The Junkyard is just that with junk and antiques hanging from all over the ceilings and walls. The menu is extensive with choices from breakfast to appetizers to a full course meal. Firstly opened at CP and now they can also be found at Rajourie Garden. Happy news is they are also opening a new branch at Sachet. They stick to their theme very appreciably. The nice fully ac, dim-lit with a family type environment and a hardcore place to party.
AMBIANCE: perfectly junk
As the name says, concept is different and new. I personally loved the ambassador car seating. The first thing that I noticed was the expanse of the cafe. I mean, it’s quite, quite spacious. Next, is the decor. It was amazing to see how they used junk, spare parts, Used cars, cans and everything into such a manner that you may feel good to be between that junk. Every corner of the place gets a character of its own, because the way the ‘junk’ is used, without losing out on the basic theme of the place. Mostly scrap and everything in a store house. The wooden table and chairs add to the theme. Even the crockery they use to serve is always creative.
Coming to food, though the place has an extensive menu, with Indian, Asian & Mediterranean options, we moved to INDIAN menu with some drinks and sheesha. We asked the staff, to help us decide and not only did they suggest us the options but also explained each of the dish, in a pretty detailed manner.
The Tandoori platter had the usual Chicken Tikka, Fish Tikka and Lamb seekh. But something different was, was the tender texture and the juicy chunks. The seekh, with a unique blend of spices was so pleasing and different.
Palak Patta chaat. A plate full of palak leaves, it’s topped with crispy namkeen with some dips. You won’t get this anywhere and here it was not that yum.
Edison Bulb & Skeleton (drinks). The names of the cocktails forced us to go for them. Vodka with watermelon, lime juice, and basil. Next, the Skeleton, was another visual delight. This vodka, green melon, white rum, topped with lemonade is a refreshing lemony drink. The way they serve is so good that you might have a selfie or get a click to tease others
Hmmmmmm. A point where you need to compromise. They staff does the formality and don’t serve you by heart. They will talk to you sweetly. You may need to wait extra to get your order on the table.
