Ambiance: Located in C-block of Connaught Place, Barush is a lounge that serves liquor at MRP *excluding* taxes. It’s on 1st floor; nothing special about this place to recognize but interiors was quite nice also they have a separate private area to have a small party with friends. And a smoking zone.

Menu: It is a good alternative to the adjoining MRP cafe if you don’t like loud music and the seating is comfortable too. They only had few options available in drinks. Every other brand was out of stock. Food’s quality is also amazing. But the variety is very less. They should definitely increase their food menu and keep offering drinks at MRP 😉

What we had: We had Veg Hakka Noodles worth INR 195. They were finely tossed with fresh vegetables. The quality was good. They provided three different sauces with the noodles. We also had Nachos and Corn Bhel with a refreshing Mocktail.

Attitude Kitchen & Bar, Connaught Place: Food Review

Attitude Kitchen & Bar

Address: N-12, Outer Circle, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk, Gate No. 6

Cuisines: North IndianContinentalItalian

Opening Hours: 12 Noon to 1 AM

Cost: ₹1,000 for two people (approx.)

Cash and cards accepted.

Contact: +91 9910731666

Ambiance: Attitude? Naaaa!! The name doesn’t go with the restaurant image.  In spite of the less than a palatable name, this is one of the most unobtrusive places in CP. For starters, you can expect to get a seat nearly anytime of the week. While the more seasoned pub crawler might be attracted to age old Blues next door, the eating out crowd is pulled away by the large no. of restaurants nearby. What remains is a quaint little place where you can go and drink in peace over a long time without being bothered by bar hoppers. The place is one of laid back and a little dingy on the ambiance. Thus, less crowded.

Menu: While the drinks menu is cheap, finger food is incredulously expensive, like elsewhere.

What we had: We tried Golden-Fired Mushrooms with Tartar Sauce worth INR 295. But the taste was a dampener. We also had Heineken for INR 150.

Service: Service is fast and efficient although the number of waiters is disproportionate to the available clientele and it’s a bit disturbing the way they are always on the lookout to serve you.

Recommendation: CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP!! Well, that is the only reason to be here.

Veg Tacos

TGI Fridays, Noida

Address: The Great India Place, 319-320, 3rd Floor, Sector 38A, Noida, Uttar Pradesh-201301

Phone number: 090691 43886

Nearest Metro Station: Noida Sector 18

Cuisines: American, Tex-Mex

Opening Hours: 12 PM 12 AM

Cost: Rs. 2500 approximate for two.

Ambiance: Slow music, dim lights, comfortable chairs, excitement shudders the moment you enter the restaurant. Whatever the day is you will feel the elation of Friday inside the restaurant. They say it truly “In here it’s always Friday.”

The ambiance of the restaurant is delightful and likable.

Menu: American, Texan, Pizzas, Pasta and Mexican the restaurant provides a wide range of food. It is captivating for non-vegetarians as there are many options for all non-vegetarian people out there. But if you are a vegetarian you may get bit dishearten with the menu. But common, let’s not lose the hope here.

Veg Chimichanga

What We Had: We ordered Veg Chimichanga and Veg Tacos. The presentation of food made it look so delectable, but sadly it didn’t live up to our expectations. In dessert we landed on the ‘Classic Chocolate Malt Cake’ but again this too failed to amaze us much.

Classic Chocolate Malt Cake

Service: We found that though the staff was always available but some of them were not much knowledgeable about the dishes they offer. Overall, the service of the restaurant was just okay.

Recommendations: Head this restaurant for the variety of food, alcohol and great ambiance.

Lady Baga, Connaught Place: Food Review

Lady Baga

Address: P-3/90, Connaught Circus, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk

Cuisines: Goan, Seafood

Opening Hours: 12 Noon to 12:30 AM

Cost: ₹1,600 for two people (approx.)

Cash and cards accepted.

