Decor
Plain diner like ambience. There is the occasional Steam and Hiss as the staff brings out a sizzling hot platter. Yep, they do it with smoke and mirrors.

Food
Part of the chain that originally started off at Mumbai, Kobe Sizzlers has a huge own Fan following. This is one place where you are guaranteed high quality cuts of meat even though timing the 'doneness' can be a challenge, as the cooking continues on the hot plate. Kobe's chefs seem to have got that part reasonably right, our Lamb Shaslik and Spicy Chicken sizzlers were spot on perfect. They were served on a bed of cabbage leaves which were engaged in a Maillard reaction with the hot surface, producing an enticing aroma. We also ordered a Honshu Chicken, boiled in white sauce and served on a bed of Rice. After all how plain can that get. We were pleasantly surprised for it turned out to be simply delicious and the addition of adash of chillies in vinegar elevated the dish to greater heights. The Austrian origin Wiener Schnitzel also features on the menu. Desserts include the ever popular Sizzling brownie and Apple Pie.

Service
A rigorous SOP(Standard operating procedure) ensures that your order is processed in defined stages of time and temperature to ensure yourspecification, especially for the Steaks. Credit must be given to the attentive stewards and the Kitchen staff too. A heavy duty exhaust system does the required job of ventilating the fumes.

Plus and Minus
Sizzlers are great, meat quality is amongst the best in Bangalore. The burger patties have a huge scope for improvement.

Part air-conditioned and part alfresco, there is a display kitchen and a bar on one side. Khaaja Chowk is a visual treat with kitschy décor inspired by Bollywood. Start with the authentic Delhi style chaat especially their Khaaja ki Chaat or their unusual Dahi ka Kebab. They also serve a delectable non-veg platter which comes with unusual surprises like Chicken Banno Kebab, Chicken Burrah Kebab and Mutton Seekh Kebab. Popular mains include Makhmali Kofta Curry for vegetarians and mildly spiced flavourful Chicken Chengezh and Mutton Rogan Josh for meat lovers. Biryanis are nice and served in Matka pots. For desserts, try the signature Rocket Kulfi and Rabdi Khaja. Service is laid back but the quirky ambience and company at table would keep you busy. Khaaja Chowk is slightly expensive than your regular north Indian eatery but this is a premium restaurant.

Nightlife Review

Buzz: 2.5/5 | Décor: 2.5/5

-By Suresh Hinduja

Khaaja Chowk boasts of a typical North Indian experience and lives up to the expectations to an extent. So, stick to basic Indian food on the menu and you won't be disappointed. The decor and the interiors are done up with radiant lights, and traditional artifacts. It is basically a family diner and if you are looking for a quiet ambience then just avoid this place, as you'll find kids running around all over the place creating a noisy atmosphere. You won't find fine wine or cognacs here. Either order a gin-and-tonic, rum-cola, whiskey-soda or choose from any of their regular cocktails like Mojito and Chatpata Bloody Mary. For mocktails, it's the Merry Mint, Adrak Ke Panje, Blushing Pina Colada and Virgin Bloody Mary with chaats and Kalmi Kebab. They do have golgappas but no shots in those fluffy li'l things!HAPPY HOURS: Noon to 9 PM
