Spices and colours are something that suits the Indian palate. The restaurant doesn’t matter, what matters is the food. Here are two North Indian restaurants-Deccan Gymkhana, Pune that serves awesome tasting food.
Café GoodLuck (North Indian restaurants-Deccan Gymkhana, Pune):
This is one restaurant that requires a special mention even if it doesn’t meet any criteria of fine-dine option. Café GoodLuck! This restaurant is located on F.C. Road in Deccan Gymkhana area, Pune near IIPM Pune. What to say about the ambience? No-frills yet functional; locals throng here for all four meals of the day.
The food is the best part of the restaurant. Café GoodLuck is the oldest Iranian restaurant of Pune with a certain Irani taste in everything they have on offer. If you haven’t visited Café GoodLuck yet, we would advise you to drop by this restaurant today itself. What can you have? Bun Maska and Irani chai are their signature order for breakfast. The other specialities include tandoori and tawa dishes, Bheja fry, variety of egg options, Mutton Masala, Chicken Chilli Fry, Green Chicken, Tawa Gosht, and Muton Rassa.
