Lucknow's G.T. Road launches a full bar alongside its premium North Indian buffet
If you're a fan of good North Indian food, you surely know or have heard about G.T. Road's grand buffet. A true North Indian fiesta, G.T. Road follows the cuisine along the grand Trunk Road, its robust flavours, aromatic spices and the quintessential regional food.
From light fluffy biryani, to spicy Pindi chole and decadent balushahi, you will find all that you crave, served in magnificent bowls, copper plates or simply steaming at a grill in the middle of your table.
However, the only thing missing from the menu till now was the booze. But it's time to rejoice and visit G.T. Road more often, because your favourite buffet place has introduced a full bar with their awesome buffet.
Booze, Buffet and Grandiose
If you've ever dined at the G.T. Road you know that the best thing about their buffet and the most distinguishing quality is the exceptional service and the elegant setting. The place is as grand as can be and we have enjoyed all of our lunches, dinners and family gatherings here, with much adoration for the fine detail that has been provided to everything.
From the serve-ware to the way that the dishes have been arranged, everything is thought of and reminiscing a time of sophistication, charm and wonderment.
The entire theme has finally come full circle with the introduction of the bar and we couldn't be more excited about it! Who can deny the wonder a glass of wine alongside some good food does to your mood. There's an inherent, undeniable charm that comes with good booze, good food and good company. We just cannot wait to head there, dine like royalty and drink like them too.
There isn't much that hasn't been already said about G.T. Road, so no matter how many visits you make to the place, you'll always be left wanting more. The fact that we can now get delicious cocktails, beer and more to complete the dining experience only adds to the allure of the place and we're heading there the first chance we get.
P.S. Do try the Yakhni Pulao (biryani), the besan laddoos and the fresh jalebis that are served on order; the palak patta chaat and chicken barra is exceptional too.
Location: Ground Floor, The Summit, Vibhuti Khand, Gomti Nagar
When it comes to coffee and Lucknow, we often mistake the concept to be new, foreign. alien or even something we just can't relate to. Yet, Lucknow and coffee go a long way back, to the Victorian era when the smell of dark roasted coffee wasn't an everyday thing and those who drank the dark elixir were considered to be of a different class. Yet, for some time Lucknow and coffee's love affair seem to have taken a sabbatical, for the city's longer affair with tea seems to have overtaken everyone's minds.
In present times, Lucknow has emerged as a city with a plethora of places, particularly cafes, for you to chill at with your friends and even family. But cut back to the era of 2015-2016, Lucknowites didn't really have a lot of options to choose from and then came in Homey's Cafe at Gomti Nagar, to shush our cribbings and cravings in the most vibrant and delicious ways! With its lush outdoor garden seatings and colourful murals, posters and art adorning the interiors, Homey's Cafe has paved the way for a thriving cafe culture in Lucknow.
