Chur Chur Nan  with mushrooms at Masala House and cheese served with Dal, made for a meal in itself

Masala House  is  situated in the quaint U shaped market of  Sunder Nagar, better know for Nathus and vintage souvenir shops. A part of a chain of restaurants from New York, as the name suggests it serves Indian  Awadhi and Mughlai Cuisine in a new avatar. Having heard good things about and described by many as an apt Family Restaurant in Delhi for celebrations it we decided to give it a try for my Dad’s Birthday.

They were kind enough to accommodate us even though they were fully booked. ( I recommend prior reservation if your plan to go  for Dinner) As you enter, the wooden interiors are warm and soothing and reminiscent of the old world charm.

Anarkali Kebabs
The Anarkali Tikki, a winning combination of Beetroot, quinoa and peanuta

We began with a Parathwala Paneer Tikka , slices of cottage sandwiched with cream cheese filling, marinated with a blend of spices and then grilled. Pan seared Quinoa and beetroot kebabs, delicately flavored with pomegranate, oozing peanut butter is  what you get when you order the Anarkali Tikki. An interesting combination and was my favorite dish of the evening.

Parathwala Paneer Tikka

The main course comprised of a Dum ki Dal , you  regular dal makhani , velvety and perfect and a  paneer  labadar, flavorsome with a thick heavy bodied  tomato gravy as expected. We order an assortment of breads   and the Chur Chur Nan with Mushroom and cheese stood out the most among them. Flaky bread filled with  mushroom and cheese made for winning combination that just melted in your mouth. I would rate it as one of the better restaurants in South Delhi for A family Meal

The Exquisite Service at this Family Restaurant

The food was top notch, but the warm and enthusiastic service by our waiter  enhanced our experience. Desserts was a phirni as a Birthday Cake  with complements of the restaurant. (After A great meal the desserts here are best avoided and it better to head out for a Ice Cream or Kulfi) The waiters and manager all joined in wishing my Dad which only made the entire evening more special for us.


From the beginning their attention to details in the form of delicate wine glasses for water,  innovative crockery and stellar service stood out for me.Add to this a soothing ambiance and excellent food and you are in for a beautiful dining experience which is rare to come by in the city full of  eateries and restaurants

If like me you too have not been to this  gem of a restaurant in South Delhi , then do drop by for a brilliant meal and excellent service
