The monochromatic décor – walls, upholstery, table linen are all off-white – recalls a bygone age in this absolutely stunning heritage hotel that deserves to be the toast of the town, yet remains resolutely hidden because of its location in a charming but largely forgotten part of Delhi. There is mulligatawny soup, vichyssoise and consommé that call to mind the days of the British Raj, and a grand mixed grill that is probably one-of-a-kind in the city. It is an inspired choice to take visitors from England and the small Indian menu appeals to all tastes.
New Delhi is saturated in history. It is the city’s hold on bygone era that attracts so many people to it. This beautiful mish-mash of the old and the modern, forms a stunningly attractive picture drawing tourists from all over the globe. There may be a huge gastronomic evolution in terms of updated contemporary ambience; however, there are several restaurants that are focusing not on the future but on the past. These restaurants celebrate the colorful dynamic history of New Delhi and one prime example of it is, ‘The Curzon Room’. This lovely culinary wonder is unknown to many yet it is an integral part of city’s gastronomy. Tucked in an offbeat location at, Maidens Hotel, Shamnath Marg, Civil Lines, New Delhi, the restaurant is part of a charming but overlooked part of the city.
The theme of The Curzon Room, revolves around 19th Century India. Even it’s menu fixates on the food of Northern India and features a vast selection of classic North Indian dishes one hopes to see at any good curry house. Variety is superb. You will find plenty to choose from. The restaurant offers a full-fledged bar menu to help tide you over. Ask for a Patiala peg to accompany the frontier meal perfectly. Otherwise go with Kashmiri kehwa, a soothing flavourful tea from Kashmiri region. With it tuck into, meen pollichathu, chakunder ki chap, lamb galouti kebab, badam ki tikki, murgh malai tikka, paneer achari tikka and tandoori sarson jhinga. Dive into the curries next with spicy fares like, paneer makhan wala, gosht saagwala, roast chicken jhalfrezi, kerala meen curry, guchi matar malai, alubukhara aur badam ke kofte and rahra gosht.
One can even opt for their thali for a quick fulfilling three-course meal. No Indian meal is complete without a set of mind-blowing desi desserts. Go for the old-fashioned classics like, gulab jamun, ras malai or kesar pista kulfi or broach something new with a refreshing paan mousse. Dining at The Curzon Room doesn’t come cheap. Their prices may be a tad heavy but considering the elegant interiors and a high quality menu, they are completely justified. Much of the popularity enjoyed by The Curzon Room, lies with it’s vintage décor. Named after British Era, the restaurant thrives on a monochromatic color scheme defining an old worldly elegance of this charming heritage hotel. It could be a wonderful place to bring a foreign guest.
