The large, shady zoo is somewhat depressing, with animals pacing up and down in their small enclosures, but you must enter it if you...
Cafe Coffee Day
Our favourite Indian coffee chain – known as CCD by locals – sits in prime position at the beginning of MG Rd's upscale shopping district.
This little bakery sells cakes, cookies and a small selection of sandwiches and is recommended.

Moti Mahal Restaurant information
If Mughlai meat country has got you down, seek refuge in this popular veg hideaway on MG Rd. It's perfect for a late breakfast (best poori sabji – deep fried bread rounds served with potato curry – we had in UP!) or lunch. Come evening, head upstairs for more-refined dining in the good-quality, low-lit air-con restaurant.
You could do worse here than try the Lucknow dum aloo (potatoes stuffed with nuts and paneer in a tomato-based sauce) and the kadhai paneer (paneer in a gravy made of capsicum, tomato, onion and traditional Indian spices) makes a stunning case for vegetarianism. It's all excellent.
