Billee Studio Bar is the latest addition to the much competitive restaurant
scene in Delhi.Located in the much coveted and posh market of GK 1 M Block,
just next to Sakleys cafe.
to forget like most other places in the same mkt this place also does not have
an elevator. Done, on 3 levels starting 1st floor, the bar and seating area
with a small balcony with seating , 2nd floor, all seating till 3rd
floor which is a terrace with a small water body . This place has really quirky
interiors themed as per the 1970’s retro style. The space is all about quirky
set-ups-Bombay Velvet meets modern quirk. Attractive wallpaper patterns-
developed keeping in mind the strong yet fluid nature of Art Nouveau.
Wallpapers, upholstery etc all
has long flowery vines on them. Old artefacts like typewriter, lamps and other
things adorn the wall canopies and show areas. On the 2nd floor it's a big
seating area with a DJ console. Mostly all the places and table tops are made
in onyx . B&W pictures of old time heroines and old style jewellery in the
show windows makes this place really special.
We sat on
the terrace which has heaters etc for cold days. Coming to the Menu which has
been curated and done by our very own famous Chef, Sabyasachi Gorai or as we
all know him Chef Saby. The name behind the much appreciated eating joints like
Olive, SBOW , Amreli and his own baby Lavaash by Saby.
Bisht who is the Exec. Chef at Junglee Billee met us and recommended us a
few dishes. We ordered as per his advice. Soups like mushroom and Apple
and tomato both were really awesome. Dishes like Md. Ali Rd. Chicken Boti which
is kind of tikka bit all covered in a buttered mix yummy and soft ro the core
and Sion Koliwada Chicken is a fried chicken in a masala batter served with
Chipotle mayo. The Bhaijaan seekh kebab was one of the best, 2 most delicious
and succulent grilled seekh kebabs served over a big maida parantha with loads
of onions. Awesome...awesome...awesome. .. The next was the Prawn Aglio Olio
which is a sizzler dish made with olives, sundried tomatoes white wine and
Prawns. My colleague tried it and just fell flat by their taste and texture.He
said he had never tasted prawns like that before. Totally awesome.
I was eagerly waiting for the Berry pulao which is again a Parsi inspired dish.
And yes what a great Berry mutton pulao. Layered fragrant rice with boneless
pieces of lamb and nuts and Berries all over. The sweet and Tangy flavor was so
good , can't be expressed in words.
The continental section is really good too.Like the prawns which we had and now
we also tried their Bangers and Mash which is a platter of chargrilled sausages
on a bed of green pea ash, potato mash and caramelised onions with loads of BBQ
sauce. It was again a real hearty dish too and perfectly apt for this cold
had a real good dessert called the Mava Cheese Cake made with Khoya mix topped
with a cherry. The Apple pie with ice cream was also good but the Mava Cheese cake won the race. Overall a
must visit place especially for quirky interiors and awesome food.
