It  was Saturday afternoon, after a lovely Breakfast event with Foodmaniacs (my FB Group) at Ramada Central.....Received an invite from our very own  Foodie Surdie ....Apne pyaare Avi Jee, arre yaar ZAGA—Courtyard Dining  waale.......Avininder Singh jee (hahaaa)….. For the launch party of “ Chapter 25 “  in the evening the same day, 12 th of July ……Chapter 25 is a lounge pub…..with a difference…..

 We reached MGF Metropolitan Mall, Saket, New Delhi around 9.20 p.m. and headed straight to Chapter 25 which is located on the 2nd floor just next to ZAGA……..Thanks to Avi jee…. We were welcomed by Mr. Rohan Chaliha and then introduced to a TEAM Member at “Chapter 25” Mr. Aseem Chalana…..It was great meeting him…and knowing his plans and aspirations for the place……His passion for cooking and experimenting (as told by him)  has got him into this business ……He plans to introduce one innovative recipe from each state of India in to his menu very soon….The recipes which  they have fused with other cuisines to get the best outcome…….Details will follow when they are introduced and we get a chance to  savour them…..


Bar Scene






Coming to the interiors and ambiance of this place…….Nicely done...in Wood and Glass…with Teak finish and woody and neat looks……takes us back to the basics…… a gramophone decal on one wall…and a quote by John Keats on a glass partition…very nostalgic……Not a very big place but still nice…..The open area… …I mean to say the Terrace part is also being renovated and designed to incorporate into the lounge…..Wow I can imagine how beautiful it will be in the open…under the star lit sky (obviously in good weather)………Things will take some time to get streamlined and get running…like air-conditioning etc….

 Wow….is the word when we talk about the Music and sound equipment used in the pub……The sound was terrific and music too……The Crowd went crazy and everyone was dancing and enjoying……….

The Bar is well stocked with alcohol……Vodkas, Whiskies, Beers and Rums ……..with professional hands at work making lovely cocktails and concoctions………


We were offered Mojito…which was well made……and the food which was being offered was good too…….

We were served Fish cakes or kebabs which were really awesome……Patlican kebabs (lamb mince kebabs in Turkish style)….the 4 cheese pizza which was good ……..Nachos with sour cream and salsa (nachos were too good but salsa needs a dressing up) Mezze Platter.. …Which had pita bread, hummus, babagannouj (lebanese dips), potato kibbeh (potato mash with burghul kebabs) and some more things…. Hummus was awesome……..other things need a strong makeover……

Nothing extraordinary about the taste of food…..as   it was just a launch day menu (and we can v.well understand the situation..obvious reasons) with quick presentations and fast service……. Many things are going to get added and improvised in the coming days as promised by our dear friend Aseem ……….All in all I can say the place is going to Rock with its music, food and a laid back style of lounging……

We wish All the Very Best for their future ……. 3 Cheers for “Chapter 25 “………..
