We visited various stores selling chikan work for both everyday wear as well as party wear. Their collection and quality is better and is price competitive than other places in the area. I would make that my one stop shop for wearable clothing each time I visit Lucknow. The staff (Simran and Seema) spent an hour and a half very patiently with us. Their collections in georgette and cotton are both exquisite in lovely colors and fine craftsmanship. We bought both kinds, in ready to wear as well as fabric. We went to Sewa and Aman also and bought from there too, but when we reached Ada it was clear that their prices were the same and offered much better quality.

Hi. I did my shopping thru Whatsap and Priti and Shefali are the staff who are very professional and helped me to shop for my whole family. I also end up buying half a dozen of mens kurti and pathani too. Overall great honesty and good service. No doubt what we received is more better than what we expected. A 5 * always.
