Chicken cannot get any yummier

Imagine a hot steaming platter of Tandoori Chicken waiting just for you, when you return home tired and battered from office. In less than few minutes the delicacy will be happily resting inside your gurgling stomach. Metrolife has found for you one of the best non-veg food joints in the city.

South-Delhi based, three decades old Chick-Fish is located in the heart of the hardware market of Malviya Nagar enroute to Panchsheel Enclave. Established in 1982 it was originally a take-away that sold fish tikka in the evenings.

As word-of-mouth spread, chick-Fish’s popularity it soon turned into a full-time fine dining restaurant though the take-away option still exists. “Our Fish Tandoori and Barbeque chicken is always in demand”, shares the owner Rajesh Sethi.

With a seating capacity of ninety-five people, the place boasts of wide variety of chicken appetizers and fish starters. If you are a vegetarian, you must taste Dal Makhni (which tops everything else), Shahi Paneer, Malai Kofta with multiple types of parantha. Paneer Shashlik, Chicken Kali Mirch are a must for spice lovers while Butter Chicken,  and Chicken Seekh kebab are worth a try too.

The chicken dishes are distinct in taste because of the time given to them for marination. For instance Afghani Chicken is marinated for at least 5-6 hours before it is cooked in its sauces. Don’t miss the Punjabi Tarka Chicken either.   

The USP of the food are the spices. Each dish is prepa­r­ed with a basic masala that gives it a specific but balanced taste. The restaurant takes pride in their standard of quality which has remained uncha­n­ged for all these years.

Satyam Bindal, a regular customer says, “What I like most is the hospitality. The employees give you proper attention and pay special attention to your tastes.”

Sandeep Malhotra comes here every two months with his family. “It is a tradition with the
family to order murgh malai, seekh kabab and dal makhni. The rest of the dishes keep taking rounds on the table.”

The workforce is trained to give you the ingredients in each dish to help you make a better choice. Their most popular dish, Fish Fry is available only from August through March. It is also discontinued during navratras. The restaurant opens from 12-3pm in afternoon and then again from 6.30-11 pm in the evening. Avoid going on weekends as there is a long wait for tables.
