Not too pink but happy in HKV

first_imgThree dimly-lit floors and a nicely-done up terrace. The Pink Room impresses you with the decor when you walk in. Wooden chests that double up as tables, comfortable sofas and chairs, quirky posters and lyrics of songs and framed photographs of musicians — this newly-opened place in Hauz Khas Village is your typical after-work den. With music in the background, a bar that serves regular alcohol (nothing too fancy mind you, except the Grey Goose) and some pretty chilled out spaces are things that work in favour of this restaurant. Going by the name, one would expect that everything would be overtly pink and therefore either very garish or very girly. Thankfully, the owners have ensured that one disaster is avoided. The colour pink is present here, though very subtly.

The beverage menu is average and there is a lot of scope of improvement, especially in the cocktail section which is average. Also, the staff need training in the serving of alcohol with the right amount of accompaniments like ice and soda. often, too much water or molten ice spoilt the drink when I went there.

Worth a mention is the Lamb Tajine with cous cous prepared with some very fresh and soft lamb. Skip the risotto even if you are fond of it. Another item I liked was the Roasted chicken pesto pizza with extra cheese. Thin crust and really nice.  Overall, go to The Pink Room for the ambience, if not so much for the food.DETAILAt: 29 A, Hauz Khas VillageTimings: Noon to midnightPhone: 30146122 Meal for Two: Rs 2,100last_img
