Experience the luxury of fine dining

The recently-opened RG's restaurant overlooking the historic Qutub Minar in South Delhi believes in giving its customers not only the best in food but also ambience, music and hospitality. MADHUR TANKHA has an exhilarating time... .


EATING OUT can really be a pleasurable activity if one is treated royally. Well, RG's, the concept restaurant juxtaposing the towering Qutub Minar in South Delhi, has not only stylish décor and spick and span looks but also boasts of a cigar lounge. Not just cigar connoisseurs but also those who are uninitiated can languorously sit down and take the pleasure of some of the finest cigars in the world. Among the lowest priced cigars is for Rs. 45.

A brainchild of restaurateur Rajesh Gullah, this concept restaurant has exclusive reservation for celebrities on the first floor. In the evenings, corporate honchos hold conferences in the party lounge. A DJ plays mellifluous music and the illuminated Qutub Minar in the night provides a spectacular sight. The sprawling lawns not only give a glimpse of the Moghul architectural marvel but also also ideal for holding banquets and weddings, buffets and sit-down-dinners.

The food caters to myriad palettes. One can try dishes from a wide assortment of multi cuisines - Thai, Italian, Continental, Chinese and of course Indian. But the ambience would make you feel like trying out something new and not the usual stuff you eat at home.

Dices of chicken tossed with curd, mustard seeds and Kari patta; dishes from Pakistan's North West Frontier Province like Barbecued Tandoori which not only the Pathans but Delhiites too would love tucking into; fish and prawns - cooked in traditional Thai style - are simply succulent. The fish is tossed in Szechwan sauce. Priced at Rs. 160, the prawns are outstanding. The taste lingers.

The restaurant menu has an excellent mocktail - Lime p.m. - made of brown sugar, crushed ice, dash of peppermint and cola. Another interesting drink K3G - the acronym derived from the Bollywood flick, "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham" - is made of mango panna, lime juice, sugar syrup and Blue Curacao.

On Saturdays, there are buffet evenings, with 14 types of add-ons like Rissoto, Momos and Pastas.

There are specialities like Earls Fisherman's Platter, priced at Rs. 225, where grilled fish is mixed with shrimp popcorns in a lemon butter sauce. It is served with sautéed vegetables and fries. In RG's, there is also a platter with a combination of kebabs like Reshmi Kebabs and Kakori Kebabs. In addition, one is given salad, dal, raita, naan or parantha. Non-vegetarian tastari is available at Rs. 210 while the vegetarian tastari is priced at Rs. 180.

In the dessert menu, one can try Fabulous Fruity Rosita, priced at Rs. 110. It has sweet cinnamon tortillas filled with ice cream, drizzled with butterscotch, strawberry and chocolate sauce and decorated with seasonal fruit, whipped cream and toasted almonds.

Recently RG's held a Halloween bash, which had its origins in the Catholic church.
