Wonderful sizzles (if you are a fan of them). The place has 2 sit-outs, one on the front side is a quitter sit out and other on the back side of the market is with loud music. The food is very nice always and good place to have a small family party.

I have been to Chonas only two times but I have enjoyed this place thoroughly. This place is really chilled out and and full of youngsters just sitting around with a beer and hanging out. Don't expect to be dazzled because Chonas isn't anything special. What really is special about this place is the servers, the ambience and the laid... More

My spouse and I were in New Delhi for about a month, and we found ourselves returning to Chonas a number of times. The food was excellent (some of the best butter chicken we found - and great garlic naan bread), always good and always fresh. The restaurant is busiest in the afternoons - particularly on weekends. In the afternoon... More

Downright scary! We went there a little after dinner time, around 10 pm, & chose to sit on the terrace. It was my husband's birthday eve, & what a disaster! Soon, a group of shady looking Indian & African-American men came & occupied the table next to us. A scantily-clad woman of African-American origin accompanied them. I do not want... More

I can @ least say the staff was very nice. But the ambiance was not what my friends and I were looking for. While the place itself is relatively nice looking, there was a DJ playing the most depressing music. It was more like someone who wanted to kill themselves was playing the most morose songs they could find. There... More

The access is a little weird but the waiter are very nice, the food is good and nice selection of spirits. Also the music played by a DJ -only rock and western music is a good break after listening the local music.

Everything is over priced. The interiors in the bigger place on the first floor is tacky, weird and extremely uncomfortable. Chonas had an old world charm in its ground floor place in the front side of the market. But alas it is all gone and lack lustre now.

The Chonas is a bar and restaurant, located in Khan Market, that has come a long way from its humble beginnings back in 1988. Originally an ice cream parlor, the outlet soon grew to be a restaurant. The unusual décor of the restaurant includes pipes running over the walls, barrels as bar stools, and plush red seating. chonas is a... More

The food is good but quite similar to what you get elsewhere at half the price. To make use of the small space they have provided small stools. Service was OK but not up to expectations. At these prices, I expect everything to be special. Disappointing... Never visit again in my next Delhi visit.
