Not Just Parathas @ GK 2

Located in the Busy & Upmarket Greater Kailash- Part 2 Market, Not Just Parathas or NJP, as its being referred to , does live upto its name but not exactly in terms of the Food.... Located in the Corner, just next to Dominoes Pizza... The Entrance to the Restaurant does give one some fair idea of what to expect.... There is a Huge Wooden Darwaaza, Probably the One you would find in Old Havelis or Movie sets.....The ambience looks just perfect for a Lazy Sunday Lunch.... The Place is Decked up with Yester Years Bollywood Film Posters of the Reigning queens of those years, Nargis & Madhubala....There is some amazing Old Hindi Film Music Playing in the Background

Exquisite Menu of Not Just Parathas

There seems to be a whole world built around the Parathas, I must say even the Menu Card was quite Innovative & strikingly different...The Parathas are served in 2 Sizes 6” & 9”....Vow My Mom would have never known it,, and also at home You are never supposed to measure or Count your food....”Buri Nazar lagti hai..” The Parathas are served either Tandoori or the Traditional Tawa Fried Ones.... The variety of Parathas is Humungous, Chicken Keema, Mutton Keema, Chicken Omelette, NJP Spl Egg Paratha, which is a Warqi Paratha with all the Layers deep Coated with Egg & deep Fried...absolute Divine in taste.... We started off with the Chicken Shorba which is a Nice, Clear Home made kind of a Soup... Nicely spiced with Garam Masala, lots of Coriander, its supposed o be a real warmer for winters & keeps cold away .. We ordered the Egg Bhurji, Chicken Tikka, Egg Paratha, Chicken Keema Parathas.... Probably the Chicken Tikka & the NJP Special Egg Paratha was the best out of all the 4-5 varieties we tried.....
We also tried the Chicken Pizza Paratha – which is nothing but a Thicker Paratha cooked long over the Pan, & with the basic Pizza Stuffings of Capsicum, Onion & Chicken Put on Top of the Crisp Pizza Paratha Base – Different & nice, Pizza Topping on the Desi Paratha
Do come definitely for the Experience..you might go down the Bollywood memory Lane & Try the Shorba, Pizza Parathas & the NJP Special.....Word of Caution – Try the Tawa Fried instead of the Tandoori...coz Parathas were never part of a Diet Food...
Ambience – 9
Value for Money – 6.5
Taste -6.5
Hygiene - 7
