely lavishly designed interiors with beautiful paintings and an elephant greeting you at the doorstep gave a pretty good welcome.

We started with the Paya Shorba and Tunde Kabab. I've never been to Lucknow but the Kabab melted in the mouth just as my room mate had said. We then moved onto Masaledaar Machli Biriyani , Methi Murg and Burani parantha.
Though the quantity was less, the ghee on the burani parantha made the meal pretty heavy. Prompt service with quality food and courteous waiters made us overlook the extraordinary prices.

Overall the experience was excellent.
Meal for 2 is about Rs. 1000

Cheap and confused buffet

We went there for lunch and tried out their buffet. was crowded and the spread seemed to be good.

the worst was that the veg and non veg were totally jumbled up. the staff too had no clue what was veg and what was non veg. what they told me was veg turned out to be non veg.

in a group where there are mixed crowed it is difficult to avoid a non veg restaurant and one needs to be careful. the hotel staff need to be all the more careful about what they serve as they hurt peoples religious sentiments as well.

few members from our group did not eat at all due to this confusion. they placed a veg curry and non veg rice the same partitioned cheffing dish without proper name tags. thats the worst a restaurant can do.

if this wasnt india, they would be sued.

get back on track. just selling does not matter. be organised and systematic.

Two-and-a-half stars

First impressions mixed - the elevator to the restaurant dingy - took us to a floor higher and we walked down - the reception area 'impressive' with the elephant and all (!) and spacious - but the reception staff a bit dazed. The kakori-kabab far too pasty and spicy, the kandahar chicken had far too much tomato gravy. The dessert a rabdi look-alike so so - the tandori roti not as inviting and the paratha of sorts on the heavy side. The captain was the talkative type, the waiters quiet and friendly. Think someone tried to get close to the Sahib Sindh Sultan, but with a lot of 'typos' :) .... Try once and decide for yourselves, if you like it or not....

Just show, no substance!

After hearing a lot of good reviews about Khaan Saab, we decided to try it out one evening..But our experience turned out to be very sour..The restaurant has a grand looking ambience, increasing your hopes of getting a similar kind of food too. The names of dishes are royally carved in the menu but the taste is just HORRIBLE.
The paneer tikka in starter was so spicy that we just had to gulp it with water..
The other starter (some kind of spring roll) was too hard with no taste absolutely..and half cooked..
The main course was even bad..the quantity of dishes is very less. The koftas were so hard that we just couldnt cut through them using a spoon and fork..
The paneer dish was so average - something you can get in a road side restaurant..
We were so let down with the food quality..and to top it all the service is pathetic..every time we had to call the waiter to serve us water..and wait for 5-10 minutes to get it ...

I just wish and hope that we have some quality restaurants open up in Hyderabad rather than just showoff ones..having a grand hall, silver cutlery and a huge elephant in the foyer is all waste when the food is pathetic! Hope someone is listening...

Apart from the ambience its a total let down.

Watched the kungfu panda movie last week @ Gvk 1 and went to dinner at Khansaab hearing it was good from burrp reviews. I was severely disappointed . The theme the grandeur and the ambience was very unique and good but the most basic important thing of a restaurant THE FOOD wasn't up to any mark. I have had better fares served at single outlet joints.
The names of the food is from the Mughal era and i would have been delighted if the quantity of the food or the quality of the food be from that era let the prices be a tad bit higher i wouldn't have minded that. But all you get is half cooked or halfheartedly made starters to small to fill a single persons tummy, that to after 45 mins after ordering.

My sincere suggestion if the hotel management is seeing this would be to Immediately have a reality check and please grandeur and ambience are needed for a restaurant but could we have some decent food as well and please do take customer reviews. So that the place gets better.
My rating for this would be poor. Had very high hopes but was totally let down.

a place to be

Khaan saab has been a royal experience. After having dined at this place thrice so far, i still feel like dining in there. The name 'khaan saab' itself makes me hungry. I'm out of words to describe the food. it is just mind blowing.
The ambience is just perfect. There is a huge elephant piece in the lobby, the best lobby in city so far. the huge painting in the hall, the beautiful imported antelope head add beauty to the hall. Not to forget, the cutlery is beautiful, made me feel royal.
The service is reasonably good, was reasonable to serve within half an hour for the amount of crowd that was present.
Overall i loved the place, and am waiting to have another go this week. Guys you gotta check this place out especially if you wanna take your girl out ;)

Only Hype but, no quality of Food

Recently been to "Khan Saab" for dinner. The entrance foyer is one of the best in our city with a gigantic elephant ( 12 feet + in height) that welcomes you.

