“Gourmet family experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2010

Far surpassing a B&B experience in Delhi, gourmet food amidst the swaying tree tops of Hauz Khas in south Delhi was an idyllic setting for a European couple on a post retirement trip to India. An ex-colleague of mine decided to visit India but this time bring his wife. They refused to stay with me and prefered being on their own but didnt want the impersonal touch of a hotel. Tree Tops surpasses all expectations for them. Tannie's cooking was a dream come true for the wife who is not very adventurous about eating. It wasnt just the great meals. What she loved most was being able to learn how to cook what she liked ... that way she claims she carried home lasting memories that could be re-lived with an afternoon in her own kitchen back home. The husband, retired as a senior manager with a large MNC, retains a youthful curiosity about life. For him, an evening drink was always more than just one because he found the company of Murad with his vast experience of life fascinating. These visitors cut down their out of Delhi time to a weekend in Jaipur and a quick day trip to Jaipur. They vastly enjoyed their time in India and promise to return next year ... but only if they can stay with their "Gourmet Couple". Now that's an accolade if i ever heard one!

Tannie and Murad were ever so helpful and the food we had at their place was great. The room we stayed in was the big room with the roof terrace, which was used to enjoy the odd afternoon beer while watching the parrots fly by. For being in Delhi it was remarkably quiet and the views were great!

We got lots of tips (too many?) to visit places around Delhi and beyond. The advice to visit the Taj by taxi was one that didn't work out too well and we'd have preferred to have gone by fast train. Other than that our whole stay lasted a good few days longer than we had planned initially, we were just so comfortable.

One point of criticism was that the bed was really hard, it wasn't easy for me to sleep well on it, I eventually ended up putting the couch's cushions under the mattress for more comfort. Mind you, my girlfriend was fine on it, but then again, she had just spent a month in Assam for charity work, under circumstances that would make a lot of places seem like a 5 star hotel.

If you want to avoid the faceless impersonal world of hotels then Tree Tops is THE place stay in Delhi. Ideally situatedm Tree Tops is far enough away from the hussle of the centre but close enough (with a new Metro link too) to get to anywhere you'd like to do. Although surrounded by excellent places to eat you may not wish to leave the hospitality of Murad and Tannie. They are the perfect hosts and will ensure that your stay with them is like staying with old friends. Convivial company and excellent cooking is a recipe that cannot be beaten! I look forward to my next trip....

I started my six month internship with a two week stay with Tannie and Murad's wonderful home. With day two they integrated my into the family and helped me with my start into daily Indian life. From tips on good food, culture and sightseeing - up to finding a suitable mechanic who helped me buy a motorbike. All worked out great and I can warmheartedly recommend this wonderful place. It's not only a place to stay for a night or two, it's a great place to start an Indian experience.

I haven't tried Tannie's cooking classes, but I just moved 15 minutes away, so I am definitely coming back for some lessons.

Maybe I'll see you there!

My wife and I stayed at Tree Tops for 4 nights in October 2010, a high-class bed and breakfast run by a high-class couple. It is located a few kilometres south of New Delhi's centre in the leafy residential neighbourhood of Haus Khaz. Tannie and Murad welcomed us into their home and treated us like members of their own family during our stay. We took the main room on the top floor, which has an ensuite bathroom and a large terrace overlooking the neighbouring park.

Tannie is a former chef who now runs cookery classes, and Murad is an author and journalist. They also excel as hosts, providing us with all the meals we needed, enlightening and humorous conversation, help with our sightseeing itinerary and a cold beers on our return from each day's activities. Murad accompanied us on a tour of the Red Fort and Tannie arranged our transfers and a car to Agra. The food is sensational - Tannie and her resident chef are equally adept at Thai and Indian cuisine. It's so good that we didn't even consider eating out any night.

In short, Tree Tops is a lesson in how to run a guest house - such perfect hospitality and sensational food that you cannot help but relax and unwind. Our only regret was there wasn't enough time for a cookery class!
