I was looking for a place where I can relish street food and at the same time some mouth watering kebabs and noodles. I think I have found the perfect match at Chand Chini, Gurgaon. The concept sells on Chandnichowk to China theme. The theme is represented on their food menu which displays a variety of Street food which we savor. They serve golgappa, Chaat, ice cream, kebabs and for what they are famous for, Mithai (Indian Sweet). If I talk about theme China, they serve a good variety of Chinese food.
Ambience: Easily located in the South Point Mall, Gurgaon first floor. The restaurant looks like a food court but the food is being served on your tables. The décor is colorful and bright. The chairs are in the colors of blue, white, yellow. They have beautiful sceneries on the wall. A calm and composed Buddha statue on one side as the owner is very religious.
We started our culinary journey with a fresh glass of Watermelon juice which was very refreshing and Dry Fruit Shake, very unique, prepared using dry fruits (Almonds, walnuts which is low on fat and makes you energetic. This shake is a great post workout shake. MUST TRY!
~Chicken Dim Sums: We started with Chicken dim sums which were soft and juicy. The accompanied garlic and red chili dip went absolutely well with the dim sums. MUST TRY.
~Chicken Hakka noodles: Indian version of hakka noodles with vegetables, egg and chicken pieces was a version of Indianised home cooked noodles.
~Gauloti kebabs and Chicken Malai tikka: The galotui kebabs were soft and tender, the way it should be. The Malai tikka were well marinated and delicious. They were the best starters to begin north Indian food with.
~Murg Ishtew : Thick creamy gravy with succulent chicken pieces. A great choice for non vegetarains.
~Dal Makhni: If you love ITC style dal Bukhara then this should be a sure order from the menu. The dal was cooked using whole black lentils which was cooked overnight and prepared with tomatoes, garlic on slow coal fires. MUST TRY!
~Assorted breads: We opted for garlic breads and missi Roti’s which were soft and chewable.
As this restaurant is very famous for sweets, one should definitely try some out there. We ended our meal on a sweet heady note with rasmali and gulab jamhn. You an also opt for Gyani’s ice cream, they have an ice cream counter on one corner. They also serve kullad chai and coffee.
