User Reviews for United Coffee House
United Coffee House has stood in the heart of Connaught place for a long time now and has seen CP transform over these years, yet it has ceased to change and quite unsurprisingly is still Victorian in its style and presentation- be it the décor, the furniture or the cutlery.
The occasion of visit was a friend’s birthday on a weekday for dinner. We were a little early for dinner yet were surprised to see that the place was crowded- most of the crowd comprising of foreigners. We grabbed a cozy corner table on the first floor and from there I could have a view of the complete restaurant- the big bright chandeliers, ornamental designs on the walls and huge picture frames put on the walls. The lights are dim which infact is very soothing to the eyes.
After admiring the ambiance when it was time to order we ordered Kabab-e- Bahar and Murg malai Bahar both of which were good. The serving was also generous unlike a lot of other fine dining restaurants. For main course we had Jungli Murg which was a little bland for my taste along with Butter Naan. Again the servings of the main course dishes were generous and the three of us couldn't finish the chicken. The service is very efficient, attentive and they make sure that you are comfortable.
Well, too much about the ambiance and décor and less about food because you can find better tasting food at a much lesser price in Delhi but the ambiance and the Victorian feel attached to this place is something to experience.
Inner Circle CP, Parking a mess major chance your car will end up with a nice new scar. Two level restaurant, has the same look and feel for last 20 years and this was my 5th or 6th visit in this period. They really need to invest in making some interior changes as it looks dated and boring now.
Could see mix of Indian and foreigners having meals or coffee or snacks, and place was quite full at 3:30 pm.
Coming to food we were there for quick lunch, Chicken Kabuli (4/5), Gosht Biryani (3/5), Fresh Tandoori Roties (3.5/5), chilled beer pint (4/5). that's the summary, i have had better biryani in road side joints in lucknow. Portion sizes compared to prices (2.5/5), sitting in CP with 20 year + old interiors common this is not a 5 star place so your prices should not be same.
Frankly it was a mixed feeling after this visit, will i come again, definitely not in near future. There are much better and much newer options with in 1 KM zone hence..... :)
Even though this place is expensive you need to go there to experience the Victorian era.
the settings, waiters, atmosphere makes you believe that you are not in the crowded CP.
Half of the clientele is also from foreign land.
Its called coffee house but they serve everything from main course to alcohol
Service is swift and prompt and questioning if you order less.
Food is good especially good old butter chicken but portion size is less.
Verdict: this is the place where you take your foreigner friends to or go yourself and feel like one.
I went to the United Coffee House for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon but found the place bustling with people like it was a weekend. The ambiance of UCH is inviting and like that of a high end restaurant. We were seated upstairs in one of the corner seats. In the first look the menu looks a little pricey with plain rotis and naans priced at rupees 40 each. However, the taste makes up for the price. We ordered one plate of butter chicken for the two of us and the quantity was wholesome and the dish was very tasty too- rich gravy with well made rotis made for a filling and fulfilling lunch.
All in all I would definitely recommend it to someone who is willing to spend a little and enjoy good ambiance. It is in the heart of CP and a good respite on a hot summer day of shopping. The butter chicken was finger licking!
White Royal building, stylish eating joints, Heart of Delhi and youthful crowd, Ohh how I love visiting CP!!
Right in the middle of CP there resides the good old UCH amongst the other stylish and Royal eating joints. As you enter it gives a "Wow" feeling, such a royal imige, portraying the perfect British Colonial architecture with a twist of Indian Mughal era; tall roof, stained glasses, ornamental decor, big royal doors, and fine dinning arrangement comes perfectly well all together @ UCH..
Usually during the lunch time its loaded with foreigners, sipping their tea/ coffee with a book on India-travel, its a sight to watch.. During the evening the crowd changes and there comes the Uncles-and-Aunties in bunches, in their 50s cherishing old memories related to this place and enjoying the experience it gives..
Coming to the food!!
-->> Well its a coffee shop, so try the Cona coffee.. Its an absolute delight, such brilliant fragrance of coffee, perfectly brewed and blended, leaves a charismatic flavor in mouth and makes you crave for more and more..
-->> I like the kababs; pakaodas; pasta; pizza; north indian and like all that i have tried on the menu.. The food is served finely, with decent portions and taste.. They are good with breads, so the break-fast menu is nice and so is the burger..
Other important factors like service and all, might be ignored as the staff also belong to the "good old times"!! One might feel the staff is less bothered and the service is pretty slow but then thats not something that is effecting the crowd.. Its usually full in the evenings..
Talking about price points, it is quite high ended and one can easily shed out 2500 for 2!!
- If coffee lover, have coffee instead of cold drink, else tea is also decent
- Try out the bread base mains
- If opting for pasta go for baked pasta, its a sinful delight
Anyhow, leaving every thing apart, as a ritual of eating out in Delhi and travelling across CP one must must pay a visit to UCH, its more of a monument than just an eatery.. :-D
