RAJDHANI EXPRESS

Express Avenue mall has this restaurant,last time when we went there we didnt chk it. But then someone said that this is a chain restaurant and have good, so we thought of trying this week.
And we were in for a disappointment. They serve thaalis and food was very mediocre .Nothing very tasty,though it was usual affair
Buttermilk,
Dhokla,layered samosa
6-vegetables and daal but nothing was tasty,
boiled rice and khichdi
phulka,makki ki chapati and poori, papad
White rasogulla,malpua..it was good and kheer..very insipid
service was not very good, every time we had to call the bearer, and ambiance is also very ordinary.
At the rate of 300/ per person its not worth it at all, if one compares the same type of food, Mansukh is much better.
I wouldnt ever go there again

MANSUKH

I have been hearing about this place for a long time, once I went there , but couldnt find it, this weekend we got lucky and tried it.

It is a small place but food is good. We tried Maharaja Thali.
It is a thali with unlimited quantity and fixed varieties.
Chhaach.sour curd with salt and pepper and mint is served as appetiser and in the starters there are three snack..dhokla,cutlets and kachori...all of them are very tasty, so we start with a pleasure:)

In the main dish we have gujarati kadhi,paneerveg, daal,one more curry, dahi vada, chapati, poori,rice, curd rice and,papad.

For the desserts..carrot halwa, rasmalai and icecream..I just loved the first two.
If one doesnt want to take thali, they have all sort of parathas and other snacks and sweets too.

And end it with Paan.
All this for 160/..per thaali.

Ambiance is just ok and so is the service, but food is delicious and value for money is more even.and they have all gujarati snacks and north Indian too.
