Restaurant Review: Civil House, Khan Market, Delhi

Come winters in Delhi and what you like more about the city is the nip in the air and the quintessential winter sun to bask in it’s glory, and if you get to stay in a place which also serves you Food and Hot Beverages to compliment the cold weather…AWESOME.


The newest place to hit khan Market Eateries is “ Civil House” which has been opened by a Food passionate Bubbly girl “Suwbha Chopra” who after getting a degree from London School of Economics ventured into this passionate stream. Dabbing over London, New York and Delhi time zones,she is on a learning graph of “how to do business with passion in India”.

Being the place that it is Khan Market has a repertoire of being the haunt of Embassy and consulate members in the day, lawyers in the afternoon and Corporate honchos in the evening and Civil House has a Menu which has a variety for all above, plus more for the young crowds. you could see the likes of Army Generals, Politicians and youngsters who came for the LIVE band performances on the terrace.This 48 seater Cafe is split over two floors and has seating for 36 on one floor and 12 on the other some of them are open to sky.

The Appetisers are Good especially the Garlic Bread with Milan Tomatoes and English Cheddar. The Moroccan Potatoes were very delicately done, which will definitely be liked by people with sweet taste for things.

The chill on the terrace ensured that we get something warm now and it was just the time for “Warm Mushroom and Pak Choy” which was so much the need of the hour and went down so smoothly,


Next on agenda were some Burgers, the beetroot, Feta and Walnut burger proved that the place is going be famous for this Dish as their Signature. The fish and chips Burger seems to be the twisty tweak done by “Suwbha” to remind her of the days gone by in London and complete the look and feel of the Ambience inside which reflects the Typical English Chairs, Tables and crockery and cutlery. Some elements like the Classic Venetian Mirrors resembled the Victorian age gone by.

We decided to move to a new level and try the main course of Three Mushroom risotto and Gratinated Polenta with Mushroom, grilled Veg. and cream and a more than generous helping of Chicken paupiette filled with chopped mushrooms and caper jus and served with brown rice.


Icing on the cake was Vanilla Panacotta served with orange and pink pepper gastrique which was so nicely done that it could not be resisted to be eaten before being photographed. To make the food more healthy we got some freshly brewed beans served to us as Cappuccino.


All in all the place is set to being abuzz and here to stay for a long time.
