With an elaborate menu of the buffet table, guests here have the chance to dwell into the refined flavours of Awadhi cuisine, which include the aromatic biryanis, succulent kebabs and the imperial finesse of kormas, among others. The place also serves a special Yakhni Mutton Dum Biryani, that blends in a smooth yoghurt base with the richness of a saffron-based mutton broth. And that's not all! The food selections go beyond the rustic taste to include the goodness of thin-crust pizzas, oriental noodle choices and other delicacies, to add variety to your palate.

Leaving the best for the last, let's talk about the deserts here! There is no way that you can possible get done with your meal at The Big Grill without a slice (or even two, who's counting anyway) of its sweet treats.
