If you've stopped over at Dhabas at Highways to grab a bite while traveling, you know how addictive that kind of food is! My journey is definitely incomplete without those desi-butter speared paranthas and that perfectly cooked and perfectly addictive Dal Makhani. Quick service, Onions and Chillies are the freebies. Though the loud sound of the trucks' honking or the cleaniness in the area around could be nerve-wrecking for some. Angrezee Dhaba is the place for you, if you wish to skip the unpleasant bits of eating at actual Dhabas.
Angrezee Dhaba brings the authentic Dhaba fare in the up-market , M Block Market of Greater Kailash - II. Located on the second floor, opposite Lakme Studio, the Angrezee Dhaba is a decently-sized place accommodating upto 40 persons. The interiors are done in red colour, red-cushioned chairs and sofas and dhaba-pictures on the wall. The utensils are all steel to give the real feel of eating at a Dhaba. The place is clean and hygienic.
We started off with sweet Lassi - pretty decent, the kinds you can probably make for yourself at home and a glass of Fanta. The non-vegetarian kebab platter (Rs. 333) and the vegetarian kebab platter (Rs. 199) came next. The non-vegetarian platter had Chicken Tikka, Tandoori Chicken, Seekh Kebab and Malai Tikka. All the meats were good (tender and cooked well), Malai Tikka being the best of all. Seekh Kebab was passable though. From the vegetarian platter, I quite liked the Dahi ke Kebab and Makke de Kebab. The Stuffed Aloo (potato) was stuffed with Paneer Burji and the exteriors were covered with a layer sesame seeds. Paneer Tikka was just regular. Onions and Mint Chutney are served along with the platters. If you need more, ask away! They are pretty generous with the accompaniments - just like at real Dhabas!
For main course, we ordered definitely more than what two people could polish off. Here's what we had - Dal Makhani (Rs. 155), Aloo Parantha, Butter Naan (Rs. 26), Murgh Gharana (Quarter - Rs. 188, Half - Rs. 266, Full - Rs. 399), Subz Biryani (Rs. 166), Khadey Gosht Biryani (Rs. 199) and Pineapple Raita. The Dal Makhani was typical Dhaba-like. I loved it! Have it with the parantha of your choice, pour in the butter, munch on the onions along or the mirchi ka achar (pickle) and you know that they have named the placed very aptly (Angrezee Dhaba). The Murgh Gharana was a specialty, but could have been better I suppose. Should have probably tried the butter chicken too. The Biryanis, both - Subz and Gosht, were great! Ample amounts of vegetables and lamb and nice, fresh flavours.
The desserts specialty is the Lychee ki Tehri (Rs. 66). Very different and nice. Sliced and chopped Litchis mixed with Rabdi and garnished with dry fruits. We were just thinking of ordering Gulab Jamuns when our server advised us to try the specialty. Glad we did!
With the prices, the service and the tastes, Angrezee Dhaba is quite a steal. A must visit if you're a fan of Dhaba-style cooking or if you're wanting to try that stuff. Enjoy the desi-fare with traditional tastes and flavours at a place that gives you the comforts and hygiene of dining in a restaurant. Must visit.
