We stumbled upon this amazing place while looking for options in Connaught Place to throw a party for about 20-25 people earlier this year. One of the main reasons for choosing this place, over the others in the vicinity, was the promise of non-deafening music. Not a fan of loud music that drowns your voice, we wanted a place that allows conversations while enjoying a good background music. We’re glad we chose the place since our overall experience was enjoyable although there were a few glitches here and there. Here’s the review of dining at House of Commons…
Food & Drinks:
We chose 3 vegetarian and 3 non-vegetarian starters:
Main course: While we were already stuffed with the amount of starters served to us (impressive quantity), how could we have missed the main course at our own party! The dishes included were: Jeera Rice, Indian breads, Dal Makhani, Paneer Butter Masala, Butter Chicken, and Mutton Rara Gosht. Dal Makhani and Mutton Rara Gosht had maximum takers. We gave the evening a sweet end with Basil Cheese Cake & Phirni.
There are two extremes to judge this bit about the restaurant. While the service during the beginning of the evening (7 pm) was impeccable, it wasn’t so by the end of it (around 10 pm) when a lot of crowd started coming in. The staff wasn’t equipped to handle so much (rain caused some chaos), it seemed. However, we hope that was only teething trouble since the gastropub had recently opened.
Cost: Rs 25000 approx.
Overall, we had a memorable evening at House of Commons. It is definitely one of the good places in CP to host a party with friends and family.
