The Darzi Bar and Kitchen is one of those upscale theme based café/restaurants located in the outer circle of Connaught Place. By the name itself, it could give you a pretty good idea of the theme it is based on. Everything right from the entrance to the table, handle locks and wall décor everything has a tailor’s shop resemblance. You have a live DJ with a huge open bar and high chairs. Looking at the interior, your expectation towards food also goes up, and The Darzi has stood up to it. Coming to the menu we had here, the list goes long, as we could not miss out on anything.
Malai Soya Chaap
Soya marinated in the paste of cashew nuts, cream, and spices well grilled turns out to be a mild dish with rich flavours of cashew nuts and cream.
Kuliya ki Chat
A mixture of street chat masala with some spicy ingredients stuffed in fresh vegetable cups. This was something new out here, light and easy starters.
Jazzed up Burger
The burger came with a mutton patty, caramelized onions, egg, and mushrooms with different sauces and served with black bun bread. The burger tasted yummy and was served with onion rings, fries, and fresh salad.
ISBT Makhni Maggi
Maggi lovers should not miss out on this. One of the favourite all-time Maggi prepared in makhani gravy and butter. Adding so generous flavours to Maggi. A combination of good taste and preparation.
Lamb shanks are cooked in their own stock with spices very simmered and served with Indian bread. Flavours are mixed with gravy and mutton, well cooked to perfection.
Amritsar ki Thali
An authentic Amritsari thali with kulcha, chana, pickles, chutney, onion, and not to forget cubes of butter. Thali was simple yet had too many flavours. This could serve almost two people.
If you’re a vada pav lover and missing out on the taste in Delhi, this could be the place where you could find one. The vada was prepared well and had the same taste as the one back you find in the state where it has its origins. Served with fries, green chutney and spicy tangy chutney which completes the whole dish.
Light, Dark Chicken Curry with Butter Roti.
Grilled Rum Chicken
Chicken legs grilled with spicy rum sauce served with fries.
Paneer Butter Masala
One of the best Paneer Butter Masala ever had, The dish had an authentic rich flavour and was been served stuffed Kulcha.
A piece of lamb with an authentic gravy that had rich flavours and texture to it. It stood like a masterpiece. The gravy and the lamb pieces were well cooked, and it had that distinct flavour to it.
Aromatic and rich with flavours and spices. Served with raita, the biryani was cooked well and had medium spiced flavours.
This whole lot of meal had to end with dessert, and never the less Shahi tukda was on our list. A muffin with saffron milk, choco chips, mint and ice cream. The dessert was so rich in flavours you could end up having two of them. Don’t expect the dish to be very sweet. It was just perfect to be called dessert.

A great place with a very different style of ambience, tasty and mouth-watering food, and the mark service. Everyone serves here with a smile.
