Meant for a quiet, savouring experience

Fast emerging as the next possible hub for cinemagoers and those looking for a quick bite is the Sangam Courtyard, located at RK Puram. And, that is what made Cafe Delhi Heights (CDH) chain open an outlet in the place.

With a revamped theatre, the courtyard is a host to food joints that are looking to tap into regular visitors as well as those opting for quaint options amindst the hustle-bustle to spend some quality time.

Chef Satish Chandra explains, “The Courtyard offers a variety of options for diners looking for a quiet meal, a quick coffee, or an evening drink. Each place is unique in terms of cuisine and ambience.”

The place is quirky with different types of seating arrangements and colourful cushions. More contemporary furniture that spells vogue has been used in this particular outlet.

Their separate couch area offers privacy and has individual TV screens. Not to miss the interiors of the cafe which have been brightened with more colours and vibrant themes.
What is also a new addition is a small private section that has been added to one side of the restaurant. This portion of the cafe can be used to host private parties and get-togethers for about 10-15 people.

Metrolife was welcomed by a bread basket, a signature of CDH outlets along with flavoured butter. We started off with appetisers Crispy Lotus Root with Honey and Chilli from the vegetarian offering, which was very similar to local honey chilli potato fries. We then ordered Australian Debore Pork Racks with Asian Greens where the pork was nicely softened from the inside. From the beverage menu, we tried coffee with cinnamon dolce latte called Triple C’s’and Caramel Machiato drinks which were appealing choices.

The cafe serves a host of shakes ranging from the classics to contemporary flavours along with freshly squeezed juices like New New Glory (honey new melon, fresh mint springs and green apple with fresh lime squeeze), Pineapple, Sweet Lime and Strawberry Splendid and C Orange (hearty combination of fresh orange and carrot).  The menu further includes Continental, American, Thai and Indian cuisines.

From the mains, we gave Delicious Quesdillas from the ‘Entree and Eternity’ section (available both in vegetarian and non-vegetarian menu, priced at Rs 475), a try. Prepared with classic Mexican toasted flour tortilla with melted cheese inside, this dish was our first pick. One can feel the cheese melt in the mouth. But what stood out was Rajasthani Lal Maas served with bajra roti and masala chaas; the filling portion and well-presented mix was the highlight. Though priced a little higher at Rs 575, this fiery hot mutton dish is a must try for those in love with traditional Indian spices.

While the chef mentions they are “trying to create fusion recipes” with paninis,
hot dogs, galouti kebab, veg kebab and pasta, the Multi Mushroom Stroganoff, priced at Rs 475, is worth a try. In the burger section,their signature dish Juicy Lucy Burger with Cedar Cheese and Lamb, is enormous and good for two.

After the tummy-filling courses, desserts or ‘Happy Endings’ as they mention, are something we looked forward to. Metrolife chose Italian Tiranisu and dessert of the day— Chocolate Lasagne which had portions enough to fill up the little empty space after a filling meal and with it, we admit CDH fills the gap for a place like this in this part of the city.
