A relic from days bygone, it has not quite retained its original look but is very far from being modern. Geriatric waiters and a menu that is straight out of the 1960s make it a trip down memory lane or a rather fusty, stuffy place, depending on your age and point of view. Stick to the 'Chicken Pakoras': they are the finest in the city by far, with not a drop of excess oil. 'Murgh Musallam' is béchamel sauce with chicken.
Comparatively to other metropolitan cities, Delhi retains an old-fashioned timeless charm that endears the city to us. Its backdrop of crumbling majestic forts, dust coated lanes of old Delhi and miles and miles of greenery that runs between the residential pockets, only elevates its ancient vibe. Delhi is many things to many people. Though it may have come a long way on scales of modernity, it still thrives on its deep roots and traditional classic values. And what can be more classic than those quaint old restaurants belonging to the bygone era, still tucked away in numerous lanes of this glorious city. One of the survivors of the trendy modern gastronomic influx is the famous â€˜The Embassyâ€™, nestled in the heart of Delhi i.e. Connaught Place. It is said to be one of the oldest restaurants in Delhi and for many home away from home.
The Embassy thrives on its classic appeal and in the times when every restaurant has chosen to have a facelift, The Embassy silently stood by and stuck to what it does best â€“ nostalgia. It is one of those places where old timers still sit at the same table week after week for decades. They are known by their names and favourites by the staff of this old-fashioned establishment. Take a trip down the memory lane by visiting The Embassy and experience the relic of days gone by. DÃ©cor of the restaurant seems like to be stuck in 1960â€™s with heavy wooden finish and marble chequered floors. Ceiling is a network of wooden beams and high ceilinged windows brings the outdoors in. Wooden formal tables dot the room to encourage proper dining. Ambience is elegant, old-fashioned and nostalgic.
The restaurant may be old-fashioned but there is nothing vintage about their prices. Some might find the place to be on the expensive side so keep that in mind. Menu explores the North-Indian, Continental and European cuisine. Many dishes are classics and are still prepared in the authentic way. The vast scope of the menu begins with a lavish spread of appetizers such as, prawn cocktail, mutton gilafi, charcoal roasted mushroom, classic fish & chips, jalapenos popper, calamari rings with chips, spiced chicken wings and hari mirch ka paneer tikka. Main course is a heady selection of curries, pasta, steaks, sizzlers and cutlets. They also keep an impressive bar menu.
