INSIDER TIPS

  • Lahori Gate is really small space, and fills up very quickly during weekend lunchtime. Do reserve ahead. The sunny tables besides the entrance are best
  • Portion sizes are great for 2. Prices are slightly upmarket and at par with Pandara Road
  • Desserts are limited to 'Gulab Jamun' and 'Phirni'

Amit Speaks

4.1 /5

Pandara Road is not all there is to Punjabi food in Lutyen’s Delhi. Lahori Gate, a few miles away in Meherchand Market, serves Punjabi dishes from across the border. It is easy to walk past this 12-seater restaurant, whose upper level has been shut after the NDMC clampdown. However, the small space is sunny and cosy with a modern décor and service is always an earshot away. While I could not find Lahore’s famous 'Chholey Murg' on the current menu, I was told that the dishes are prepared from owner 'Gazala Akbar Sharma’s' family recipes. The 'Mutton Burra Kababs' was smack with a deep red, but not overpowering masala, and charred to tender. 'Seekh Kababs' were hefty and the 'Tandoori Soya Chaap' missed out on its smoky singe. I skipped the signature 'Nihari' for 'Kunna Gosht', which had me coming back for seconds. So, called because of the kunna earthenware it is cooked in, Kunna Gosht traces its origins back to Chiniot in Faisalabad. At Lahori Gate, it stands out with the punchy flavor of whole spices and charming pieces of fried potatoes in the gravy. My 'Lahsuni Palak' was lightly spiced and coarsely textured, but the other great find was 'Lahori Dal'. 'Masoor-Dal' cooked to a creamy consistency with the kick of garlic and khada masala. 'Fresh Khamiri Roti' and toasty 'Jeera Rice' rounded up the satisfying meal.
