The pub is located on second floor just off the main road, at a walk-able distance from Rajouri garden metro station. It’s unusually crowded even at odd hours.

My orders was partially off the menu too as chef Aman wanted me to try his new creations so here they are. The first one being estylish sev poori which was sev poori with froth of green chutney and yogurt, fresh and crunchy nothing much to ponder or even mess with; cut to chase I’d say.
Kukkad Kamal da is chicken tikka topped with quattro formaggi, i.e. four cheese chicken tikka which is quiet an iteration for the basic chicken tikka.

A nitrogen virgin mojito is everything but the basic virgin mojito. Its white crystals placed in a glass for you and for a moment, you are forced to think are you supposed to drink or eat the little white crystals? It’s great on the taste and visual appeal, but the sheer act of picking your spoon every-time makes it grody when you just wanna sip into something easy.

The Have break, have kitkat is a funnel cake picked from the North American streets, stuffed with Kitkat chocolate and dusted with sugar and dry fruits is something that’s calming and simple to end a meal with, although some fresh fruits and maple syrup would make it more pristine.
