On an unexciting cloudy Monday evening, we decided to hit Harry's at Khan Market for drinks and dinner. I have been there for quick afternoon beer with my girl friends earlier and quite liked the place though couldn't try the menu so decided to go again for an unhurried meal.
My expectations were pretty high as just couple of months back I visited the Harry's at Clark Quay in Singapore. The original Harry's so to say since this is a Singapore chain. I remember how even their vegetarian pizza tasted so good!

Coming back to Delhi, even on a Monday night the place was packed but the service was impeccable. We started with the Watermelon and Feta Salad followed by Vietnamese Spring Rolls. The vietnamese spring rolls don't look very appetizing but are surprisingly lip smacking. So if you are a vegetarian you must try these and the Muchos Nachos Veggie of course! Coming to non-vegetarian appetizers, we tried and loved their Chicken Satay, Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips and Singapore Chicken Lollypops. But what you must order is the popular Fisherman's Basket which has Calamari and Prawns in crispy batter. All the starters were served in quirky compact bowls. The presentation was good without being over the top. The way they serve food, you want to well immediately dig in!
For mains the Nasi Biryani, that is hot Indonesian style chicken and prawn fried rice in peanut curry, is something you must try if you don't want to stick to the conventional Chicken Tikka Masala or Pasta Bowl that they offer. Too full after the appetizers ( like we were) or on a diet? Play safe with the lean options - grilled chicken breast or fillet of fish. You could go for a lean main course, but you have to try Harry's Upside Down Cone (chocolate, caramel, cherries, mango and vanilla gelato in a cone, upside down) and the Drunken Volcano Cake for desserts.
Why we are going back to Harry's? Well surprise surprise, for their Mocktails! Husband who is on a detox diet and off alcohol told the server that he prefers cocktails not very high on calories. He first got him a watermelon cocktail with Splenda. Next he got him a Bambaiya style masala diet pepsi cocktail. The staff was enthusiastic and paid attention to details- something you don't expect at a busy bar in Delhi.
Being a chain of bars and restaurants, I earlier thought why review? But Harry's definitely deserves this review for it's food, cocktails and service. As a brand, Harry's clicks well with Urban Explorers like me.
