Mama Chicken

Top choice dhaba in Agra

This superstar dhaba (casual eatery) is a must: duelling veg and nonveg glorified street stalls employ 24 cooks during the rush, each of whom handles outdoor tandoors, grills or pots. They whip up outrageously good 'franky' rolls (like a flatbread wrap) – including a buttery-soft chicken tikka variety – along with excellent chicken curries, superb naan breads and evening-only chicken tandoori momos (Tibetan dumplings).

Eat standing at outside tables or cram into the air-con dining room. Bright lights, obnoxious signage and funky Indian tunes round out the festive atmosphere – a surefire Agra must-try.
