True to its reviews, this is old world charm re-visited. I took my parents along and they got nostalgic remembering the India Coffee house in CP, Delhi. Dirt cheap prices. Coffee, South Indian food and bread toast are amazing. We also ordered vegetable pakodas and those were like mashed vegetables fried in the form of puris :-) Overall nice experience.... More

Just love it because of its values. Attached because of old memories . Coffee has the same old taste, unbeatable . Prices are low , unbeatable. And food fresh as always. Don't miss if you value traditions and the originality.

the moment you enter in this restaurant , it feels you have entered a time machine, takes you 50 years back. Faded posters, old furniture, worn out cutlery, server's dresses, everything reminds you good old days. Though food is average but then how may old coffee house have you seen lately.

It retains the trade mark iNDIAN COFFEE HOUSE LOOKS. Very dark and dull but the quaint atmosphere of all the coffee houses of India.I think they patent the decor. It lends to the air, with old posters of actress Ragini sipping coffee and many wall posters. The waitors have the real old time uniforms looks like you are inside the... More

At first, the Indian coffee house doesn't look like a great ambience. But once the food arrives, we know why this place is so highly rated. We were with friends who were south Indian and they recommended we have the South Indian food. And the idlis were very good. We ended up having breakfast here for all the three days... More

It was the terrible palace, very old style, no one bother to take order after calling we sit there approx 15 min. and no one come to take order, then finally we left without eating anything. The seats and tables are too dirty. Really very cheap place to go.
