Your one-stop guide to the best of Lucknow, curated by those who know Lucknow best

Now Lucknow is an insider’s guide to all things Lakhnawi, and we don’t just mean kebabs, biryani and Rumi Darwaza. Of course, we will tell you where you can find the best kebabs in town, but we also want to tell you about so much more that the city has to offer. From eating out to ordering in, from culture to cafes, from outdoor activities for kids and indoor venues for parties, from chikan for cheap to bespoke boutiques, from weekend plans to shopping sprees – if you’ve ever thought about it, we will talk about it.
