Their noodles are legendary and if you're getting some, make sure to get the Chicken Chilly Garlic Chowmein! It is hot, it is savoury and it has perfectly diced chicken pieces for every mouthful.

The White Sauce Pasta is another must-have here- the smooth white sauce, the perfectly al dente pasta and the accompanying garlic bread is a wonderful treat to any Italian food lover in the city. They have a great selection of pizzas too, so if you're looking for a pizza with an Indian flare, this is where you need to be.

They have a ton of other great options too, from burgers, sandwiches, to dosas and your everyday North-Indian delicacies. We have to say, the cold coffee and the dessert shakes here are pretty good too, so make sure you try them all.
