As close as you can get to a mom-and-pop operation, there are charming touches like a floor that has been painted blue, with blue ‘waves’ on the glass doors. It really does call to mind a beach-side shack and the restaurant serves the food of the west coast, from Goa to Karnataka and Kerala, as well as Andhra and Tamil Nadu. So there is a glorious heap of Podi Idlis, Mangalore Lobster Kudla, Fish Koliwada and Diwani Handi. Two chefs hail from Kerala and Karnataka, so one assumes that those are the strongest sections.
Very good restaurant where you'll find delicious fares from SW India (Kerala, Kionkan coast) and all types of fish and meat along the way ;-) Not cheap however. Highly recommended! Not well located on the map!!
Visited this restaurant in the past week. Good food, prompt service, friendly staff. Value for money.
Yesterday I was in Vasant kunj for some work with my friends,after completed work we planned go for lunch and thought lets go to level 3 Ambiance mall. many food joints were there, so we need to find some special which serves good varieties,then finally we find a place called peninsular Kitchen. peninsular is a piece of land that is bordered by water on three sides. Peninsular Kitchen was looked like ship,entry was superb outside there is waves of water which shows beautiful and inside interior was extremely good and you can imagine we were inside of a ship. Peninsular Kitchen has the specialty in south Indian and costal cuisine .Menu there is seafood items and attractive south Indian dishes.

Food was very delicious and tasty too,if any one interested for south Indian and costal cuisine must try these items ,you can see imagine you were in sea and try the sea food it real awesome. Staff members are very polite and well behaved and service was good. I recommend if you love sea food and south Indian dishes with different taste then Peninsular Kitchen is the place for you.
The food was excellent - a varied menu with a lot of things to try. We had a delicious mango salad and the potato batons were incredible. Main courses very tasty, not too hot. The service was a little bit inaccurate - but they acted quickly to correct errors. This is not a cheap place to eat, but in a mall filled with fast food, this is an island of real cooking. The only thing wrong with the atmosphere was a table nearby with some very loud customers, and a child seated next to us who whined and sang loudly all through the meal. Not much the restaurant can do about that.
Peninsular Kitchen is located on the third level in Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, adjacent to the Pizza Express outlet, here and the place radiates an aura of its own. Being one of the pioneers of South Indian cuisine AND Coastal cuisine in a city like Delhi which is the hub of North Indian delicacies, Peninsular coming across as a breath of fresh air. PK, as a brand has risen above only run-of-the-mill and known-to-all South Indian fare like Idlis, Vadas, Uttapams et al to expand their horizon and make available to its patrons, authentic coastal cuisine and dishes popular in South India. Since PK focuses on presenting the specialties of states located on the Peninsula, hence the name Peninsular Kitchen. It was my first visit to this outlet and I must admit that even though the outlet is modest with its seating, the designing of the interior scores nicely with hues of orange and blue and wall motifs of a sunrise and explorer's map. With anchors as table mats and tables in the shape of boats, one of the tables filled with sand, sea shells and mariner's equipment covered by glass, and paintings of coastal trinkets on table mats, Peninsular Kitchen emanates the look and feel of being somewhere near the Peninsula. The Kitchen too, was an open one, with glass walls, so that one could witness the dishes being prepared and plated for us to enjoy. We begun the meal with one of PK's signature mocktails - Peninsular Sunset. The flavor, as well as the presentation, was nice - with a punch of strawberry and a cutesy topping of a pineapple slice. Next up was Deccan Emerald - another mocktail - the flavor of tamarind lent it a tangy taste - though sweetened with a bit of Sprite. Lastly, we relished some Coconut Mojitos which were (pleasantly) loaded with coconut slices too. Other than these, two of the alcoholic drinks on offer were Spice It Red and Cosmopolitan. Moving to the starters, apart from the usual Podi Idlis, we also had Travancore Chicken Fry (not boneless pieces), which was flavorful but a bit high on my spice quotient, and PK's special Butter Pepper Garlic Mushrooms as the vegan choice and Butter Pepper Garlic Prawns. Both were relished. The presentation of all the dishes at PK is worthy of applause, and also starters were accompanied by a choice of South Indian relishes, one of which was Coconut Chutney and Fried Poppadoms. The Main Course was elaborate with Goan Fish Curry, Chicken Chettinad, Vegetable Stew, Diwani Handi, and Vendakal Pulusu on offer. While Goan Fish Curry could have been a tiny bit smoother in texture, and Chicken Chettinad was just right, Peninsular Kitchen scored with their vegetarian preparations - on the portion size and the thick consistencies of gravies. The Diwani Handi and Vegetable Stew are a must-have out of all the dishes, while Vendakal Pulusu was essentially fried Okra pieces, again just right. Accompanying the Main Course were quintessential Malabar Parantha, Appam and Red Rice from Kerala, with another option of the humble Steam Rice. Topped the meal with the authentic Goan Bebinca with Vanilla ice-cream and a mint leaf on top. They source the same from Goa, twice every week, I was told. Also, on offer was decadent Khubani ka Meetha, topped with nuts and accompanied by Rabri and some classic Payasam Kheer. Rounded off the visit with refreshing, classic Filter Coffee. Being a niche setup, Peninsular Kitchen knows their preparation very well. The stewards also know their job well, being attentive and informed, but not intrusive towards their patrons. All in all, a fantastic first visit. I'm looking forward to a second one soon.
Dining at luxurious shopping malls in Delhi NCR doesn’t come cheap. It generally breaks your wallet and leaves you with regret. If one is willing to spend, there are a plethora of dining options on offer and no matter what cuisine you feel like having, be assured it will be available to you. There are few good budget-friendly dining places located in shopping malls of Delhi NCR and if you happen to be at Ambience mall in Vasant Kunj then without wasting another thought book a table at ‘Peninsular Kitchen’ located on level 3. The restaurant is known for its charming coastal décor and a wonderful coastal menu to support it. As the place is quite budget-friendly in comparison to other dining establishments in the mall, it is popular with the diners.
The menu of Peninsular Kitchen matches well with the coastal theme of the restaurant. It is evident through their name which path the restaurant has chosen for itself. Its menu is an extensive one and gives lavish attention to the seafood delicacies in its menu. South Indian, Andhra, Hyderabadi and Goan cuisine are tackled here with finesse and expertise. The variety is endless and deserves to be enjoyed with a chilled beer or one of their heady signature cocktails. Try coconut & green chilli sangria to go with, Kerala stir fried prawns, ghongura chicken fry, savoury rice dumplings, mutton wada, batata mallige, fried fish koliwada, angaar murgh, Mangalorean squids fry, tenderloin fry, chettinad paneer tikka and coorgy liver curry. With the help of ghee parottas and kodi pulao mop up curries like, chaandi korma, Kerala crab curry, avial, dalcha, lasooni gosht, chicken Xacuti and mutton vindaloo.
Finish with a pineapple halwa, aravana payasam, ada prathaman, bibinca and khubaani ka meetha as the ideal sweet round-off. Blue swollen waves and a boat acting as the table top is the first impression of Peninsular Kitchen as you peek in. Their interiors are charming and reflects the coastal cuisine perfectly. The restaurant is designed in a beach house manner with dull orange sun-kissed walls and a floor that resembles waves pulling in the beach. A booth in shape of a fishing boat is an attractive addition to the décor. Tones of blue and wall art made out of anchors and boat models re-emphasis the theme at every corner. Peninsular Kitchen is ideal if you want a pocket-friendly coastal feast with your family and friends.
