Quite simply, the best brand extension of any hotel restaurant into the standalone market. From a hotel in Lutyens’ Delhi to a mall in Saket and to Cyber Hub in Gurgaon is a long trudge indeed. Yet, both new outlets do the parent brand proud. It has a fairly short, simple menu, with baingan ka bharta, butter chicken, tandoori bhune aloo, Amritsari aloo wadi and Amritsari chole being the stars. While regular spirits are served, they have tried to replicate country liquor under the heading of tharra. Lively, unpretentious, great food, highly recommended for Indian cuisine.
The rustic beauty of Punjabi heritage lies in those small quaint dhabas that seems to carry the earthy flavour of Punjab. The colourful culture of Punjab reflects in these dhabas which are the tiny roadside gastronomy wonders visible all over the nation. Such is their popularity that many standalone restaurants have adapted the dhabas as their theme. Dhabas carry this vibrant colourful image that seems to attract the eye of every fascinated patrons, especially the foreigners who find the style immensely charming. Claridges too has judged the dhaba trend to be worth dabbling in by introducing to us their fun and striking chain of restaurants called â€˜Dhaba By Claridgesâ€™. The perky chain of restaurants does its parent brand proud, by its unique approach to this age old idea. From dÃ©cor to the menu, everything is paid a lot of attention to.
Dhaba By Claridges enjoys a very snazzy image even after being based on a rural concept. Its location alone earns it an instant fan base, being located at DLF Place mall, Saket. The restaurant is decorated in a very fresh appealing way, by handpicking the rural tit-bits to make the place look stylish and interesting. Every inch of the restaurant carries the stamp of rustic India. A well spread out space is cleverly designed to form vast nooks at every turn, fitted with assorted sitting area to be chosen in whim. Colourful tables tops, walls covered with tyres and multi-colour kites enchants you immediately. But what steals their thunder is a live truck that stands on one corner majestically. Its fitted with couple of tables so you can experience the dining in a very authentic way. Dhaba By Claridges is fun, imaginative, quirky and lively.
The dhaba style theme extends to the menu too which is given a refreshing and upbeat avatar. As expected, it excels into North-Indian cuisine but in an expensive way so keep that in mind. Begin by choosing some yummy appetizers like, tandoori bhune aloo, galouti kebab, amritsari fish, dhaba paneer tikka, tawa mushroom hara pyaza, tandoori mutton chaap, dhaba prawn, Makai pyaz ki seekh, murgh malai tikka and palak paneer ki sheekh. Pair the curries with decadent tawa mutton pulao or amritsari kulcha. Mop up, dhaba chilli paneer, brain masala, matar paneer, butter chicken and rarha gosht. Spoil your sweet tooth with baileyâ€™s kulfi, rabri, badam halwa or gulab jamun.
