Ever wondered what inspires a concept best clubs in cancun? With a few mushrooming every month one wonders how soon before people run out of ideas. A visit to Orange Hara reminds us that everything is good in the inspiration department.
Located in Saket’s District Centre, behind Select City Walk Mall, Orange Hara is a vibrant concoction of Indian cuisine and stylish ambience. So much so that just the signage is tempting enough.
Walking in to the place and you see what happens when an Indian restaurant is designed like a night club. Hues of oranges greet your senses as you are led to a table. The menu quenches your curiosity about the name.
Drawing inspiration from the seven chakras stacked in the human body, orange, the one with the colour of the Sun is responsible for increasing one’s appetite and awakening the taste buds. While the menu offers great answers it also raises some questions – what should one skip in a very well designed menu?
Orange Hara comprehensive menu has non alcoholic beverages starting at less than Rs. 130 and two options in soups at a very modest Rs. 75 onwards. The drinks menu is a very detailed one as well but rest assured to be very loud while ordering the booze.
The waiters in their enthusiasm might just serve you a large even if you specifically asked for a small! The starters feature in-house specialties such as Neza Kebab (Rs. 440 onwards), grilled tender chicken and the exceptionally crafted Mattarwali Tikki (Rs. 190 onwards).
The staff is energetic, the place youthful and the mood upbeat. There is hardly anything that is unplanned in this place and thank god for that. The main course features a varied assortment and do try out the Dal Tadka, which is for some strange reason usually loses out to the Dal Makhni.
The thing that truly stands out at Orange Hara is the non-veg pickles. The four options with the Lasooni Mugh standing out are available in a host of option from small single orders to servings for the entire table.
These pickles are the single redeeming feature of Orange Hara. Keeping the lofty standards set by the pickles ordering Achaari Mugh was a mistake. The gravy was watery and the taste a little undecided.
Perhaps the mood of the joint sets the bar a couple of notches too high for it’s own good. Till we try just about everything on the menu it’s the pickle, the service and the ambience of Orange Hara that will ensure a second visit!
