For a filling spread



Enjoy a meal at Bhaja Govindam.

THE NEWLY DONE up Bhaja Govindam at Asaf Ali Road in Delhi stands out with its chic, brightly lit exterior. For over 20 years, the vegetarian restaurant situated next to the Delite Cinema, has been serving both South Indian and North Indian cuisine. A collaborated venture between Udipi Home from Chennai and the proprietors of the Delite Cinema, the restaurant has undergone a makeover in the last three months. And, it now boasts of luxuriant interiors and an improved, authentic array of food items.

With its posh and painstakingly done décor, the restaurant creates an upmarket ambience no doubt. But one look at the menu and you are surprised to find the rates as low as they have always been. A filling Rava Dosa will cost you as little as Rs.40 while a pair of Idlis are just Rs.35. For connoisseurs of North Indian cuisine, there is the distinctive taste of Chana Masala and Dal Makhni to be enjoyed for a pittance. The contents of the Vishesh Thali are changed frequently to give the regular customers something constantly new. Surely, the renovation has changed the décor, but not the prices.

"Each fine detail has been looked at to give the customer a 5-star feeling," boasts the Manager, R K Malhotra, even as noises of carpenters at work reach you from the other end of the restaurant. Though the manager insists that Bhaja Govindam has no "fixed clientele," it is evident from the convenient prices and commonplace mood that it largely caters to the people whose offices are situated around the area. But then, anyone who wants to have a slice of delicious South Indian food can come here, no matter which social group they belong to. Bhaja Govindam may not be as swish and swanky as the owners claim, but it definitely has a lot to offer at affordable prices. And therein lies the reason that makes dining here a worthwhile experience. Takes care not only of you hunger but your wallet too.
