User Reviews for Aqua The Lounge Bar
The food is excellent in terms of variety and taste. All the gravies have a distinct flavor to them and the chef's dedication in putting the best on the plate is evident right from the presentation and aromas to every last bite of the savoury dishes. The dhaniya paneer is quite a nice preparation along with other classic dishes like tandoori murgh & gilafi seekh.
I especially liked their somewhat outdoor area that is covered with a cloth but makes you feel like you would be sitting in the backyard with a small kitchen garden!
During my Delhi University days, I travelled to all colleges, especially during festivals when social events like dances, dramas, fashion shows, musical evenings and many other performances happened. The purpose of going to different colleges to see the same thing was part of the quintessential student experience. Yes, it is imperative to add here that every college has a different cultural and linguistic ethic behind it which is also defined by the restaurants in the vicinity. For instance, when one visits the North Campus and goes out to eat there, one would find restaurants serving the not so popular cuisines such as the Korean, Tibetan, Turkish and many more. The reason behind these restaurants is that many students from distant lands come and study in the North-Delhi University and these restaurants serve as the saving grace to their tummies and their pockets. Therefore, they run well too. Another example is Aqua- The Lounge Bar, which is located near Shivaji College in Raja Garden and is inhabited by the crowd from the same.
The crowd, subsequently, is young. Many teenagers were cooing up in the dark ambience with their lovers. Some were rowdy too, especially the gang of boys who had come for 'women watching'. The ambience is lively, with popular hip hop and reggae in the background to which people were swaying. In fact, it sometimes looks more like a hippie joint. Moreover, in the evenings, the huge empty space in the middle of the setup becomes more or less like a discotheque, thus making this joint an even more compelling and attractive one in the vicinity where I have heard there aren't many dance bars.
With liquor and an array of Indian and Chinese snacks that are available at an affordable price, Aqua- The Lounge Bar is bound to be buzzing with customers, especially the light pocket student populace. The food that is served is delicious and wholesome. The sliced fish in black bean sauce was cooked and seasoned well. And the portion size, it was heavenly. One dish could fill up two customers. The crispy honey chilly chicken was spicy but tasty. It too had to be packed because all of us (three people) couldn't finish it on our own. The alcohol was cheap and the happy hours made it cheaper. One plus one on domestic and foreign liquor but also on cocktails! Inexpensive, indeed. And they also made their cocktails well. My Pina Colada had an abundance of vodka. So much so that I was happy with just two and that is certainly unusual for me. My friends had three+three whisky 30 ml whisky pegs with which Coca Cola was complimentary ! How sweet. Certainly a value for money place in terms of food and drinks.
The service was great as well. The waiters were prompt and always around. They made sure that our plates weren't empty, even once. They even agreed to pack three small pieces of chicken on the plate without any hesitation. Moreover, they did offer a complimentary dessert but sadly, the menu doesn't have much in that section. Ice creams only which none of us wanted to try out. The servers were so polite that it felt sad saying no to their offer.
Overall, it is a nice place to try out as it has ample parking, good service, great portion sizes, affordable liquor and tasty food. However, that one thing that would restrain me from going back is the excessively rowdy crowd. The area code for Raja Garden, I can safely say, is known to boisterous and so the restaurant too suffers from 'cause and chain' effect. If they can stop stag entries, then probably they'd get a better clientele.
Still a good place to hang out if you are around.
