Anonna C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Oct. 2, wrote, "The food is exceptional. The Dahi Puri, Chicken tikka macaroni and cheese, lamb burger and chicken tikka Kathi roll are my favorite dishes. I love everything on the menu and have no complaints. Gully has taken average home-cooked food and elevated it to a dynamite eating experience that's filled with culture and memories. I highly recommend everyone try it out."
