Nizam’s Kathi Kababs. Connaught Place

Nizam's Kathi Kababs

Get together @ Nizam’s

It’s been almost 5 yrs since I passed out of college. Since then all of us batch mates got busy in their own lives and we hardly met. Last week we decided to meet at Connaught Place, after almost a gap of 3 yrs.

There was a time when we couldn’t think above Mc D’s but by God’s grace, this time we could afford better options. So we decided to try out Kababs @ Nizam’s

We ordered Mutton Seekh kabab, Chicken Egg roll and Paneer rolls. The quanity was pretty decent; however the taste wasn’t so good. The Rolls were a bit too oily and Seekh Kabab wasn’t that great either.

The restaurant has a concept of self service, which I haven’t come across anywhere else in Delhi (except for food court in malls), and didn’t like it either.  The ambiance was just ok. Since Connaught Place is undergoing renovation these days, dust and heat added to our woes.

In a nutshell I would rate my experience as just average. Next time when I go to Connaught Place, I would like to try out another place rather than visit Nizam’s again.


Castle 9 & Knight, Connaught Place, Delhi

Restaurant Review - Castle Knight Delhi

Its farewell time these days. Many of my friends who were pursuing MBA here in Delhi have graduated and moving to new cities. It had been a long time since i had met Sid, so we decided to meet up before he too left. We met at Castle Knight – a pub cum lounge. Since its very near to CP Metro station it was quite easy to locate.

The restaurant has a narrow entrance and limited seating place. The interiors & accoustics are done well, and despite the place being small, noise levels were low.

The menu wasn’t short of variety, fitting for a world food lounge, however most of the items were on the expensive side. So we settled for mild drinks and desi starters (I dont drink so had lemon soda :P). The place has a TV where we watched IPL. Also there were two singers performing live, which added to the ambiance.

In all it was a nice & quiet experience. However be ready to burn a hole in your pocket.
