I passed by this place a few months ago and ever since, Delhi Highway has always been on my “List of Restaurants to visit”. The ambiance here is beautiful and inviting. I finally visited last week with a few other friends and we all had a wonderful time. Just like the ambiance, the service here was good too.
Coming to the food, we began with a Litchi welcome drink that was nice and refreshing. Next began the flow of starters, Masala Papad was the first dish, the presentation was beautiful but the taste was quite average.
Next was a Tomato Basil Shorba Soup, it was quite spicy and something I would love to have on a cold winter night. Next was the Dahi Papdi Chaat, this was by far the best dish of the day, amazing blend of textures and flavors. Worth trying out.
Pani Puri/ Gol Gappa shots were next, while the presentation and concept looks amazing and eye-catching, it does have its flaws. The Spicy GolGappa Pani settles to the bottom of the glass almost instantly and we had to use the back side of a spoon to stir it. Another flaw is that if your puri has a hole, you are going to make a mess, as it was in my case. It does taste quite nice though.
Next we had the Naram Dil and Broccoli Pesto Kebabs, both were good. I however didn’t like the Tandoori stuffed Mushrooms, the texture was too chewy and jelly like. Lastly, we had a round of Dahi Sheek Kebabs which was quite interesting, tasted sweet and resembled a stuffed Panini.
I went for an Apple Mojito to cool down from all those spicy kebabs. It was very refreshing and much better than a regular Lemon-Mint Mojito. Do try it out.
Pasta served with Garlic naan was the next dish followed by Quesadillas stuffed with Rajma beans, both dishes were very heavy and we were almost done, but the main course and star of the evening was still remaining…
The Thali..by the time it was served, we were too full to look at it. Even though I love thalis, after all the spicy starters, it tasted quite mild and average. I would have loved to have it as a separate meal rather than all together. It was too overwhelming.
Finally time for desserts, my favorite part, and Delhi Highway didn’t disappoint me. We had Delhi special Lassi, served in an earthen glass and Hot Jalebis served with lots of mouth-watering Rabdi. I was so happy I didn’t stuff myself with the Thali. The desserts here are amazing. Save some space for it.
Overall this place is quite nice, it was full even on a weekday evening, the food has its ups and downs but a good dinner service in all.
