About Restaurant :
The Owner Piyush Dayal got inspired by the movie Chandini Chowk to China and opened a Restaurant at that unique theme . As the name of the restaurant " Chandchini - Let's Drive in .

The unique restaurant serves the Vegetarian as well as Non -Vegetarian Delicacies from the hustle & bustle streets of the Chandini Chowk to the alleys of China . You have very vivid choice to make right from standing and nibbling the crunchy goal gappas to specialties from Tandoor / Bhatti & wok , the great Chinese specialities .

My experience to dine with Chanchini :
I recently went there for lunch and enjoyed their delicacies . The staff there is so welcoming and courteous . Decor is Chinese and Indian theme based as the name Chandchini hints, justifying the restaurant name . The food is hygienic and tasty .Vegetarian and Non- Vegetarian have separate kitcens . I am sharing my experience here :
Cranberry Cooler : A yummy thirst quencher made with tangy and refreshing cranberry and pineapple juice is ideal for this season .
Gol Gappas : The Gol gappas were crisp semolina puris filled with chole and onion with chutneys and Chatpata and Meetha Paani make riots in my mouth . Highly Recommended to taste from their Chaat corner .
Talumein Soup : Its a clear flavor some noodle soup with veggies and with the right amount of salt in it . I loved the soup very much .
Veg. Wontons : Mouth watering crispy wontons filled with veggies carrot ,cabbage ,beans and paneer with the Chinese sauce . My recommendation to try the Wontons there .
Veg. Dragon Rolls : ,Rolls filled with Chinese veggies with Chinese sauce was such a delight .
Main Course :
Butter Chicken : Butter chicken there served surely to tempt the most . The heavenly blend of spices with smooth and creamy tomato based gravy was just as i wish to satiate my craving for Chicken Cuisine .Paring it with my favorite Garlic naan .
Nihaari : The Nihaari is a perfect blend of spices and the meat is so tender . It melts in mouth . If you love Non-Veg , do try their Nihaari and Butter Chicken .
Chanchini ki Daal : Dal makhani prepared fresh with flavors oozing in every bite. A perfect blend of lentils with Indian masalas topped with malai and butter, went well with rotis. good option for Vegetarians.
Missi Roti : I love the traditional and healthy Indian flat bread Missi Roti there , whole wheat and gram flour spiced with freshly ground masalas with oodles of butter on it .
Garlic Naan : Garlic Flavored bread cooked in a tandoor .It is one of my favorite bread served in the lunch . So soft and gooey , served with butter which make it more amazing .
Coming to the best part i.e dessert . I was totally impressed by the desserts .
Honey Fried Caramelized Noodles with Vanilla Ice cream : The crispy noodles tossed with honey and caramel with Vanilla Ice cream is a perfect dessert to satiate my sweet craving . Highly recommend it .
Ras Malai : Ras malai is true to its name- soft and delicious.. same as anywhere but fresh and sweetness balanced.
Mohan vati : The layer of semolina filled with khoya and deep fried and then dipped in the chaashni , is perfect for those who have sweet tooth .
There is also buffet on Friday , Saturday and Sunday . You enjoy the buffet with nice music . And time to time nice performances held there .
