New Delhi: Looking for fine dining in East Delhi? Visit The Yellow Chilli in East Gokulpur and treat your taste buds with celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s signature dishes as well as tastier and spicier preparations from the a la carte menu.
Despite being a weekday, the front of house was well occupied and the kitchen was in the weeds. Ram Krishna Tripathi, general manager of the restaurant, said the occupancy is over 60 percent during weekdays and at the weekend it’s packed.
With Kapoor’s signature dishes dominating the menu, the food would woo those whose taste buds crave for Indian spices or Mughlai cuisine.
Innovative beverages and starters add to the lip-smacking line-up.
Â“Our motto is – be customer-centric, satisfy customer. We feel if guests are satisfied, it will automatically result in profit,Â” said Tripathi, who believes word of mouth publicity has helped in increasing the footfall.
Started six months ago by Sawhney cousins – Rahul and Vishal, the 2,500 square feet restaurant, which has a staff of 40 people trained under operation head of SK Restaurants Pvt Ltd, hosts private parties too. It can accommodate a gathering of 100 to 150 people.
Â“The buffet dinner for the large gathering costs approximately Rs.1,00,000, inclusive taxes. We have so far hosted seven-eight such parties. But we do not serve alcohol,Â” said Tripathi and added that customers can customise the menu.
With prices not so high, considering it is a signature eatery from Kapoor, and decent service, the place is worth a visit.
