What was supposed to be a casual dinner, turned out to be a “night of terrors”. It wasn’t such a 'Lucky’ feeling for me and my family on my visit to this restaurant on October 5, 2016. One of my worst experience in a restaurant. Well they say,“ Form is temporary but class is permanent”. Its indeed true for a place like this joint. When they were at the peak of their business they managed to con an ocean of devout followers, serving authentic dum “Biryani’s”. But looks like it’s all going downhill. Proving a point is more important for the management and the waiters, than getting a dish right. Seems like the winning formula here is to intensify the flavour of chillies packed in every dish. What is overwhelming with every bite is the engulfing taste of chillies coating your taste buds which isn’t appealing to the senses. The waiter concluded that they would alter the level of spice to suit our palette. The appetizers arrived doused in chilly powder and the papads were burnt like a skin tan from the scorching sun. How can someone get something so basic, wrong?! We followed it up with seekh kababs which was alright, the chicken tandoori arrived cold as if right out of the morgue. Prawns Koliwada looked shriveled and unappetizing, like they beat it to its death.
The raita is an accompaniment to balance the spices in a main course, but they ruined that too. And the chicken biryani in its state was a sad demise.
When you hear about lucky restaurant the only word that comes to mind is their biryani! The chicken and mutton biryani is the best .. Its so pocket friendly!
The kebabs also are really tasty .. This place is always very crowded..I also like their chicken tandoori a lot but specially go there for their chicken biryani..Its heaven for biryani lovers and trust me there are not a lot of good places to have some good biryani at such cheap prices..
Lucky's biryani is so famous it is always splashed in newspapers too and many celebs are also its fan..I like the chicken and mutton biryani a lot too, and chicken cutlet and seekh kebab are also delicious..this is one of those places I have never tasted any veg dish because I don't see the point and I don't think it would be tastier than the non veg dishes anyway,maybe I am wrong but I will stick to the chicken and mutton biryani!
my family is full of carnivores who actually cannot cook non veg food well but will leave no opportunity to order it! Lucky's biryani is ordered in our house atleast once every month for my hubby especially who attacks it like the last piece of food on this planet! he cannot stop singing its praises so all the stars are just for biryani,never had anything else from here!
