This restaurant is almost always heaving - it’s the Qureshi name, synonymous with royal Awadhi cuisine, that draws customers in every night of the week. Brothers Ashfaque and Irfan have inherited all their culinary skills from father Imtiaz Qureshi, one of the most respected chefs in India, especially when it comes to ‘dum pukht’ fare. Kebabs are a treat here and, surprisingly, even the vegetarian offerings are on par with meat specialities.

For mains, the lucknowi biryani, lamb nahari gosht, and jhinga (prawn) masala are all standouts....and fiery hot, so if you want things mild, it’s best to say so while ordering or you’ll be left braving mouthfuls with a pint in hand. You’ll find the best service in town here, with a friendly restaurant manager doing the rounds, happily suggesting dishes to hesitant diners. The only downside is that the setting is straight out of a confusing Bollywood set with mood lighting, stained glass windows and a band that croons ghazals all night long. While the Indian singers are some of the best we’ve heard, it can get uncomfortably loud, so just skip the polite conversation and tuck in.

Came to try out this place for lunch today. Not crowded for a Saturday. Pappadums and condiments were nice. For staters, we ordered Paneer Tkka and Kakori Kebab. The paneer was good but it really came to life only after the addition of salt and lime. Before the Kakori Kebab could melt in the mouth it had a breakdown on the plate itself. It was alright but not too great. For mains, we ordered the Dhaba chicken and Subz meloni. The chicken was a richly spiced affair with soft meat pieces. Subz meloni was a innovative take on the palak(spinach) paneer where the paneer is substituted with other vegetables like green beans, peas andcauliflower. My only grouse is that it looked too unnaturally green. Desserts were Shahi Tukra and Kulfi Falooda. Richly sweet both the dishes. Kulfi Falooda was no different than what you would find anywhere else though the Shahi Tukra was different. The bill alongwith a bottle of water came to Dhs.210 minus tip and minus cost of subz meloni.

After finding out that we'd definitely have to reserve a table on a Friday, we were surprised to arrive for lunch at a mostly empty restaurant. Shame since Qureshi's gave us a 25% dicount on the bill at lunchtime.

With no natural lighting the decor can get a bit monotonous, but the food makes up for it. We asked for an extra spicy version of the Dhaba Chicken which lived up to it's name - the spongy khamiri roti is perfect for soaking up all its flavourful juices. The kebabs we tried - the chicken seekh and the melt-in-your-mouth kakori were done just right. A great place for kebab and curry devotees alike.
