It is actually an encroachment on the footpath, but that’s a common thing in New Delhi and the citizen don’t bother much about it.

Unlike other places in Delhi, a meal in the open here is thankfully free of stray dogs giving you company. The place is neat and clean and completes the enjoyable street food experience.
Typical Delhi days are hot and stuffy. But with the huge tree cover and sufficient greenery around, one can actually enjoy a meal even in the peak afternoon.

Preferred by many is the different varieties of Parathas which includes the non vegetarian paratha which is very popular. Other interesting item on the menu is Maggie and its variations. Also available are vegetarian and non vegetarian curries and the Chinese Items. Food arrives fast and it is piping hot. Regulars are pretty much confident that they serve the best parathas in Delhi, but we might have some debate on that.
