Richly deserved kudos go to Gazebo, which has retained its elevated status among the city’s curry cabal in the face of some stern competition. There’s no great mystery to why this place is still so enduringly popular after all these years – it presses all the right buttons with value-seekers everywhere by sticking to the tried and tested tenet of offering great food at rock-bottom prices.
The lengthy menu focuses on dishes from Lucknow and Hyderabad, two of India’s most renowned culinary hotspots. The food is a cut above your standard bhuna in terms of imagination; a tawa masala is laden with meaty chunks of lobster stir-fried in a curry of spring onion, tomato and black pepper, while the tender lamb in the achari gosht is fired up by a sauce of tamarind, fennel and sundried tomatoes.
On the downside, the service can be somewhat slow, and the highly spiced food is not for the faint-hearted, but for reliable tucker at low, low prices you won’t find much better.
