All your wits are instantaneously awakened as you walk into this brand new ‘dikra’ in Noida brimming with all the Irani café memorabilia to signs propagation ‘No Outside food allowed’, ‘No Flatulence’ etc; Kudos AD & Sabina Singh! Recommendations go all out for the hearty bohri kheema pav, delicious and thankfully not so greasy and the soft pav just helps mop it off the plate with ease. Another star item is the ‘salli chicken’, rich with spice and served with a sprinkling of crunchy salli (finely-cut crisp fried potato) on top. The Indian-Irani hybrid dish, berry pulav – is a yummy mouthful of its fluffy rice tossed with chicken, onions (original one uses Zeresch berries though). Stay for the tareli macchi, it is baked out here and the Goan choriz pav. Vegetarians should try the mushroom on khari, creamy and crunchy and the ‘khattu meethu pumpkin’, leaving just the merest hint of sweetness and sour, on the tongue. The ‘egg Kejriwal’ could do with a slight more spice. ‘Lagan nu custard’ with its impeccably well-adjusted sugariness and a caress of nutmeg makes for the flawless sweet ending! All in all, this Parsi café is great fun with a distinction on affordability; young chef Anahita Dhondy is sure doing a great job.
