Chonas is one of the oldest restaurants in Khan Market even before the market acquired its super-trendy status. People come here not because of authenticity but because of familiarity. However, the new branch in the inner lane lacks the homely appeal of the ground floor branch. You go to Chonas to partake of their brand of old-time favourites. Some examples include the Kathi Roll with chutney, whose recipe has remained constant for at least two decades. Others to try are Mix Chicken Platter, Fish Tikka and Paneer Tikka. Then, there’s the sort of Chinese that you’ll find nowhere else. Shredded Chicken in Black Bean Sauce is worth trying. If you’re an old-timer, you don’t need to be told about the comfort factor of the Chona’s brand of food; if you are young and hip, you might like to look elsewhere!

Chona is one of the first resto-bars in the area and a favourite for people of all age groups, especially youngsters who like the casual and laidback ambience. It still maintains the quality of food and service. DJ Dheeraj plays all sorts of music like retro, hip hop and house 7 pm onwards. A live bar serves most of the brands. You can see your food being cooked in the live grill. Cocktails like LIIT, Kamikaze, Woo Woo, Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Bloody Mary and Sex on the Beach are hot selling. Mid Summer Punch, Dark Oreo Choco Shake and Iced Tea are some of their best mocktails and strongly recommended. Appetisers such as Veg and Non-veg Tandoori Platter, Spicy Mushroom, Murgh Malai Tikka, Tangri Kebab, Crispy Honey Chicken and Paneer Tikka are worth a try. They do a lot of sizzlers which are worth trying: Fish Fillet, Pepper Steak and Chicken Fillet. They do arrange theme nights like Ladies Nights, Media Nights, Couple Nights and so on.rnHAPPY HOURS: 4pm to 10pm.
