2. Oly Pub
The second place I would like to talk about is the Oly Pub. Oly Pub is one of the oldest restaurants in the city. It is famous for 2 things, the first being the amazing food the second is the rate at which it serves liquor. Beside this pub, there are many discos; and many people usually drink and eat here first and then they go to the night club so that they could save money. The signature dishes here are Chicken ala kiev and steaks. One thing that you might notice is that the staff isn’t that friendly but all these complaints go away when they serve the food on the table.

3. Peter Cat
Peter Cat is one of the most iconic restaurants in this particular area. People travel from very far places to have their sizzlers.

The seating place at this particular place is very limited and on weekdays people wait for hours to get inside. So, if you are planning to go to this place then I would suggest that you reach here as early as possible to avoid the long ques.

Mocambo was a very popular restaurant at a point of time. A few years back it got involved in a controversy in which it was accused of stopping a driver to enter its restaurant because according to them he was not properly dressed. The ratings of this restaurant were above 4.2/5 which feel to 2.7 after this incident. It was boycotted by the people for a long time, the restaurant had issued an apology to the people of the city later. The ratings have improved over time. You can try Chicken Alakeiv, Chicken Paprika and their sizzlers here.
