  1. AOA,
    First all I would to say "Thank you for all what doing, keep it up. You are doing great ". I have ordered you food and must say I love your expect Nihari. When in general we talk about Nihari it must full of flavors', but yours was missing some spices.

    But again I don't mean that it was good. Its taste different then Nihari.

    Again, Okra and lobia daal was full of flavours.

    Thanks & wish you best of luck.
