The Claridges have recently opened two outlets in Delhi NCR – one in DLF Place, Saket and the other in DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgoan. I visited the Cyber Hub outlet which is located on the first floor, above Nando’s. As you enter the restaurant, you find a vibrant interior which is pleasing to your eyes. A lot of hard work has been put into the interiors, which look like an Indian truck, with the traditional graffiti and colour added all over the place . The sitting is casual but comfortable and the place shouts out loud “We are desi“. The staff is dressed in the Indian attire to match the overall ambiance. The chandelier is made from broken glass and there are tires on the walls.

The food is visually very colorful and custom-made to be a hundred per cent desi. Even the bar menu is named theeka and has a section of cocktails where the classic cocktails have been given a desi twist and are served in adda bottles, the typical desi style.