Contact: 011 41500170

Ambiance: Delhi’s first all-Goan restaurant on the block. This place is so beautiful that one could visit here just for the sake of that. The place is loaded with dream catchers, hammocks, sand and bright multicolored walls, fairy lights; all reassuringly familiar things to take you back to Goa memories. The walls are painted with beach images and quirky quotes, definitely, a place where you feel like clicking a lot of pictures, the ambiance of this place is everything it adds up to the beauty of this place.


Menu: Limited menu scores high on authentic Goan cuisine. The food menu was great for non-vegetarians but disheartening for vegetarians at the same time because there was basically nothing to order apart from this potato dish called The Goan feast, Magic Mushrooms, and Platter De Friar. The drinks menu is vast.

What we had: We had Platter de friar with amazeballs gherkin and Jalapeno chips accompanied with Baba Oriley in drinks. In deserts, we had Cocoa cabana. And believe us we had oodles of it.

Service: The staff is humble, the service is great.

Recommendation: Come here for a chilled out evening and a romantic dinner/date. All in all loved this place to the core!

Cafe Hawkers, Connaught Place: Food Review

 

Peace at work….that’s all we need.

Café Hawkers

Address: L-22, Radial Road, Near Odeon Cinema, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk

Cuisines: Chinese, Continental, North Indian

Opening Hours: 11 AM to 12 Midnight

Cost: ₹1,200 for two people (approx.)

Cash and cards accepted.

Contact: 011 33107678

Ambiance: A beautifully decorated cafe located near Odeon Cinemas with an attentive staff made our evening the one to remember for long. Cafe hawkers is a year old cafe serving drinks on their MRP. They’ve got two seating spaces from front side and backside. The place has 2-floor seating. Few weird size tables to make you lean forward throughout so you can talk to the person sitting in front of you. Music isn’t very loud, unlike other places where you can only see the lips moving! This place isn’t much expensive as compared to other players in CP.

Menu: The quantity or the food portion of the dish they provide is outstanding. Drinks are served here on MRP so that’s a complete win. A decent place for brunching out when you’re roaming in CP.

What we had: Kink in the air was calling for some comfort food, so we ordered the bowl of goodness i.e. spicy cheese and herb potato wedges worth INR 285. This dish looked the yummiest but to little disappointment; wedges were fine however the cheese got very dry and sticky. They should work more on adding a little spice to the food. Then we ordered ‘Grill Zucchini, Mushroom, Caramelized Onion and Smoke Cheese Grilled Focaccia Sandwich’ worth INR 235 which didn’t live up to our expectations.

In drinks, we ordered ‘hot chocolate’ worth INR 175 and ‘Passion Fruit Cooler Mocktail’ worth INR175. The mocktail happened to be the only saving grace for us. It was very refreshing.

Service: Staff was welcoming and provided quick services.

Recommendation: Overall, there are a lot of lounges and pubs at Connaught Place but if you are looking for a pocket-friendly yet a hip place, this is what you should try.

Rajasthali, Connaught Place : Food Review

Rajasthali

Address: C-26, Middle Circle, Near PVR Plaza, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk, Gate No. -3

Cuisines: Rajasthani

Opening Hours: 12 Noon to 3 PM, 7 PM to 11 PM

Cost: Rs. 750 for two.

Cash only.

Contact: +91 9650075395

Ambiance: Trust Delhi’s Connaught Place to nurture food cultures that can range as vastly as the sky and differ as impressively as the stars. Having had a hawk’s eye experience of all the establishments, Rajasthali is a place that stays authentic to regional food and serves you a variety of its culturally rich delicacies, at a price that seems unheard of. Its interiors are humble and welcoming in spite of the limited space and a simpler ambiance.

Menu: Rajasthali is a ‘Thali’ restaurant and as the pun suggests, Rajasthani food is served on super large plates. Rajasthali provides a kaleidoscopic view of the culture of Rajasthan through the authentic spread it offers. Here they only serve thali, per thali to per person, unlimited food like a buffet. Sharing is not allowed.

