Restaurant Review: Hauz Khas Social
Much has been spoken and written about Hauz Khas Social. We’ve even seen it on the big screen, featured very distinctly in the movie Tamashaa.
Located near the Hauz Khas Fort, Social is a unique cafe. Its style of presentation makes the cafe stand out. It is a two-floor cafe and hence spacious, with a separate lounge area for drinks.
While we had been planning on visiting the cafe since as long time, we finally decided to go there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The ambiance at Social is very soothing with perfect lighting: neither too dim, nor too bright- exactly what my friends and I prefer.
We ordered snacks and shakes. The presentation is extremely good and innovative, without any compromise in taste. The keema-pao is one of the specialties; needless to say it is very delicious. The Oreo shake and Kit-Kat shakes were the best we ever had any where!
The quantity of the food is also very good. We ordered very few items (chilly potatoes, keema pao, paneer tikka, and 2 shakes) and that was all enough for 7 people!
Well, if you are planning to celebrate a birthday there, make sure you get the cake cut at the fort nearby or maybe at home and then visit the cafe, because it is not allowed inside the cafe. However, they offer a cake, the size of which is smaller than a pastry.
Coming down to the price, it is very reasonable. The bill was just 3,000 bucks for 7 people. Pretty cool, eh?
