Shekaza, Kalkaji, New Delhi

There definitely arrives a time when you move over the glitzy restaurants serving fast food and return to the classy old school establishments which still serve the dishes of your childhood. Such places continue to improvise their dishes but maintain their uniqueness. And Shekaza is one such dine out restaurant which will impress you with their fine food and services.

We have a thing for Britishesque or European interiors with minimalism and Shekaza is the epitome of such specifications. The restaurant portrays soothing paintings with peaceful environs.

It has been running successfully for the past thirty years and with their impeccable service, we seriously wish they continue to achieve new milestones.

Non veg kebab platter: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Afghani chicken tikka – perfectly grilled and melt in the mouth

Fish tikka – extremely mellow and slightly tangy fish pieces with a subtle crusty exterior.

Gilaafi kebabs – firm and flavourful with hints of sweetness because of the presence of chopped bell peppers.

Chicken tikka – Spicy and tender chicken pieces which are difficult to resist

Drums of Heaven: For a change, this was hot but not spicy to the point of burning your palate. The magic of chopped onion and garlic along with a slight drizzle of vinegar and honey on a crusty leg piece of fried chicken can leave you in splits. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Dahi ke kebab: The sweet yet sour hung curd deep fried in a crunchy exterior of a secret ingredient (we are aware but will not reveal) is bound to give you a major food gasm. The presence of chopped green chillies and bell peppers does give a different dimension to these lovelies. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Lemon chicken: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a subtle yet tangy gravy of lemon and fresh vegetables – broccoli, carrots, baby corn, zuchhini, garlic, tomatoes, sweet corn and spring onions – maelstrom of flavours which can not be forgotten easily. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Shekaza special Hakka Noodles: The finest noodles tossed with boneless chicken chunks, eggs, carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, broccoli and spinach and served to you without the addition of vinegar – could we stop ourselves? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken Rara: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a tomato based thick gravy of fine chicken keema – why not? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Thok – The House of Kakori, Lajpat Nagar New Delhi

Seldom do we get to indulge in delectable Mughlai cuisine in the comfort of our homes. And when the class apart dishes are delivered right at your doorstep, the happiness is fourfold. So when Nom Nom Desi managed to prepare a lovely assortment of appetizers in a short span of two hours and achieve on time delivery, we were pleasantly surprised to say the least:

Chicken Tikka: No compromises on this staple starter of Delhi NCR. The boneless chicken pieces were tangy, spicy, juicy to the core and adorned with freshly chopped coriander. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken Malai Tikka: Tender boneless chicken pieces drenched in a creamy sauce and grilled to perfection – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken steamed dimsums: These do look like regular road side momos but have a bite and you will gauge the difference. The exterior is neither too thick to the point of being undercooked nor too thin to the point of disintegration. The minced chicken mixture is flavourful and the whole ensemble is topped with chaat masala. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Mutton Kakori kebab roll: This actually got spoiled on the way and hence no pictures. Talking about flavours – excessive use of cinnamon in the kebab marred the taste of this item.

Overall rating: 4.5/5

Would we try this again? Yes, of course!