What we had: Coming straight to the food, Rajasthali is high on quality. The salad, 4 variants of chutney, 4 variants of vegetables, 1 dal, kadhi, 2 sweets, khichdi with ghee, regular rice, papad, 3 variants of bread and of course the Chaach, it all sums up to a great deal of deliciousness. The Dal Baati served in the beginning, was absolutely amazing and I have not really enjoyed this Rajasthani special cuisine elsewhere.

The Rajasthani thali we ordered contained more than 8 different dishes along with some lip-smacking preparations of roti. Keeping in mind the cravings of the sweet lovers, the outlet has also added some dainty sweet dishes in their thali. All in all this place is a must visit for the true vegetarians. The authentic regional food of the restaurant made our day.

Service: Food is served by a group of staff members that always have a broad smile on their faces. They help you with the hand wash before and after the meal. The service is informed and quick.

Recommendation: The food is high on ghee and higher on ‘LOVE’. A must visit. Family place.

Binge Restaurant, Noida

Name: Binge Restaurant

Address: C-25, Ground Floor, Stellar IT Park, Sector 62, Noida.

Nearest Metro Station: Noida Sec 15.

Cuisines: North Indian, Chinese, Continental.

Opening Hours: 11 AM to 11 PM.

Cost: Rs. 1,100 for two.

Cash and Cards accepted.

Contact: +91 9871952133, 0120 4548000

Ambiance: Reminding of those bygone restaurants where the things were kept minimal, ambiance so chaste and sophisticated. The perfect lights, grand chairs, and sofas this restaurant awake memories of those good old days when the restaurants were not so fancy, they were just simple and solemn.

Situated in Stellar IT Park, this restaurant is perfect for official meetings or family dinners.

The scrumptious Thai curry

Menu: Soups, salads, continental, Indian, desserts this restaurant provides a wide range of food. Be it vegetarian or non-vegetarian this restaurant is a treat for food lovers as there are so many varieties to choose from. Looking at so many options, we were left confused on what to order or not. The best thing about their menu? It is descriptive and self-explaining.

What we had: We ordered Pan Grilled Cottage Cheese with Peri Peri sauce, Yellow Thai curry with Steamed rice, and we must say that the food was scrumptious. Thai curry was one of the best we ever had. The perfect blend of coconut and vegetables, Hmmm… even the thought of it waters my mouth. Albeit, Cottage cheese with Peri Peri sauce needs some improvement. We would have loved it if it would have saucier. But overall the food was delectable.

The secret ingredient is always cheese.

Service: Well mannered, well behaved, well informed, the staff of the restaurant is very courteous and polite. They know the art of welcoming guests.

Recommendations: Want to have a lunch or dinner with long conversations? Or you want to spend some ‘real’ time with your selfie lover friends? Then go to this place, because the lights of this place are perfect to have a chit chat and dinner, but not for selfies (and we loved this fact). Highly recommended for great food, having said that it is a bit pricey, but if the food is good we can manage holes in our pocket sometimes ;-).

Ambiance: A gem of a place. The Tourist is a rare pearl in the ocean of restaurants located in Janpath. It has an amazing vibe as you enter this place, Live kitchen and amazingly decorated bar. Interiors of “The Tourist” have a class and gives delightful experience. It is one of the biggest property in the vicinity. It has been spread across two floors and a terrace. It has a fantastic view from its terrace.

Perfect place for those chilled out winter evenings. You could choose your destination and the Tourist radio would tell you about its specialty. Just loved everything from, the interiors to their management, to their furniture to their cutlery. Upon getting a seat on the second floor, we started admiring the ambiance before filling up our tummies.

Rooftop
The bookish corner

Menu: Upon looking at the menu we discovered that the mocktails they offer have a very different range of ingredients compared to the ones we find in typical ones. The food here is well prepared and stunningly presented. “The Tourist” will give you best food experience from starters to its lavish desserts from around the globe.

