The most plush, tasteful interiors in Rajouri Garden without a doubt.

Atmospherics: Next to Metro Pillar No. 408 is the luxurious restaurant with fat chesterfield sofas and several LED screens with snippets featuring Hollywood stars. California is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines from many parts of the world and Hollywood is a star attraction, and this is the essence of the experience in this path-breaking restaurant. Hence, expect a wide variety of cuisines, but it is a seamless pastiche that includes North Indian and Indian-inspired offerings, done rather intelligently. The menu takes into account the food preferences that exist in each family, where one member likes Italian and the other prefers Thai. The management (which owns other service businesses in the area) is meticulous about keeping records of customer satisfaction, so you will be forced to spend a while filling out a feedback form that is taken extremely seriously.

Table Talk: Though the standard of cooking here is uniformly high, the best things on the menu are the Indian-inspired dishes and the South East Asian ones (the Executive Chef was with Oriental Octopus for several years). The spinach and walnut seekh (Rs 245) was sadly short on walnuts but was otherwise a tasty alternative for vegetarians. Dilli ki chaat (Rs 145) was a slightly upmarket version of what the man across the road would sell: less spice and less sour tang, but the sev was ultra fine and golden and the spinach fried to a crisp. The other quirky dish was sushi paneer (Rs 265) a tongue in cheek look at Japanese sushi. The outer roll was made with a finely sliced length of paneer and the filling was chopped mushrooms sautéed with cheese sauce.

For main course, peanut butter chicken (Rs 365) manages to be novel and familiar at once. It has the texture of regular butter chicken (which is on the menu) but is smoother and creamier. A must try! Where California Boulevard excels is in its desserts, especially expresso chocolate cake mousse.

Plus and Minus: It’s hard to fault the design aesthetic which competes with five star hotels. California Boulevard has a tie-up with Harley Davidson, so if you drive up on one, you are assured of a safe, cordoned off parking spot with dedicated valet.

Must Try: Thai chicken pizza, cheese fondue, tiramisu

I was desperate for a second visit at The California Boulevard after a great experience at the Gurgaon outlet. Went to rajouri garden branch this time with my family. Rajouri garden has a largely Punjabi community living in the vicinity; I guess it's the reason why the B.K.Dutt market is flooded with north Indian restaurants. The California Boulevard is quite different than the others in this area. An project by restaurateur Rajan Sethi which has worked wonders. Luxurious, posh, deluxe, stylish are the words which I will use for this place.One can locate it easily while driving past the rajouri main road and has a dedicated valet parking for its guests. A huge black signboard with golden palm trees gives you an idea how lush the place is going to be. Divided into 2 floors, the decor is super stylish, with dim lighting and cozy chesterfield sofas. A Harley Davidson is placed in the middle of the restaurant which portrays American culture. Lively American songs add to the happening aura. The dining hall has also been given a Hollywood theme with the names of American actors embedded in the floor tiles and their LED pictures are used as wall hangings.The menu is extensive, serving almost 300 listings from 30 different cuisines which includes array of wines and liquors. The ambiance of any restaurant maybe great, but what matters the most is the product it is selling in terms of food and beverage. The California Boulevard certainly leaves a great impression here. In most of the whiskey based signature cocktails, my favorite Jack Daniels is used so I ordered a Dead Bastard, was a heady mix of bourbon whiskey, gin, a bit of brandy, a dash of angoustra and topped with ginger beer. The next one was The Harley which was a balanced mix of Whiskey, Jagermiester, and Malibu and lime juice. Both of them were extremely refreshing.Appetizers started off with The Delhi Ki Chaat which was an excellent crunchy light snack made of crispy spinach leaves topped with sev , tamarind chutney, mint chutney and curd. The Tangy Button Mushrooms too is a great vegetarian starter soaked with sweet and spicy sauce with crispy fried noodles. The Steamed fish with lemon butter sauce was mildly spiced yet very flavorful. The Kaffir Lime chicken tikka, was succulent because of the cheese coating, tasted lemony and presented nicely with onion juliennes. Chicken Satay was a bit dry but the accompaniment Peanut sauce was delicious.Bruchettas were quite crispy topped with a lot of veggies. The Sushi Paneer will simply blow you away, Prepared so nicely with mushrooms stuffing with a soft cottage cheese layer outside.A special mention for the Trio of sauces which were mint sauce, Garlic flakes dipped in sugar syrup and onions in fruit jam made enhanced the deliciousness of the starters. The main course was limited because of the overdose of the delectable starters but was outstanding. The Grilled Jumbo prawn, Prawns were char grilled with a mildly spiced marinade to perfection.The Ratatouille, a French classical delicacy with tangy tomato sauce with lots of veges.In the desert section, The Kulfi Gazak is something I would keep coming back for to this place. A chocolate cup is melted with a blowtorch in front of you to unshackle a crunchy kulfi which will give a great ending to your meal. The white chocolate parfait and The Nutella Torte are also nice but would be a bit overshadowed by the Kulfi Gazak.The standard of the F and B service is extremely high. I was told that The California boulevard does not have a tipping culture which reflects the kind of professionalism infused in the work culture.For me visiting this place is not just about food and drinks, but it's an experience which I would love to have again and again. It's a depiction of great American culture topped with awesome food. This place is highly recommended for everyone to take their best people and make them applaud your choice.MUST TRY: DRINK: DEAD BASTARD FOOD: SUSHI PANEER DELHI KI CHAAT STEAMED FISHDESERT: THE KULFI GAZAK

