The quirky Mumbai-style Iranian cafe comes to Delhi with SodaBottleOpenerWala. Built with affection and an aesthetic that would please both Freddie Mercury and Monty Python, this cafe with its old-world charm is a nostalgia trip. The food is quintessential Irani Cafe with Bun Maska, Parsi Bheeda Par Eeda (Rs 165) - an egg preparation with lady fingers - and the pricier Kolmi Fry (fried prawns). The signature Parsi dish, Patra Ni Machi is a must-try. The dishes are well-priced keeping in view the modest pricing of the original Irani cafes.
Quaint place promoting mainly old Bombay food with the culture and cuisine of the differently named Parsees.This is a rich and denuding community so its a good idea to preserve their cuisine. The decor is very interesting and the space though small uses itself well for a limited number of tables With prompt service Try their eggs and chicken dishes.Quite different.
This one serves authentic parsi food. Design and ambiance like any other parsi restaurants with old age pictures and funny quotes. Food is served in old style utensils. We had berry pulav and chicken biriyani. It was very tasty. We had some mocktails which were too good. Service is fast. Overall recommended.
Went for lunch with my niece. Greeted by friendly waiter who gave us menu and a book stating he can understand us but cant hear us. So we pointed at our choices, i had the chicken dhansak my niece had salli parsi chicken with fried potato matchsticks with paratha. The food was delicious and came promptly. Cold sparkling water for me and a raspberry soda that was made with fresh raspberries for my niece. The menu is not huge but very varied. All in all a very nice lunch place.
Recently visited this much hyped restaurant at khan market,it was not maintained upto its reputation,also the food was not extra ordinary ,was really disappointed by famous Parsi dish DHANSAAK,was expecting more authentic,need to improve the decor & maintenance of the place.Rajiv Arora,former chairman RTDC.
It has originality and character written all over the place from the moment you see the welcome sign to all the way in and wherever you set your eyes. It has Parsi humour too! The penchant for the old and British stands out. We had mutton Berry pulav with succulent pieces and a nice subtle taste with a hint of sweetness offered by the raisins. Also ordered sali chicken, deep fried slivers of potato chips sprinkled on top of a chicken curry done in a tomato base. We washed all this down with a pulpy raspberry soda and the most exotic Parsi Sikanji which is essentially a lemonade with prunes, fresh mint leaves and jaggery as a sweetner. It is a drinkthat I would highly recommend to all for its uniqueness. The other rather touching highlight of the place is that they employ some really cheerful and sweet deaf and dumb waiters and waitresses who come carrying a little illustrated playbook with illustrated instructions for the clients to show them whenever they need or want something. They just draw the attention of the waiter and show them the page with the illustration like getting the menu or the bill or whatever! It has a very very Parsi atmosphere and is fairly reasonably priced. The only thing I regretted was the ‘pav’ which is a simple humble bread which the poorest of the poor can afford because of its simplicity and they charged us ₹50 which was a total rip off! In fact they should give one or two of them complimentary with each curried item. Do go and enjoy the place!

Iranians are wonderful and interesting people. They are quirky yet traditional just like their food. And thank the lord they have bought Gurgaon to life with â€˜Soda bottle openerwalaâ€™. The cuisine is fun, spicy, old-fashioned and very very yummy. The dÃ©cor is like a time capsule transporting you to Mumbaiâ€™s parsi era. The glass jars containing home baked cookies adorn the counter as if a backdrop for a parsi uncle in vest and black cap just waiting to pop out. Cyber hub in Gurgaon has added one more gem to their crown with this cafÃ©. Its popularity has caught on fast amongst the youth. But you can also take along your favourite aunt or uncle who wants to relive the old world charm.
Soda bottle openerwala is pretty reasonable for two. Costing you somewhere under two thousand itâ€™s a perfect place to drop in for a quick bite. Starters like vada pav, kanda bhajii, bun maska are filling yet light on your tummy. They are just right to squeeze in a middle of a shopping spree. Just deposit those bags on the corner of the booth and order raspberry soda or cold coffee to quench the thirst. If you are slightly bit more hungry then dishes like berry pulao, dhansak, patra ni macchi, prawn patio are superb. They will leave you wanting for more and telling yourself to try Sali mutton next time. The egg lovers will not go disappointed here. Irani wrestlerâ€™s omelette are made out of â€“wait for it- SIX eggs! Eggs kejriwal is another unique starter to try.
For your sweet tooth lagan nu custard which is a parsi wedding custard is a must try. Toblerone mousse, brownie and apple pie with custard fits impeccably with the menu. The desserts are flavoured with cardamom and vanilla. Your soda bottle experience need not end here. A wide variety of nan khatai and biscuits will make a wonderful addition to your cookie jar. While leaving you are offered pan flavoured toffee to refresh your mouth. The cafÃ© is original in itself and adds a unique twist to cyber hub stopover.
