Monkey Bar, New Delhi
If you want to visit a magnificent restaurant, Monkey Bar in Delhi is the place to be. Its reflective glass pyramid structure—reminiscent of the Louvre in Paris, is bound to blow your mind. You’re welcome by exposed pipelines in vibrant hues that add all too much colour against brick walls. We also loved the chalkboard-like graffiti on the stairs that have renditions of the restaurant’s signature items on the menu. Now if this one’s not going to get you excited, we don’t know what else will!
Popular Pune restaurant, Terttulia opened its doors in Mumbai only a year ago. Given the fact that the restaurant had won many hearts in Pune, it was only obvious that Mumbai’s food lovers would warm up to the interesting joint too. But besides the delectable food at this spot, it is the beautiful décor that will catch your eye. Tiny vintage pieces of decor, European mason jars, gorgeous chalk art, floral upholstery and rustic brick walls and an outdoor eating space—it’s all going to charm you just as much as their European and Mediterranean cuisine would.
Kaidi Kitchen, Chennai
Want a unique experience of eating in a jail-like set-up? Head over to Chennai’s Kaidi Kitchen. The restaurant’s enclosures look like large prison cells and even the waiters are dressed as jail superintendents while several others are dressed as “kaidis”. To add to the jail-like ambience, the cells have handcuffs suspended on them while toy guns have been displayed on the walls. Not everyone’s cup of tea but if you’re looking for something out of the box, this place could be it.
