Zaffarani Zaika
Yashwant Place Shopping Complex, Floor One, Satya Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi - 110021
Ph.: 011 2412 1520
Meal for two (without alcohol): Rs 1,100

The idea of an Awadhi dinner carries with it a promise of blatant opulence that drips straight off the walls and onto your food. The interiors of Zaffarani Zaika, however, do little to conjure a Nawabi durbar. The blue and green lights remind you more of those garish eateries in Kanpur, where neon is needed to convince you that the city is urban. Zaffarani’s instrumental piano music is undoubtedly borrowed from the nearby Dum Pukht in ITC’s Maurya Sheraton, where mouthing Raj Kapoor lyrics is something you instinctively do while letting those kakori kababs literally melt in your mouth.
