Hard a lot about this place … Worst place ever.. Bad food.. No hygiene…. Bad smell Nd very dirty around the restaurant
I born n brought up in lucknow since my childhood i have been eating tunday. Mouth watering kabab patatha excellent quality of food as well as services. Only available in his chowk and aminabad restaurants . Rest all restaurants are franchisee so all are useless.
You must visit this place when you are in Lucknow and try Tunday kebabs with Mughlai paratha.
Biriyani is good. Seating arrangements not very great.
Beware of multiple fake branches by the name of grandson of tunday kebabi etc.
If you are visiting Lucknow and are a gourmet (or even a gourmand!) this place must be there on your list of must sees. This place is famous for its Galaoti kebabs – beef or mutton minced and mixed with spices as a very soft preparation that melts in your mouth (legend has it that a royal chef had prepared this kebab for the appetite of his Nawab who had no teeth to chew on meat) – with rumaali roti, this becomes an absolute delicacy!
As the story goes Tunday Mian the owner of the place accidently lost his half hand,and that is how he is called Tunday,now Kebab at his eating joint is known as Tunday Ke Kebab,which are mouth watering and melts in mouth,another story goes like this…The Nabab’s of Lucknow after getting high don’t have energy to chew meat so they used to have these Kebabs to melt in mouth that is how it is known as Galauti (Melting) Kebab.once in Lucknow one must try these Kebab with Paratha or Rumali Roti and some Biryani.
The moment I landed in Lucknow I was desperate to hit this place. Had to wait for a good 15 minutes to get a table. The place was over crowded, not much hygienic and noisy. When the food came in nothing else mattered.The Galoutis were the best I ever had. The blend of meat with the spices were just right and had been on the tawa for the right amount of time making the kebabs soft and melting in the mouth The korma pulav (read Biryani) was on the greasier side. I had overstuffed myself and have no remorse for the same and wouldnt mind doing it again and again. Surely not a place to be misssed when in Lucknow !!!
We visited the Ahminabad location on Naaz Cinema Road first, there’s a takeaway option and also a restaurant at the back. There is a separate room for women and families, which we were led into.
Service was good and friendly and they didn’t mind us taking lots of photos.
Mutton and beef kebabs were good and as advertised, melt in the mouth and wonderfully spicy. Sherwaal and Mughlai Paratha were superb.
The original Tundays (in Chowk) only serves beef kebabs – (no mutton), same great taste and wonderful paratha in a slightly more grungy, century old environment.
Everytime I pass by Chowk and Aminabad… I am have to visit Tunday no matter how long the queue maybe. The Kabab and Paratha both have no other match. The melting of the Kabab in mouth and the softness of the Paratha makes you fall in love with it. Though the hygiene is an issue but, to experience one of the best Dishes in the world (undoubtedly) you will have to forego the hygiene and the crowd. Experience Tunday if you are in my City, for sure you wont find the great taste anywhere else in whole world.
