Once you are suitably dazzled by the vintage photographs, antique tchotchkes and intricate wood detailing, you can feast your eyes on a delirious medley of food inspired by communities living on the Grand Trunk Road (G.T. Road). Since G.T. Road, an ancient marquee route in Asia stretches nearly 2,500 km and crisscrosses four nations, including Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, there are dishes representing culinary cultures of diverse people and races. Food and beverages are served in glistening bell metal utensils while servers are dressed in Raj-era livery. If you opt for a full-course lunch or dinner buffet, a mind-boggling variety of starters will be despatched to your table post-haste. Non-vegetarian starters to whet your appetite include 'Chicken Burrah Kebab' and 'Mahi Taj' while 'Aananas Khatta Meetha' and 'Achari Khumbh' feature in the vegetarian starter section. The main course menu is equally sprawling with the 'Baluchi Gosht Biriyani' standing out with its falling-off-the-bone meat morsels. At regular intervals, freshly prepared 'Chaats' come to you, much like palate cleansers. More than a dozen varieties of desserts are up for grabs here and you can sample everything from 'Amritsar’s Gur kulfi' to 'Lauki Ki Barfi From Etawah'.
Visited GT road many times with family.great ambience with yummy food.veg and non veg snacks have many variety my kids loved the food.
My Overall rating is based on my experience with food, service, ambience & cleanliness and value for money over my 3-4 visits with family (husband and adult son). All 3 of us are gastronomes and my husband and I are pretty decent cooks, so our expectations from eating out are high, both in terms of food and service. We'd rather cook and eat home than waster our time and money on inferior quality or unauthentic food. 1. FOOD - 4/5 a) Grill - Especially the starters on the live grill. Good variety for both vegetarians (cottage cheese, potatoes, corn, pineapple) and non-vegetarians (lamb - seekh and kababs, chicken - kababs, tangri), small size prawns, fish. Once they had a keema pav served in a traditional tiffin which was wonderfully prepared. They didn't have it on other occasions so it doesn't seem like staple (unfortunately). The grill is so delectable that one has to stop in time to save some space for the buffet items. b) Buffet - Again a wonderful spread of salads, Indian cuisine and sweets. The butter chicken needs to be cooked more authentically since it's too sweet (all 3 times I visited. Rogan Josh was done well. Fish curry is always good and so are the other dishes. The Chinese options are also good to have for the ones who need more varity than North indian. And I guess Indians are used to Chinese with Indian food, since the former is is also Indian-ized. The biryanis could be made with a longer grain (personal preference) and could be less sticky. And the sweets corner could do with some improvements to the kheer (again rice quality is very poor and under cooked). Plus some variety would be good. The rotis/Indian breads are done well. Wheat ones are easier on the teeth since the naans get chewy. On my last visit, the breads were not served hot and it seemed like they wanted to dump us with extras so it could be completed in one round. That was not acceptable. c) Misc - The place used to provide a yum welcome drink (panna) which they have discontinued. We have ordered the lichi soda on every visit, however the quantity vs price is disappointing, also considering the overall pricing of the restaurant. 2. SERVICE: 3/5 a) Reservations (0/5) - When I called this place twice for reservations and both time the person who responds to the calls gets very rude and irritable when one enquirers about the buffet prices and inclusions (grill/only buffet). He abruptly closes the call in mid sentence and refuses to escalate to the restaurant manager. Afterwards if one calls back, he does not respond to the call. Apparently the caller ID is active and he knows that the call will be escalated. Regardless of the good reviews of the food I see here, the FIRST IMPRESSION OF SERVICE IS HORRID, RUDE and DISGUSTING. It does not take much time for such pathetic service places to ultimately drown in their own arrogance. It's DISGUSTING and REPREHENSIBLE for them to have such CRANKY people responding to potential customers. b) Dining (3.5/5): The Dining service has always been good, however I have seen a deterioration on my last visit (a month back). Generally, the staff is eager to serve and ensures that one is well attended throughout the meal. On my last visit, they seemed a little less inclined to be attentive and we had to call them on several occasions to top up the grill or serve rotis/breads. It seemed as if they have been asked to slow down the servings. It seems like a cue that they have reached a sizeable customer base and and are now ready to tone down the service to focus on the profits. 3. AMBIENCE & CLEANLINESS: 3.5/5 The overall ambience is very classy traditional GT Road and Punjabi, accompanied by both the murals and uplifting yet unobtrusive music. The restrooms (or washrooms as some may prefer) are also clean. However, the seats need to be dusted and I do that myself every time so as to not spoil my clothes or leather accessories. And every time, there is much spring cleaning desired in places/seats (given that we arrive for the first lunch shift before anyones rear has the opportunity to clean them). 4. VALUE FOR MONEY: 4/5 The food quality and buffet options are so far reasonably good value for money, with some suggestions for improvement cited above. The last experience leaves much room for improvement. And the chef does not seem to be interested in taking direct feedback from the guests, though he is visible on all visits. Maybe he should take some time to get direct and immediate customer feedback. All of these gaps are tell tale signs for slipping customer focus. So in summary, make sure you have the appetite and tummy room for some good north Indian fare. Arrive early to get the early bird discount an to be able to have relaxed sumptuous meal with time for conversations and waiting for grill seconds and rotis.
