VEDA
2nd floor, DLF Promenade,
Vasant Kunj.
Meal for two- Rs 1500
Veda of C.P now has its third and the plushest counterpart sited at the 2nd floor of DLF Promenade. For this very restaurant, Rohit Bal has taken an innovative seize on the intricacies of interiors to create an intriguing mystical aura. When you make a way inside, the red brick walls, gleaming beam of the chandeliers appear as a star studded sky of the night, welcomes you. A close check on the walls displays Rajasthani glass work in the silhouette of a Peacock gives an Indian touch to the décor. The décor is intense on gild and grandeur with dazzling gold lamps shining from the roof on the wooden tables. High-backed leather chairs are a constant expect the two golden ones placed just in front and right of the entrance. Then, there is an embellished dome adorned with ‘thekri ka kaam’ placed in the heart of the restaurant.

Overcoming the rich and royal feel of the place, we advanced ourselves to the center table of the front row. A cheerful attendant presented the menu which is almost the same as of C.P and Emporio one, except the new entrees like Galouti Kebab, vegetarian Garlic Kebab and Methi Palak Papad ki Sabzi. We started our culinary sojourn with Palak Ki Chaat (deep-fried spinach leaves served with yoghurt and mint-coriander chutney) was out of the ordinary kind. In drinks, we settled for Bailey’s and Veda special lemonade, which were as good as they sound For salad, we tried Caesar (in veg and non-veg variant) where we were served with paneer and chicken chunks tossed with red and green peppers, pineapple juliennes and black pepper. Satisfied, we graduated to mains and decided for Kararee Bhindi, Dal Veda, Paneer Kundan Kalian, all-time favourite Butter Chicken and Lamb Veda Special together with Garlic Naan and Warqi Parantha. First came crisp Lady Fingers clubbed with red onions, tomato and chaat masala. We liked it and progressed to Dal-a rich and creamy preparation festered over night was quickly registered by our tongue testers. The Paneer recipe of home-made cheese balls in tomato and curd gravy can easily be punched with the ‘perfect’ tag. Chicken with an insinuation of black pepper and Lamb dish were good enough to be taken in contemplation.

After that, we were back to menu to select our desserts for the night and the winner was ‘Litchi ki Tehri’, the reason being the name sounded so interesting to us. In reality, it was canned litchi cooked with condensed milk and rice flour which collectively tasted heavenly. The impressive decor being the highlight of the place, their Indian food formulas with a modern twist, will not disappoint you.

New Menu At TGIF

This American casual dinning chain has launched the new food menu where you will discover their old signature recipes like Fried Calamari, Chicken Chimichanga, Caribbean Seafood with Chicken Rice and Spicy Jack Glazed Ribs making a comeback. Despite the fact that, they have more non-vegetarian options than the vegetarian, the entire gamut of recipes can be customize according to your preferences. In drinks, you can check out Strawberry Lemonade – a blend of strawberries and lemons and November Breeze – sweetened mix of lime with apple and cranberry juice, is refreshing and something which one will not get at the local lemonade stand. For those sweet desires, Classic Chocolate Malt cake with three layers of moist fudge topped with a creamy chocolate icing and a vanilla scoop, is a right fit. This place is trying to revive its lost charm (of Vasant Vihar and Connaught Place) but will take a while to take off.
