Right in front of Gate No 3 Tilak Nagar Metro Station, you will find Guru Chela. This newly opened pure-vegetarian restaurant is worth the visit in every single manner. Nostalgic name, catchy theme, an exotic ambience and delicious food; this place has everything one can imagine for.
The restaurant is spread across two floors and has a beautiful outdoor sitting area. The space is beautifully decorated, with marvelous cage lighting on the ceiling, funky posters on the wall and graffiti painted windows. The outdoor sitting area is well decorated with fine pebbles and lush greenery. The whole area is covered with trees which gives it an amazing setup.
Coming to the food, they serve strict vegetarian food. The menu comprises all the well-known Indian street food and main course food items. The food here is delicious and the presentation is enticing.
I decided to start my culinary voyage with the ever-classic soups, hot n sour and sweet corn. The hot n sour soup was well made and has a generous portion of fresh veggies and cottage cheese. What I loved about the soup was the consistency. Both, hot n sour and sweet corn soups had an amazing thick consistency with a subtle balance of flavors. Great for warming yourself during winters.
What a dish it was! Superbly made and was so lip-smackingly delicious. The Dahi Bhalla was served in a little white plate with freshly cut green banana leaf. Not just it looked so beautiful, it tasted amazing. The Bhalla was soft, spongy and had that coarse flavors that we are used to. The flavors of Dahi, Dhalla and herbs were so well-mixed. Great dish. I would recommend it to all.
Aloo Tikki Chaat and Aloo Samosa Chaat
Chaat is “the street food of Delhi.” No matter where you go, you can find chaat across the city. Keeping the tradition of Delhi street food, the restaurant serves Aloo Tikki Chaat and Aloo Samosa Chaat. The Aloo Tikki was crisp, well-fried until golden brown and the stuffings was fresh. So was the Aloo Samosa. It was hard for me to decide which was the best. The Aloo Tikki came with sweet flavoured curd atop with pomegranate seeds and chaat masala. On the other hand, the Aloo Samosa Chaat was served with spicy chole, ginger and green chillies. Both of them was so delicious and had a spicy flavor. Street food lovers should go for this.
Another street-food that I ordered was Chole Bhature. An ever-popular Chole Bhature was pleasant enough. Although the Bhature was soft and fluffy, the taste of Chole was mediocre. It wasn’t spicy, nor it had that rich flavors of Indian spices. Good, nothing great though.
A wonderful assortment of some of the finely-selected Chinese delicacies such as veg hakka noodles, veg manchurian, dry paneer chilli, veg spring rolls, chutney and salad. The platter was great. The manchurian and paneer chilli was delicious. The noodles was soft and made well. The spring rolls were stuffed generously and tasted well with sweet chilli chutney. Overall, a great dish for main course.
I was glad to see the gulab jamun in the dessert menu. The warm gulab jabun and cold, sweet rabdi, what a match it was. The gulab jamun was soft, warm and was perfectly sweet. The rabdi topped on the gulab jamun was mouth watering. Recommended.
This place is heaven for pure vegetarians. The food, the taste, the service, the ambiance, everything is wonderful. A great place in West Delhi.
