The Kaarigari on the walls of Diya, @theleelagandhinagar, is hypnotising. When you proceed to have the first taste of the food, you realise the hypnotism isn't limited to the Karigari on the walls, and you have now been possessed!

The minute attention given to the tiniest of the elements, be it the ambience or the technique of preparing food, be it the way ‘khadaa masala’ is treated for the kebabs or the way the tables are set with Silver cutlery on a table that’s ready to host you for as long as it takes to satiate your craving for a beautiful Indian meal, makes the experience at Diya - Whole.

The ceiling, hand-made chandeliers, the spell-binding fragrance of kebabs and the sight of fresh Naan coming out of Tandoors; all of this (and more) collectively hit all your senses. The highlight of this restaurant is Chef Javed – for the uninitiated, he has a ‘Qureshi’ lineage from Lucknow, which means he is genetically programmed to belt out some lipsmacking delicacies of a very delicately complex cuisine and make it look like his average Tuesday, while at it. So far, Chef Javed is like an urban legend for us, since we've heard a lot about him, from a lot of people, but haven’t met him, despite having visited Diya over four times now (our last visit was on last Monday, when we learnt that Chef had gone to celebrate Eid with his family ❤️)

Here’s what our table usually looks like :

Nawabi Kakori
Nimbu Kasundi Mahi Tikka
Hyderabadi Jalli Kebab
Peshawari Chap
Jaituni Paneer Tikka
Pan ke Patte ki Chaat
Rara Gosht
Palak Bathua ka Saag
Dal Diya Khas
Murgh Dum Biryani
Truffle Flavoured Parmesan Naan
Roomali Roti
Tender Coconut Kheer
Anjeer aur Khajoor ka Halwa

If you’re someone like @rohanbhatt who has travelled to Lucknow, just for the Galauti and the Biryani, know that the Nawabi Kakori WILL save you a trip to Lucknow!

We fell in love with the Dal Diya Khas as well as that Naan (Beautiful flavours!). The menu has some very interesting introductions like the Choliya Kamal Kakdi ka Mel and Kasore ka Kadaknath (a famous breed of black chicken from tribal areas of M.P)
There are also some great vegetarian options!
