Are You There Yet? Hauz Khas Village

“Where do you hang out these days?”
“mmm Haus Khaz Village”, and you?  “Haua Khaz Village ofcourse”, and you? “HKVand you?”.. and this goes on!
Who doesn’t want to hang out in HKV which is surrounded by strong green belt in midst of a broken tomb and such a cool flowing lake?  Some brainy businessmen and a bunch of artsy clan opened their galleries, cafes and boutiques. And the story started. Welcome all! This is your kind of place. You will find all that as you take a lazy walk around the narrow gullies of HKV and stop by at different places to catch a glimpse of this and that. You must check into these multicusine bistros set in the backdrop of the awesomeness of this urban rural setting. Thease places which are highly recommended.


Gujrati mirror work on the wall, sooty staircase as you squeeze yourself to fit into the narrow stairway that opens to "Lah". A newest Southeast Asian food joint run by the youngest entrepreneur Anisha Maker. She gives a warm welcome and talks to the guests personally which is a rarity in Dilli restaurants. The inviting green decor and the unique paintings, homely treatment will make you keep coming back for sure. This place has 20 covers and does not look very commercial but yet it has distinct features of any super hit restaurant. The food menu comprises of mainly Indonesian, Shrilankan, Malay and Thai Food. Not to miss out the noodle bowl with vegetables, meat and sauces of your choice. Malay curry with chicken and Indonesian dishes are big hit for main course. End of it, you will love every bit of Lah. Ideal for a lazy lunch with couple of friends over some slow gossip. Must come.

Hidden above one of Hauz Khas Village's long narrow winding lanes. You have to climb up an Everest to get there. But once you get there it’s a bliss. Say it the ambience, view, food or anything! Even waiting at the corridor is also fun. People go there for many reasons. Food is not the sole factor though its great as it sells fast and this place is always chok-a-blok. Some come for its spectacular view, some come for beef, some come for its tastiest Methi dal, Some come for the appam. And you get all there. It serves fusion south Indian new age food. These days its really difficult to get seat as its so popular. Make sure you have a table booking. It’s a great place for socializing. So bring in your friends and gorge into the yummy foods and enjoy the cool breeze and incredible view of the Lake. You'd just love this hottest eatery. Believe you!

If you are looking for a gig, good drinks and some crazy snacks, it’s your place. New hang out zone with an edge. It has a very different look and you can call it "alternative" by seeing its mismatched table chairs, sofas and the whole look of it. Cool saffron walls and hundreds of things hanging from it. Quick service for drinks but food might take some time. TLR is not famous for its food but never miss to order "Spicy Porn Cuffs". Lot of new singers in town come here to jam in. Fridays are awesome and there's always a gig happening. But Saturday and Sunday evenings  are usually for couples. Loads of foreigners, cool crowd from "Uber side" and artsy people have made it a regular hang out place after work.
