Review: Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba

I used to wonder if my appetite for Punjabi cuisine has reached its saturation having had innumerable trysts with butter chickens, tikkas, dal makhnis et al. But a visit to this quirky restaurant tells there is still room for more ! Located close to HKV gate, this dhaba-inspired place exemplifies uniqueness – from its rustic (read quirky again) decor, interestingly titled – dishes to a life – size tractor completing the “dhaba” look .4553da0e699e0ac88a4e0a0392d26898_14557086410a28e4a24dc497eb13b0b9a3b736c1da_14557790817c51d413536d43c5a013d01c83bfc00f_1455779091

Menu is crisp , and they have named the dishes such that visualization becomes inevitable – sample the “Sawaa Futiya Seekh Kebab” ! So we did go for this kebab, which was by far the most succulent and juicy mutton seekh I have had. Most places tend to get this dry howsoever flavorful, but Rang de Basanti UD did complete justice ! Teekhi chutney on the side was crazily good.58dd2666ac9493fdac345be462d42394_1455779088 Then followed “Naancho” with Mutton Keema de Chaamp – which lived up to the unique factor with fried naan cuts to accompany Keema curry and Lamb Chop. While the combination of spices tasted perfect, chop’s texture was a tad too rough, diluting the experience a bit.be4b926d844271bab0aa4c622e38af93_1455800212

Among drinks we tried Rang de Cola ( a cool version of Kala Khatta ), Shikanji and a special Strawberry Mocktail – all scored high on the refresh – meter.

The gentlemen serving us were very courteous, but overall the service should be faster. In terms of prices, this dhaba is surely value – for – money which is a rarity considering the neighborhood ! Head towards UD for some Bindaas Punjabi binging. It is fun !
