we just finished our bussiness in Indian high commission and were on our way back to Manchester. It was very windy and raining, so we decided to stop and have lunch before we leave, and ended up in Chandni chowk, the name sounded good as my friend was from delhi and knew the food quality over there.We ordered Lamb Curry, chicken curry, channa bhatura, 2 plates of dhai bhalla, papadi chaat, Naan and 2 tandoori roti.first came the pappadi chaat, You could only taste chaat masala on top as there was a lot of it. Two spoons were enough. tasted nothing like a chaatThe food arrived and the first thing i noticed was the channa, with very thin watery gravy and the channa was freshly out of a tin. The bhutra were burnt and very oily.Lamb curry and chicken curry , it was like a joke. Lamb curry had 5 pieces of lamb and the dish was full of horrible tasting gravy.chicken curry had a lot of fat on the chicken and the gravy was tasting of raw onions. in other words terrible taste, Tandoori roti was dry and the Naan was rock hard (need a meat chopper to break it) we just left it.Dhai Bhalla??? It seemed like they had put stones insted of bhalla. They were rock hard and tasted of nothing. We just left most of the food and also comlained about dhai bhalla, but were tottaly ignored, All they were interested was in the money, and not customer satisfaction. No woner it was not busy at all jst about 2 tables. You can find better places to eat with more reasonable prices.I am one of the best chefs around and know about indian food. Chandni chowk is one of the worst i have ever tried. My advice..... dont waste your money///////
DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE.
We had ordered Papdi Chaat & Bhel Puri but both were pathetic. behl Puri was mixed with only Tamarind sauce & hence was very sour & inedible. papdi Chaat was even worse with salt added generously & again the same tamarind sauce giving a worst taste. I could very well make a better chaat at home. They have completely forgotten to add any sweet or chilli sauces to balance the salt & tamarind. I had a stomach upset after eating here.
The service was even more pathetic. They were busy watching TV & we had a hard time grabbing their attention.
chandni chowk is the best i love the food and me and my friends always go there the staff are really nice and very friendly and i hope they always be open and have loads of success always recommended to my friends and family
Jalebis were really delicious but could have been a lit less oily, if u get what i mean.
