Every second restaurant these days dabbles in some form of fusion food. It could be something as sophisticated as a chaat that has been deconstructed into a minimal dish or something as simple as a pizza topped with shahi paneer. In either case, there is a fine line between whether the customer will hate it or love it. In the Darzi Bar & Kitchen’s case, fortunately, the judgment leans towards the latter.

The restaurant, which recently opened its doors, has presented its dishes, fusion or otherwise, in an interesting manner which ends up helping the customer quite a bit. Often when we go to a restaurant, we end up asking the serving size of the dish being presented. And if we don’t, we end up disappointed or overwhelmed by the quantity.

 
Out of all the fusion experiments on offer, the ‘Madarasi Pasta’ turns out to be both delicious and simple. The Italian sauce has been replaced by typically South Indian flavours, and it all works beautifully. Another fusion favourite is the ‘I-MA-GIN’ dessert which is a strawberry and basil sorbet served with coconut phirni.

Such is not the case at Darzi. You could, of course, still consult with the waiter but thankfully the entire menu is divided into ‘chotta’ and ‘bada’ sections. Everything from seafood to soups is treated the same way.
  
 
Apart from the pasta, the dish that stands out is the ‘Mushroom Galouti Kebab’. (‘Cheesy Spinach Mushroom’ is another tasty mushroom dish.) Vegetarians who have heard of the famous galouti kebabs but have been unable to try should especially opt for this dish. Yes, the taste is not the same. But the texture is as close to the original as a vegetarian dish can get.
 
The drinks are mostly on the ordinary side. There are signature drinks such as the ‘Darzi Kit’, a peach-based concoction, as well as filling shakes, such as the ‘Choco Brownie shake’
 
A word about the theme of the restaurant: The theme, naturally, adds a distinct character to the place. There are measurement boards, huge pair of scissors as well as sewing machines which ensure that the place lives up to its name (darzi means tailor in Hindi) and maintains a unique identity as well.
     
The Darzi Bar & Kitchen is located at H-55, 1st Floor, Outer Circle, Connaught Place. Average price for two is Rs1500.
