As soon as you enter Khi Khi, you’re transported. Pop-coloured walls, grammable food and drinks, and a menu that’ll tickle the taste buds of every kind of foodie, Tarun Sibal’s latest offering is equally intimate as it is hip.
In the middle of Vasant Vihar market, south Delhi’s rapidly growing hipster paradise, Khi Khi stands on its own even though it’s surrounded by one too many restaurants that have something to offer. Why? Because the Khi Khi experience is unlike any other. The restaurant even has a well-concealed speakeasy that’s perfect if you and your friends want a little bit of privacy from the rest of the crowd. A modern Indian selection of dishes , with unusual ingredients, while you may come to Khi Khi for the ambience and vibe, you’ll definitely stay for the food.
Our recommendations? Try the Malun Aaloo Chaat, which may sound like a humble dish, but it packs a strong flavour that’s sure to stay with you. The Mushroom and Olive Kulcha is another dish that’s unlike anything else you’ve tasted. The great thing about Khi Khi is that it manages to completely turn Indian flavours on its head. Yes the menu features modern Indian cuisine and you’ve probably heard of some of these dishes, but you’ve not tasted them like this.
Now let’s talk about drinks. Even if you’re not a fan of them, you need to sample Khi Khi’s cocktails. Be warned, you’re probably not going to be able to stop at one. Each cocktail is equal parts yummy and beautiful. Gin lovers, you definitely need to order the HHH Sour, it’s not too sour, not too sweet, and balanced perfectly.
So, here’s the final verdict. The next time you’re trying to figure out the perfect place to try out on a weekend, or any other night of the week for that matter, give Khi Khi try. You’ll find yourself more than satisfied and going back for more.