When you enter the decor is predominant indian and afghani with couple of lovely huge paintings of afghan demi-gods and room is so big, its like a hall with a staircase leading to another section on top. Later we found this "hall" was noisy and clanking of cutlery too disturbing.

We ordered the following

1. Tomato Shorba ( 2 No's) : Rs.160
Very good

2. Dahi Galaouti : Rs.190
Four small pieces of round shaped kebabs which were a tad too soft. I mean,it was so soft it was almost like paste and loaded with green chillis. Not to our liking. Couldnt help compare it with same stuff from Food "N" I/Lotus Palace. Their Dahi Galouti was to die for.

3. Laal Mirchi ka Chicken Tikka (Rajasthani style) : Rs. 220
It was so bloody spicy it was tough for me and wifey couldnt eat it. But, it was marinated well and tasty. Overall, not too happy with it

4. Veg Tikka in Green Gravy: Rs.190
This was medium spicy and quite good

5. Burhani Paranth ( Rs.50), Garlic Olive Naan ( Rs.90 per Naan) and Rotis : Burhani Parantha is a must try. It tastes like curry-puffs that you eat in bakeries but, quite good.

Garlic Naan was ridiculously below average and dont know why they charged it so exorbitantly.

Rotis were average

6. Mocktails : Rs.400

Damages : 1600 including tips ( Btw, there is no service charge and VAT is 14.5%. Not sure if that's the right percentage or their charge higher %)

Overall, taste of the food was not impressive at all, it was almost below average but, was pleasantly surprised to see their pricing is quite moderate. Maybe we ordered all the wrong things.

Good food, moderate pricing

Went there for dinner last night. Starters were ok and small portions but the food was good. their choice of parathas is excellent.
service staff is courteous. they follow up well after every dish is served and take proper feedback and suggestion.

unpleasant exp!!!

I was at the restaurant with my family for dinner. The food, service and the overall feel was completely in contrast to what we had in our mind, before we arrived there. We pretty much tried all the items recommended to us by the waiter, and none of them were dishes worth any applauds, they were very ordinary in taste and absolutely were not worth the cost. The service is not even to the standards of what we are already used to at other places, in fact the person who took my order even skipped a dish in spite of making a note of it in the KOT, and was later arguing with me on this issue. After finishing our starters we had to wait for a full 35 min for our main course, and when I asked the waiter the reason for the delay, he said it usually takes about 15 mins to prepare any main course dish, but I was never told about this when he took the order from us. We just ordered biryani which usually is either kept ready or served the fastest compared to any other main course dish.
The only one good thing about the restaurant is, it is very convenient to access it, there is an exclusive valet service, the elevator is close by where u drop u r car, the elevator stops right in front of the restaurant lobby. i think they also have the best lobby, compared to any other fine dining restaurants in hyd. The interiors in the restaurant are decent, seating is all right.

Mughal Touch

Ambiance : 5/5
Service: 3/5
Food: 5/5

I wanted to review but couldn't find any suitable joint until last Saturday. 3 of had plans to watch Dil to Bachcha Hai Ji at INOX and have food somewhere outside. While climbing the escalator at INOX my eyes flickered at the pictures of food and something written on small banner which I did not care to notice much though inquisitive.

Once the movie got over, I purposefully checked out the banner placed outside the hall. Little ambiguous whether to try a new joint and price factors we made up our mind to give it a shot.

The entrance looked a little dorky since it was beside the washrooms. The lift took us from 4th floor to 5th Floor and then another lift took us from 5th to 4th to the entrance of Khaan Saab. It was a mini jigsaw puzzle we dared not to solve but follow our escort. Once entered I was little amazed with the decors, grandeurs and not to forget the huge elephant statue placed at the entrance.

Feeling enchanted we made us it in a huge table. Old hindi music was playing all through and we were given the huge menu cards to choose l'appétit. There were huge list of items but interesting few. We made up our mind to try mix of chicken & fish. Masaledar machchi biriyani accompanied by Murgh mughal e Darbar accompanied by Baluchistan Kalmi Kabab to start with. The food was tender, juicy and lip smacking. We felt lie saying, 'I'm Loving it'.

Only thing which niggled the experience was the over enthusiastic servicemen, they seemed too caring which at times becomes irritation.

The portions served was well off to fill 2 stomach and save a little too. The pricing was effective and affordable to the standard of the place.

Overall, I would says cheers to another fine dining. A must try!
