Cafe Southall is a huge Lounge/ Pub style Cafe located at Tolstoy Lane, Janpath, New Delhi. They have a Valet Parking hence parking is never a problem here, much required in Delhi these days. The Place serves wide variety of good looking food.
The Ambience of the place is rustic, as its pretty common for Cafes these days. But as compared to others’ rustic look and feel, this was more premium. The quality of furniture they have used is also very good and the seating is pretty comfortable as well.
The Menu they have is having very nice variety of Drinks, Food and desserts. Also the names of the dishes are also catchy. The Prices they have kept are not that reasonable but are justified. The Service was nice but it has a scope for improvement.
All the Drinks we ordered were nicely made. I have to mention in Cocktails, Pauva and Patola were very good. Among Mocktails, Orange Strawberry slush and Passion fruit cooler were best.
In Food we had, Malai Murg Tikka (4.5/5): Amazingly soft and juicy. Corn and Fennel Tikkis (5/5): Nicely made crisp outside and cheesy inside. Must try. Andhra Style Prawn 65 (4.5/5): Very nice south spices. Crispy and Saucy prawns. Caesar Salad (5/5): Nice fresh and crisp. The quantity was also very good.
Chicken Dimsums (4/5): Nice juicy and steaming hot. Amritsari Fish Tikka (3.7/5): It was more like fish and chips with mint chuttney. Tandoori Platter Non-veg (4.7/5): Everything in the platter was very good and rightly spiced and cooked. Rajma Galouti mini sliders (4.6/5): Nice n soft patty and rightly flavored too. Though we got hard bun for one of the slider but it was replaced by the management. Pesto Fish Tikka (5/5): Very nice. Crisp and smoky on outside and ultra soft on the inside.
In the Mains everything that we had was nicely made but the best thing was Rogan Josh. It was amazing.
In Desserts, we had Blueberry Cheese Cake slice (4/5): Nice and Soft. Topped with strawberry slice. Hot Chocolate Sundae (4.7/5): Very nice and Chocolaty. Topped with chocolate cherry, which was actually pure chocolate chunk. It was very good. Oreo Vanilla Ice Cream (4.5/5): The one for the Oreo lovers.
Verdict – This place is a must visit for hanging out with friends and party. It was a great dining experience.
