Had tried many vegetarian dishes and all having great taste and don't forget Biryani here."


"We are living in Seattle area for 7 years and never found a good north Indian restaurant. We recently tried Bukhara and it was first of a kind. Awesome food and flavours. Mutton Rogan Josh is a must have, Chicken 65 is awesome, Chicken biryani is good, Paneer pakoda's are unique with mint chutney in between. Overall, very satisfying experience. After a long time, north Indian food at its best."

"Only advice I will give is to careful with the spice level. If you are used to 4, make sure you order 3 or 2."
