1. Grub House– What a quality place. From the famous house of GOLA SIZZLERS here comes another one GRUB HOUSE, A bistro-fine dining restaurant and Lounge all under one roof at J Block, Rajouri Garden. Ground floor has a café, first floor is a fine dining option with lot of natural light and interesting interiors and top floor is a lounge to just chill. A brain child of Rajat Kapoor, who has learned the nuances from his dad and actually the Restaurant business has been in their blood and was a pleasure chatting with him and his cousin Mohit Nanda who are so passionately involved in the making of this pleasant outlet where the focus is on food what people like. They know their customers so well by now that whatever innovations they have done on their food with lot of experiments are what they are confident would be liked by them and are always open to suggestions.
Food has to be good when their passion and focus is to offer the best without compromising.
Must try these following dishes- Mini Spring Rolls with crisp cover and soft cheese stuffing served with nice green chutney. Cream Chicken Tikka was creamy soft and delicious.
Glass Noodles salad with sprouts was something new n innovative with a sweet and tangy tasty and looked nice.
Cocktails like Almond mint Martini with crushed almonds.
Coffee Martini with a touch of rum was another good innovation close to cold coffee and was nice.
Mutton boti kabab was deliciously spicy with strong aroma of spices.
Jambo prawns in butter garlic sauce
Butter chicken Pizza would be liked by all Butter chicken lovers as a starter. Teriyaki Chicken coconut Rissotto was good with strong aroma of basil and sweet and tangy chicken chunks tasted good.
Main course has to be butter chicken in the Punjabi dominated area …and this was with a difference, with green gravy but tasted damn good and not the usual sweet red curry.
Dessert again was their creativity of sweet pizza…had it for the first time with Ice cream Hot chocolate and Orio Biscuits.

Spread over 2 floors (3rd and 4th), it is well connected by a lift and Valet parking is available which is a relief in Rajouri. Full marks for the hospitality. Every table was being attended properly, without any haste. There were coal blocks to heat up the place and they were being rotated near every table after regular intervals.
