  • Even though interest in regional and community-based Indian cuisines is at an all time high today with a number of home cooks and amateurs jumping into the F&B biz, to find a non-hotel restaurant serving credible and reasonably authentic “Indian” food is still difficult.


    One reason, of course, is that quality at these mom-and-pop restaurants can be highly unpredictable. And often these ventures are not sustainable businesswise and contribute to the here today-gone tomorrow unpredictability of the urban restaurantscape in the country.


    That is why it is so heartening when a reasonably authentic but also seemingly sustainable Indian restaurant opens its doors to us. Trolleys in Khan Market is a smart move. In a market crammed with cafes, with bits of Italian, Med, and Asian dining, here is a place where you can finally go to for a hearty “Indian” meal.


    The menu is mostly pan-Indian (though there are other cuisines too, including liquor-filled dim sum)--- mostly north Indian—and certainly not home style. But the flavours are honest enough and there are some interesting concepts built in to save you from a sense of déjà vu.


    The name of the restaurant comes from its concept of offering little amuse bouche portions of chaat from a, well, trolley. The latter comes rolling to your table as you are seated and dispenses a daily special, which could be anything from dahi-papdi to jhal mudi, reminding you of the flavours of the street in a far more sanitized fashion. The first serving is free, for the subsequent ones, you need to pay nominal amounts per plate.