Bar at the top.

What we had: For food, we ordered- Pinne Alfredo (Pasta). Everything was very nicely presented and tasted very good. It was perfectly seasoned which made it very pleasing to eat!  It has a menu which serves delicacies from around the world. Try their Red Wine Sangria, it is a classic and super special as it comes across successfully. In mocktails, we relished Mimosa in Sparkles.

Pine Alfredo Pasta
Mimosa!

Service: The staff is humble, the service is great, they know the dishes and they know the industry. It is a well-informed staff with a professional approach of everything.

Recommendation: Overall, we believe Tourist Janpath although newly opened would be a tough competition for its rivals in CP. This restaurant truly stands out, not just by the hospitality of the staff or the awesomeness of the ambiance, but because of what makes restaurants running for a long time: the food. Highly Recommended.

Five Fast Food Joints in Delhi University

Are you a hungry student in this cashless society?

Well, we have something for the rumbling of your pitiable stomach.

With yet another semester rolling in, it is befitting to write about a salvaging passion for university students everywhere, a lingering question, that is never answered for good – what to eat? Actually, the question holds good for anyone.

At Delhi University’s North Campus, student hangouts come in all shapes and sizes. Let’s take a look at some of the easiest on pocket eateries located in and around North Campus.

Here are 5 delightful food joints in Delhi’s North Campus, the paradises priced ever so slightly on the higher side.

1. Maggi Maggi Maggi

Our first stop is a little roadside kiosk, Tom Uncle’s Maggi Point near Daulat Ram College. This place is what comes to a student’s mind when one talks about maggi. Maggi with all sorts of different varieties, which are around 20, is served here. This place is the legacy of Delhi University with undying taste and remarkable food quality even after so many years.  This place has been popular for ages and is really cheap. Must visit if you are a really diehard lover of Maggi. A trip to north campus is always incomplete without eating from this Maggi point.

2. Flavor of the East

Our third stop is a small shack just opposite Patel Chest Institute. If you’re craving some crisp momos, then Mangal Lama’s ‘Momos’ is the place to be. With sweet and spicy tomato chutneys, Lama sells three varieties of momos — veg, non-veg, and paneer. Easily missed, this neatly tucked away eatery is just outside Patel Chest Institute. It’s run by a young boy. Though not so much a kiosk, it is essential with the mouth-watering variety of momos with spicy sauce and mayo that doesn’t tear a hole in your pocket.

Our fourth stop is the bhelpuri joint owned by Sunil Sethi (52) sees a heavy rush from students of Miranda House, Shri Ram College of Commerce, St Stephen’s and Hansraj College. The two-decade-old joint is frequented by other people too owing to its strategic location near Vishwavidyala metro station. The stall opens at noon and closes at 7.30 in the evening.

4. The Dying Indian Biscuit

Our last stop is a Nan Khatai vendor, who sells Nan Khatai or Indian Shortbread cookies near Faculty of Arts. He has been selling cookies near Faculty of Arts ever since he was a teenager. He sells around 7-8 Kgs of cookies each day. What’s best is that it comes cheap and this suits DU students just too well. Popularly frequented by university students, the price range is too low. These soft crumbly nankhatais throw many back to a nostalgic trip down the memory lane.

5. Chhole te Kulche

Our second stop is a little kiosk just off of Central Institute of Education, near Chhatra Marg. Though unnamed, this stall has stood its ground for nearly 20 years. The owner opens the eatery as early as 9:30 am, and then serves sumptuous chhole kulche up till evening. A plate of Kulcha comes with two coriander-sprinkled; butter greased fluffy Kulchas served with spicy Chhole. The Kulchas when eaten with the homemade pickle taste absolutely delicious. On many cool summer mornings, one finds regular customers sitting on the rickety benches at this anonymous stall, exchanging headlines from the paper while eating hot and spicy chhole kulche, served all day.
