On a recent Monday night, at about 8 in the evening, I walked off the popular Khader Nawaz Khan Road looking for 1947. By 8.30 I was sitting in the middle of a cavernous restaurant, I did not know existed, heaving with diners. Pastel walls backdrop decor-abilia from the era of princely states and British Raj, as plush sofas share the floor with colourful khatiya. Space works, and as I found out, works very well to fill up with large family dinners.
1947 is a wonderful eating joint which serves delectable Chinese and North Indian food. This casual dining place is located in RVR Towers, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, and Thousand Lights in Chennai. The décor is simple but effective. The placement of chairs and tables is such that you do not feel cramped up. The muted tones and perfect lighting add to the appeal of this place. Nothing is over the top and looks decently stylish. The place has welcoming feel and decor seems to be inspired by the British Raj. You will se plush sofas places along with colorful khatiya. So there is good amalgamation of modernity and old charm. The place is ideal for big family dinners as seating capacity is huge.
Coming to food you can begin your meal with wide menu of refreshing drinks such as Jal Jeera, Mint Shikanji, Gajar Ka Sharbat, Gulabi Jal, Taaza Phalon Ka Ras, and Pineapple Lassi etc. In starters you must try Paneer Malai Tikka, Paneer Peshawari, Anjeer Paneer Tikka, Aloo Nazakat Ke, Desi Videsi, Tandoori Baby Corn, Makal Moti Seekh etc. In main course you can order Dal Makahani, Pasta, Yellow Dal, Biryani, etc. Try the Sooji Halwa and Gulab Jamun which are simply divine. Most of the people come here for Buffet meals rather than ala- carte orders. As a matter of fact buffet spread is pretty lavish and affordable.
It is a fully air conditioned eating joint where people come for having finger licking North Indian food. Food is tasty and is prepared with high quality ingredients. The place is kids friendly so you can easily come here with your children. There is no outdoor seating here and alcohol is not served. The place even serves Jain food. Service staff is prompt and efficient.
The waiters of 1947 are very friendly and cater your demands without any delay. This place is not a self service joint. Book your table at 1947 in advance as place is usually heavily booked and buzzing with activity. You can even book a private dining area if you come here for a wonderful meal in a big group.
