Chor Bizarre New Delhi Reviews
Good food but serves is poor Aug 28, 2009
‘Chor Bizarre’ is a play on chor bazaar, which roughly translates as thief’s market, where diverse and not-always-legal items are bartered for and sold. No item of furniture in Chor Bizarre is the same as any other: each table, chair, wall hanging and decoration is unique, whether antique, one-off, reproduction or bric-a-brac.
The most famous item is a 1927 Fiat car. A buffet is served from the seating area, but the engine is still in full working order. A number of tables are actually horizontal glass display cases containing, amongst other things, coins, swords, artefacts from Kashmir and painful stone flip flops. Tucked in the corner of the wood-panelled room, opposite the library area, is a Wurlitzer juke box, shipped from Germany in 1946. Hanging from a wooden pillar is an intricately carved post box from Jaipur, now used as a place to drop comment cards.
Like the assorted furnishings, the food comes from all over India, representing the best of the country’s many different cuisines. Dishes from Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Benares, Mumbai, Lucknow, Mangalore and Rajasthan are all on offer, but Chor Bizarre is best known for its Kashmiri and Mughlai cuisine.
Chor Bizarre recently won a Times of India award for the best Kashmiri food in Delhi.
We had our diner included in our traveldeal so we got a special thali.Indian Thali are several small bowls with dishes, curries for example with chicken, lamb, potatoes, goat cheese, Indian beans, rice and naan bread.
The food tasted very good, only some curries where to spicy for us. A lot of locals come here for diner, that often means that the food is good!
Although the food was good I founded the restaurant a diappointment. The serves was very bad, lack of interest, slow serves, you were looked away, grumpy waiters, expected lot of tipping for poor serves.
Although the restaurant was rewarded couple of times I didn't founded it living up to the positive compliments of the awards. Oké, the food does but the serves totaly not! So I would advise you to come here and have diner if you lock out ur good expectations
of having a real nice diner. If you come it will be only for tasting good cuisine.
Chor Bizarre’s expensive by Indian standards but reasonable to the Western wallet. Prices do not include tax (20% on alcoholic drinks, 12.5% on food) and tipping.
Chor Bizarre also has branches in Gurgaon, Noida and London, UK.
