What we don’t like

  • It's a bit on the expensive side

Koyla Chai is the perfect place to go whether you’re looking for a casual night out with friends or want to treat your family to a nice meal. You’ll be able to find something everyone will love on their menu that offers multiple cuisines, plus traditional tea and paratha options. Their mesmerizing ambiance, open rooftop seating area, live music, and poolside views create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.

Be sure to try the Koyla Chai Matka Biryani, a signature dish made with basmati rice, spices, and chicken, Beef, or lamb cooked in a clay pot. For something lighter, order the Chicken Tikka or Vegetable Pakora. And don’t forget to enjoy a cup of Koyla Chai tea, made with milk, spices, and black tea leaves.

Explore and enjoy.

The chicken was tender and cooked through, while the rice carried a lot of flavors. It also came with excellent raita on the side. After finishing our biryani, we decided to try Matka Chai (smoked tea, which was really good!
