The ambiance was based on punjabi dhaba theme with truck structure on one side. Punjabi aura was all over the place. The chef himself went to amritsar to bring the rich and aromatic flavours from royal kitchen of punjab to delhi. The food was very tasteful and we felt royal in terms of its ambiance and it's superior decorated service level.
There was so much to eat and to please our taste buds. Our favourite was sarso ka saag, makki ki roti , amritsari kulcha ,amritsari daal and their barf ka gola spiked with some tequila. We ended the day on a sweet note by having the best firni , gulab jamun , gur ka halwa and the delicious gajar ka halwa.
All we can say is don't eat anythjng for the whole day and save your appetite if you're going to Dilli 32 . the festival is going on here till 4th March so do not miss it.
Eagerly waiting for their next festival.
