United Coffee House CP

While I was growing up, I heard stories about United Coffee House and, how once a month my parents, newly married and settling down in Delhi, went to watch a movie in Plaza, Odeon, Rivoli or Regal in Connaught Place and, post movie walk to either United Coffee House for Cona Coffee and Portuguese Fish or to Nirula’s for Fish Orly. I have a recall of going twice with my parents in late 70s and [...]

The Pavilion at Maurya

I can’t say I’ve childhood memories of ITC Maurya and its The Pavilion restaurant but, I can say my reminiscences go back 30 years or so. The Pavilion has changed many times over and it has expanded in terms of size from what it used to be way back in 1980s. For about three years or so I didn’t go to The Pavilion at all, it was kind of several bad experiences which led to [...]

AnnaMaya at Andaz Delhi

Hyatt is known, Andaz is not, especially not in India with all set of hotel goers and, team Andaz knows that.

I went there this Wednesday and here is what I came back with – some excitement, some disappointment, a mixed bag. The Location: AnnaMaya is located inside [...]

Till late in the afternoon, I had no inkling that I would be sitting at The Groghead in the evening and sipping my poison. That’s the fun of chalking out a plan at the last moment. As I walked into this few-months-old bistro, which claims to have been designed like an Australian pub, the staff encouraged me to sit on their terrace. I agreed in no time. The Ambience The terrace had an earthy feel [...]

Restaurant review

It was an unplanned Saturday night dinner with friends and every time such whimsical spur-of-the-moment plans land us up in Satya Niketan. This time, we decided to go to Crazy Kitchen – a rooftop cafe bang opposite to Venkateshwara College. The 100-step climb might be a bit putting off, but the food and ambience will surely compensate for the ordeal. The mosaic floor strikes a contrast with the bamboo furniture and the white, high-backed Victorian [...]

Grilled and seasoned meat is served with peanut sauce.

As I swung open the door of Market Cafe, I was greeted by trance music, minimal décor, and a slightly shy staff. As me and my wife settled down in one of the corners overlooking a small garden, we started to make sense of the setting. The decor looked experimental in patches. Glass lanterns hanging from wooden ceilings were in contrast with blue mosaic work on walls. I wished this 40-seater restaurant had a French [...]

Pomodoro, the Italian restaurant at Hilton Janakpuri/ New Delhi is a bag full of surprises. The first surprise is that one can’t make out whether you are walking through the restaurant or outside it. It hasn’t been placed well within the hotel premises. If you are eating there be prepared for that odd couple using it as a passage from adjacent the Zune to the loo. The second surprise is that even during “peak eating [...]
