    Sainik Dhabha: An excellent place to savor dhabha food

    by vpas Written Feb 20, 2013

    This is a road side dhabha or eateries which are found on highways. It is an absolutely no frills place. Very spartan and basic. They serve fresh food that is authentically local. You should insist on low spice and less oil if you want it that way.

    Favorite Dish: Kadak rotis, jeera alu, dal tadka and salad. There is a small shop outside selling pan/betel leaves, nuts and other mouth freshners.

    Aryan chain of food joints: Nothing to rave about! Multi cuisine

    by vpas Written Feb 20, 2013

    I would not say that the food was bad. But it does not have the local flavours. It is however good to eat here, since it is clean and hygienic and has standard menus. They serve both veg and non vegetarian food. We went here since we had to grab a quick lunch before boarding our flight.

    Favorite Dish: We had veg. thali or plate meals which had two rotis, one paneer curry, one dal, some salad, one sweet, jeera rice, paapad, pickles and curd raita. Each thali cost us Rs. 160

    Green chilli pickle served gratis!

    This is a no frills place Vegetarian restaurant serving at a super speed local delicacies. You have to mention to them if you do not want too much oil in your food.

    Favorite Dish: We had Sarson ka saag (Mustard leaves gravy) makki ki roti (corn bread), dal tadka, dal makhni, jeera rice and also a paneer dish. All were yummy, only the jeera rice was a bit too oily.
    They also serve desserts but we chose to eat it at the counter outside. The best part was that a good meal for 4 cost us only Rs. 375.

  • 7 Spice Restaurant: Yummie Deshi Food

    by cuteguy1987 Written Jul 4, 2012

    To begin with I kinda liked the location of 7 Spice. Inside a complex and hence its peaceful despite being in an overcrowded Alambagh market. Though a few may tend to disagree with me, but when it comes to dine out I always love to go to restaurants that are peaceful. Also the thing that goes in their favor is they are one of the very few real restaurants in the area. Aaryan is self service restaurant and obviously not a place to go dine out with family.
    Food - Yummie. I give 10/10 when it comes to food.
    Service- Service is kinda above average. Serves just right.
    Overall a nice experience.

    Favorite Dish: Chillie Chicken
    Karhai Paneer
    Both dishes are mouth watering

    by 8eight8 Written Jul 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When it comes to dining, Lucknow is a culinary delight as the Awadh region has its own distinct Nawabi style cuisine, with various kinds of biryanis, kebabs and breads like 'sheermal' / 'roomali roti' all very popular delicacies.
    Seekh Kababs
    Seekh Kababs

    Lucknow has also pioneered the slow-fire cooking called Dum Pukht. The world-famous chef Imtiaz Qureishi hails from Lucknow.

    With several bakeries in town, the sweet-toothed are never go unsatisfied. The delicious cakes, pastries and the traditional Keiser-pista biscuits are sure to make you come back for more.

    The city has a range of fine restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets.

    From 'Oudhyana' 'Zaika' 'Royal Cafe' 'Falaknuma' 'Dastarkhwan' 'Daal Mein Kaala' 'Naushi-Jaan' to fastfood joints like Pizza Hut, McDonalds to traditional eateries like 'Tundeys' and 'Rahims' in the Akbari Gate area the choice is wide.

    Makkhan Malai, 'Malai Ki Gilori' of Ram Asrey (an oldest shop of pure ghee sweets, established in 1805) Chowk , the famous Tundey Kebabs, named after the one-armed chef Haji Murad Ali,[12] and 'Kakori kebabs' are very popular with food lovers.

    A street food court with a number of street-side restaurants and eating joints are also present in China Bazaar (near Tulsi theatre) serving affordable Avadhi-Mughlai-Punjabi remix cuisine.

    The Chaat in Lucknow is on a par with the best you will get anywhere in the country. There are quite a few places serving outstanding chaat, like Shukla Chaat in Ganeshganj, Moti Mahal, Radhey Lal in Aliganj Chhappan Bhog in Sadar and Mahesh Sweets in Nirala Nagar, Neel Kanth in Gomtinagar(Vivek Khand) and mohan sweets in bhootnath indira nagar . Actually, you can pretty much have Chaat in any corner of Lucknow and never be disappointed.

    Favorite Dish: After a delicious dinner, one can have Paan from the shops Malhotra Pan Bhandar near K.D. Singh Babu Stadium and the State Bank of India.

    For the adventure loving people the [b]Fauzi Dhaba [/b] situated on Sitapur Road near Chaata Meel is a favourite hot spot. Driving among crazy truckers and then a homely diet surely gives a delight to the tongue.

    Pizza Hut: Something familiar!

    by Willettsworld Written Jun 23, 2007

    Yes, yes I know but I liked to have a break from Indian food and even though Lucknow is famed for its Mughal cuisine, I came here for lunch which proved to be quite expensive compared with other choices around. The place wasn't busy and only had a few young girls eating inside. The pizza's are either veggie or chicken as both ham and beef products are a strict no-no here. Good service but expensive.

    Moments: Traditional Muslim food

    by Willettsworld Written Jun 23, 2007

    I headed to this place just round the corner from my hotel called Moments (as mentioned in LP) where they serve Shami and Sishk kebabs, being as Lucknow is very Muslim orientated. I had 4 small patty like Shami kebabs which weren't that spicy and kinda made from flakey meat not the hard compact meat like we get back home. Still they were a local specialty and they did the trick. Nice little place.