Out for a dinner with family and G.T. Road served it right, starters were good, main courses have various options to choose, desserts could have been better.
What a great meal! Firstly, though, a word of warning - the extensive range of grilled meats (or vegetarian options, if preferred) provided early on are only a starter! We didn't realise this until it was too late, and we were too full to make more than a token effort at the delicious main courses. Firstly we were given a range of small but delicious appetisers, then the central part of the table was removed and replaced with a charcoal grill. This was soon populated with various lamb, chicken and prawn skewers, all of which were first class. Additionally we had some garlic chilli fish and sweet potatoes, plus some excellent fried chick peas. The poor waiter was crestfallen to discover that we were going to have to miss out on the main courses! We did have a spoonful each of one or two, to show willing, and wished we had the capacity for.more. You won't regret a visit here, if our experience is anything to go by.
I knew about this place when planning my trip. 3 nights in Delhi was topped off by this place. The first night I was scouting it’s location and took a walk through for another night. Looked good. The second day I went for lunch but they weren’t open yet. The third night I waited outside for the host to fit in one solo traveler. Enjoyed my persistence to eat here. Skewers of delicious items at my table. Non stop refill skewers which I had to stop because I wanted to try buffet items. Good variety of flavors. Best meal I had in India. Thanks for the journey G.T.
Your search for a decent Indian restaurant may take you all over Delhi NCR, with you sampling various curries and kebabs to find that one place that is perfect for your taste buds. If you happen to move towards the central Delhi, you will find yourself surrounded by a cluster to good-looking fine dining places tucked between snazzy showrooms. It’s here that your curry hunt will come to an end. Connaught Place has turned into quite a gourmet-magnet with all the spectacular fine dining collection it has nestled into its historic circle. One key restaurant is ‘The G.T. Road’, a lovely fine dining place known for serving delectable Indian food. Its location at the outer circle is easy to access with plenty of parking space. The G.T. Road will do wonderfully for families and large groups.
The menu of G.T. Road is thorough Indian, stretching up to include rich Afghani and Mughlai cuisine as well. The influence of these cuisines brings in loads of kebabs, bound to make your mouth water through their spices and smooth melt-in-your-mouth texture. The restaurant organizes splendid ladies’ luncheons and buffets that draws in quite a crowd. Menu is straight-forward. It opens with a selection of smoothies and iced teas but we recommend you to stick with a glass of lassi or a desi mocktail. Start munching with, dahi bhalle, lasooni murgh tikka, dahi ke shole, gosht ki chapli, palak patta chaat, kasundi machhi and paneer tikka. Next tackle your main course with the help of hari mirch parantha or kachey gosht ki biryani. Polish off curries like, rajma masala, chicken in schezwan sauce, kadhai paneer, aloo gosht and kadhi pakora.
Final sweet course is pretty substantial. The G.T. Road spoils you with a plethora of mouth-watering choices. There is, lauki ki barfi, imarti, paan kulfi, rossomalai, afgani burf, jalebi aur rabri, sheer khurma, dil khush, gulab jamun and phirni. There is a lot more. Starters are served on a live barbeque station on each table. If you are a lover for Indian food, there is no place better that The G.T. Road. Generosity that reflects in the menu extends into the décor. The restaurant is sprawled across two levels and is designed in a modern yet old fashioned way. Lighting is kept dim which lends an atmosphere of intimacy with the earthy décor. Use of vintage memorabilia adds to the elegant charm. A medium-priced restaurant.
