Namak Mandi: My review Yesterday, by chance, I went to have lunch at Namak Mandi at Vasant Kunj. I had heard a lot about chef Imtiaz Querishi's restaurant and the history of the cuisine they serve. I had also been meaning to visit it for long but somehow something always came up when I had planned earlier. It was a spur of the moment decision and am glad I took it. We were two non veg and one veg group of eaters. So we started with burrah kebab and dahi ke kebab. What a piece of succulent meat were those kebabs. Perfectly charred and done to perfection. The dahi kebab was the best I have tasted till date. As mains, we ordered three types of roti, khameer roti, made of apricot glaze and loaded with cheese, warq paratha and parantha with pudina and mirch. All of them were delicious. That khameer roti!!! My mouth is still salivating thinking about the roti. With roti, we ordered gosht nihari and maa ki dal. I don't like kaali dal much but tgat dal was bursting with flavour and i can eat bowl full of it. The meat in the nihari was falling off the bones, it was so soft and succulent and juicy. And the nihari broth!!! I have never tasted that kind of deliciousness in a nihari broth. Light, bursting with flavours and a soul satisfying taste!!!!! After such a meal, we had no place left for dessert. But what I MUST mention was that we asked for refill of the sweet papaya chutney thrice and they happily obliged. The staffs were very friendly and service was quick. I loved the cosy warmth of the restaurant and its no fuss interior. People should indeed visit for food, not ambience or anything because food really is the hero of that restaurant. Lastly, my note would be incomplete if I do not mention Sabba Ali, the man who served us with such good care and a smiling face. Overall, Namak Mandi gave me soul satisfying food. Loved every bit of the morsels we tasted. Am going back for more!!!
I celebrated my birthday at the namak mandi, on 12th september. The food was as usual amazing and outstanding. i go regularly and ajay the manager never lets me down. Always an amazing experience.
Worth a visit once the food is OK and it is North Indian the service is average. Soda shikanji was quite not up to the Marc and the garage door he was fine ,Namkeen gosht was too salty
Situated in DLF Promenade, this place is known for it's tasteful North Indian cuisine. Presentation of food is outstanding and food is slightly over priced. Go there for your family outing. Weekends are crowded
We were there for dinner. My review. The ambience is not bad at all. The space is small, so they keep rushing you along The Lahori Fish Fry was outstanding. The Rogan Josh was very good. The Dum Nacknavi was average. It was not Awadhi Biryani, even though they claim it was. The Jaan-eh-Mehfil - the huge naan -was very well done. The Narangi Kulfi was interesting The biryani prevented them from getting a 5 star rating!
The best way to experience gastronomy is to go old school. Sometimes when our palate is too much overwhelmed by the modern gimmicks and fancy new day ingredients, give it a shot of old fashioned cooking by inviting it back home. Discover the origin of delectable Indian food by booking a table at Delhi’s new favorite dining destination ‘Namak Mandi’. The restaurants pulls you back in time to the era of Awadhi hospitality and the romantic musical atmosphere that was synonymous of the time. Namak Mandi is one of the few restaurants that celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Indian cuisine through a lip-smacking menu and a charming chic background. Give your heels a chance to cool down at DLF Promenade Mall in Vasant Kunj by heading for Namak Mandi located on the second floor.
Drink in the gorgeous dreamy atmosphere created by Namak Mandi before opening the menu. An evening of romantic qawwali music accentuates your dining experience tenfold, highlighting the Awadhi theme they have going on. Traditional Qureshi flavours are the soul of their menu, which pleases one’s palate immensely. The combination of authentic Awadhi cuisine with luscious North Indian fare packs quite a flavourful punch by the chef, who tries his very best to woo his diners with an excellently curated menu. No alcohol is served at Namak Mandi. Switch it with Masala Chaas or thandai. Let Awadh charm you with starters like, raan ahde changezi, charsi tikka, dahi kandhari kebab, mahi afghani, galawati kebab and burrah kebab. If you find appetizers a revelation, wait until you try their curries. Kofta dilkhush, murgh bay-misal, gosht nahari, qasr-e-pukhtaan and murgh khush purdah would be sensational picks.
Even their accompaniments are paid deep attention to. To polish off the curries take advantage of khurmee naan, Karachi bohri, warqi paratha, murgh Rampur, jaan e mehfil and dum nacknavi. Move onto the rich sweet course next without which your meal would be incomplete. Tickle your sweet tooth with, kesar malai phirnee, narangi kulfi, khubani ka meetha and jaan e azam. Even though Namak Mandi is a fairly new entrant on Vasant Kunj’s dining scene, it has quickly won the hearts of the gourmets visiting. The menu may be rich or old fashioned but there is nothing traditional about their décor. Exposed brick walls, sans tablecloth wooden dining tables and modern brass lamps sums up Namak Mandi. The casual laid-back contrast is memorable and so is their affordability.
