Zaffran- Restaurant Review

Tucked in Star Mall, Sector 30, Gurgaon, is this restaurant called Zaffran. Zaffran, is a kind of saffron found in Kashmir, and the restaurant projects itself for Authentic North Indian Cuisine.
To say the truth, couldn’t agree more with them.


We ordered the following dishes and there is a special reason why I am not describing each dish separately, read on and you will know it..
For Starters

Vegetarian
Kalyani Paneer Tikka
Khumb Nawabi
Dahi ke Kebab
Tandoori Broccoli &

Non Vegetarian
Murgh Malai Tikka
Murgh Chilli Milli
Jhumta Kukkad
Raunaq e Seekh

For Main Course

Paneer Lababdar
Dal Makhni
Chicken Boti Masala
Rarra Meat


If I were to sum up the presentation, the taste and the service I would in one word say everything was AWESOME!!!! and this is the reason I didn’t describe each dish. Everything was so perfect that its beyond words, you just need to experience it.

Their claim to serving authentic North Indian Cuisine is 100% validated.

Truly speaking each and every dish served was a masterpiece on its own with the right mix of spices, tender meat and superb presentation in a quite ambience which can also boast of ever smiling and courteous staff.

The one standout dish that needs a special mention is the Jhumta Kukkad,marinated in rum, which had a very distinctive taste of the marination and cooked to perfection.


A real must if you want to savour some authentic North Indian Delicacies at its best. Sweeten your taste buds with a dose of Gulab Jamuns and you will be sorted even more.


The right place to spend a quite evening with your family and friends and relish some extremely good authentic food.

Dilli BC- Keeps your taste buds lingering for long..!!

Very few times, we come across places where the food is so perfect, that one cant help licking the fingers off. One such place is this tiny tiny take away/delivery outlet Dilli BC tucked away in the Malviya Nagar Market, right next to Aurobindo College. Though its primarily a take away and delivery outlet, but if you are a small group of friends who don’t mind standing across a table and indulge in some great food while you converse, then they are perfect in that regards too.

So on a windy afternoon, I with a bunch of friends decided to stop by this place and grab a quick lunch, but lest we knew that it will turn out to be an extravagant indulgence in food and conversations.

Our culinary journey began by tasting one of the best dishes they have to offer, the Bhatti Chicken, followed by Anari Chicken Tikka. Both these dishes are a must try and not to be missed at all. The Bhatti Chicken, coated with a secret black masala and perfectly roasted is a delight. Its so juicy and nice that you can’t stop at just one piece. Chicken Anari Tikka on the other hand was very different, with a sense of tanginess, but extremely tasty. Loved it.

Next we tried Chicken Lehsuni Tikka and Chicken Seekh Kebab, and both of them though regular but were amazing.

Up next we tried the Stuffed Tangri Kebab and Chicken Nawabi, both them very unusual and tasteful. The Stuffed Tangri was a double treat, tandoori chicken leg with minced chicken stuffing, simply outstanding. Chicken Nawabi topped with gooey cheese was another delightful preparation, the flavours of cheese with roasted tikka tasted really nice.

We were all bunch of hardcore non-vegetarians with just one exceptional friend who was a pure vegetarian, but he proved to be the most important person in our group, we realised this once he placed his orders and we tasted the vegetarian dishes. The Vegetarian items were a level above the non-vegetarian ones, each and every thing we tasted was simply mind-blowing.

Paneer Anari Tikka, Kali Mirch Paneer Tikka, Achari Soya Chaap, Dahi Ke Sholey, pick any item and I am sure you will love it. I mean we all loved it so much so that our tasting became a full-fledged meal, where in we again ordered the entire set of vegetarian starters for ourselves and our veg friend still got the least portion 🙂

Coming to main course, Dilli BC again proved a notch above the rest. The Butter Chicken was of superlative quality, much better than the well known so called leaders of Butter Chicken in Delhi and so was the Dal Makhani, a perfect 10/10. Chicken Rara and Rogan BC (Mutton) were another flavoursome dishes to savour. Try these awesome delicacies with their assorted breads and don’t forget to order a mirchi parantha, its not to be missed.

Now let me tell you about one of the highlight dishes from our entire meal, it was the Tandoori Chicken Roll, a roll not just made of tandoori chicken but also rolled in a tandoori roti and served with a rocking smokey dip, this is definitely a must try and I am sure you will become a fan.

After having this hearty lunch at Dilli BC, I am very sure that this is gonna be on my speed dial to order food whenever I am taking a break from cooking or feeling lazy or simply craving their food. Also happened to bump into Apurv Kansal who owns the place, and must say his suggestions, his hospitality and insightful plus light hearted conversations added a lot of value to the overall experience.

What are you waiting for, pick up your phone and dial now, they serve currently from 3 outlets, GK2, Malviya Nagar and Dwarka, go ahead, have a feast!

The Orb @Radisson Blu Plaza, Delhi Airport, truly celestial!

True to its name, the moment you step into Orb, you feel the celestial vibes, it feels like a heavenly body, or may be just another planet, but for sure there is something magical about the place. You feel transformed into another world and it also stands true to its name in other way, that it is a circular shaped bar with a huge centre piece of lighting and circular shaped seating around it. The beautiful ambience is marked by the dim blue and pink lighting and with some live DJ music thrown in, it becomes one of the hottest party destination in Delhi. It really makes for the perfect place to hang around with your friends over drinks and music.

Coming to food and drinks, they are as rocking as the ambience of the bar. The bartenders are extremely friendly and they really turn around things to serve finest and most intriguing drinks. When you visit, you ought to try their signature cocktails, they will just blow you over. Khopdi is one such fascinating drink, the process of making it is itself so interesting that yo cant help but keep looking at it for a long time.

Other amazing drinks were Orange Caprioshka, Chilli Chocolate Bunny, Apple Cinnamon Punch, Pale Lady on the Beach and many more..

Finger food to go along with drinks is pretty good too. We tried the Bruschetta, Orb Special Pizza, Achari Fish Tikka and Prawn Tempura. The Bruschetta was really good and so were the Prawns, but I personally loved the Pizza and Achari Fish Tikka the most. The fish was crispy on the outside, perfectly spiced and tender from the inside. The taste of roasted garlic and basil pesto on the pizza was just amazing, I loved it. Chicken Tenders and Cottage Cheese Tikka was good too.

The desserts were the highlight, I tried the Oreo Cookie Baileys Cheese Bar, which was simply awesome. I normally don’t like cheese cakes but this was really nice. Next I tried the Hazelnut Mousse Fudge, which too was nice, but there is a scope for improvement in this one, as I found it a bit dry.

Overall I spent a great evening at Orb, with my friends and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it would be evident if you see the pictures below 😉
