I have tried this restaurant several times but all the times either I ordered the food on phone or went for a ‘take away’. I always liked their food specially the Dal Tadka, so this fateful Sunday when maid took an off and I was faced with the proposition of cooking my food and cleaning the utensils too I decided to dine in here.
I never have been impressed by its ambience but never imagined it would be such a mess. The tables and chairs were unclean with food specs lying on them and on the floor. The table napkins were some old fashioned plastic ones which I guess they have been using for a decade now. What made it worse was that they had traces of all sorts of dishes made at the restaurant adding to the ‘yuck’ feel.
After seeing all this, I wondered what the condition would be inside the kitchen. The thought was enough to fill my stomach and make me leave.
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.
