“The one at GK1 is downright horrible”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The worst cake I've ever eaten in my life! Had ordered an apple-cinnamon cake, baked nachos and masala chai. Apart from the masala chai (which they couldn't foul up even if they tried as it was tea bag tea), everything else was pathetic. The cake takes the cake when it comes to poorly baked cakes- raw, dense, squidgy with nary a hint of either apple or cinnamon! The baked nachos were hardly baked at all- struggled to find traces of the cheese on top- even my cheese fanatic toddler was disappointed! The worst was the appalling attitude of the staff- when informed of the horrible cake, they did not offer to replace and instead tried arguing that cakes were supposed to be like that. Also, when the bill was paid, they conveniently 'forgot' to pay us back the change in coins (had given them RS 1000 for a Rs 598 bill and was returned Rs 400). Though I know Rs 2 would not make any difference to anyone, it was still absolutely unprofessional on the part of the staff to assume things for granted. Needless to say, a horrid experience- tasteless food, ridiculous pricing and appalling behavious! Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole! If there was a negative rating on TripAdvisor, these guys would have surely earned it!

“Hangout place”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

With friends or alone, this is a cool place to hangout. Good food and desserts. They also have books on display and 'never ask you to leave'.

“Yikes - not cheap.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is a nice cafe on top of a bookshop. It has a pleasant atmosphere and a greta terrace looking out on a Delhi street.

We had lunch and a tea. The food was OK and the tea excellent. However it is not cheap - so make sure you bear this in mind when ordering.

“Overpriced but good”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food was delicious, but way too expensive if you are on a budget. The lassis are great, but again, expensive. It's a cute cafe and we enjoyed sitting and reading our books.
