Lunch at Kasbah - Review

Hello,friends today i will share my experience at Kasbah restaurant which is located in New Delhi in Greater Kailash (N pocket). It is  one of the most happening place of Delhi.and located in southeast area of Delhi,preferred for High-Quality products. There are many restaurants but we chose Kasbah. It is divided in three sub-units for different cuisine. Ground floor is for private parties, first floor is for Italian cuisine, all bar one is one the second floor, third floor was for Zaffran but it got closed now. We decided to go in all bar one.

I loved the interior of this place. It was spacious and comfortable seating area. I must say it was pretty classy.

The menu was appetizing. They do have well elaborated menu. Both veg and non-veg were available but we chose vegetarian.we ordered North Indian food which include masala papad and fresh lime soda in the starters. In the main course we ordered makhmali paneer and dal tadka ,raita, naan and missi roti

Best in food
Makhmali panner, masala papad and missi roti were up to the mark.

we were warmly welcomed by the servers.They were courteous and attentive also. I was really impressed by them.

Overall i would love to give