We visited the Gurgaon outlet of The California Boulevard a few weeks back and ever since I have been trying to go to their Rajouri Gardens outlet, which is the first outlet of this restaurant. The place is very close to the Rajouri Garden Metro Station. Both the restaurants are on similar lines in terms of ambiance, look and seating arrangement. The outlet is setup over two floors and the top floor houses the Chefs Table, a unique concept in fine dining. The facade is remarkable and can be seen from a distance.

Lucky for me a part of my family lives near Rajouri Garden or I would have never had a chance to visit The California Boulevard. It is quite an interesting place. I went to this restaurant with very low expectations which is why when I entered I was absolutely thrilled to see the space they have created. This restaurant has been around for less than a year but it was bustling with people and everyone seemed rather happy. The place had a very lively vibe. The California Boulevard is a great place to pick for a fun weekend party with friends. I love movies and The California Boulevard is all about Hollywood and celebrities. The restaurant even has a real Harley Davidson! I love desserts and because the restaurant was celebrating Cameron Diaz's birthday the day we went there and we got to dig into it. It was absolutely divine. Even though The California Boulevard is a party place and there were tons of people in there, the staff still ensured that we were well cared for. They ensured that our glasses were always full and we got our courses in quick succession. Multi-cuisine restaurants always make me nervous. I always feel it is best for restaurants to just specialise in one cuisine but this restaurant pleasantly surprised me. Even though they had a lot of items on the menu, the restaurant's chef did a great job in whipping us up a treat. Our starters included Nachos (Rs. 165), Dilli ki Chat (Rs. 145), Prawn Spring Rolls (Rs. 225) and Cheesy Chicken Chowder (Rs. 175). The Dilli ki Chat and Cheesy Chicken Chowder were recommended by the Chef and were signature dishes of the restaurant. I quite enjoyed my starters, the soup in particular was exquisite. Our delicious starters left us craving for more. The Wok Fried Chicken (Rs. 325) had been marinated with soy and garlic and tossed with basil and fresh red chillies. The flavours were absolutely wonderful and this was one of the nicest things I ate at this restaurant. I coupled this with a lovely caprioska. The one I picked was a Cucumber and Basil Caprioska (Rs. 275). Next up a delicious Honey Chilly Red Snapper (Rs. 455). Perfection lies in simplicity, this was simple wok tossed fish with sweet chilly sauce but for me it was absolutely spot on. We also ordered an Indian main course dish - Gosht Nihari (Rs. 365). The fragrant lamb jus and saffron were to die for. The end to my meal was rather happy because I got to try three different desserts, thanks to my friends who are just as dessert obsessed as I am. We started with Flamb Baileys Jamun (Rs. 175), Spanish Churros (Rs. 175) and TCB Kulfi Gazzak Ferrous (Rs. 195). The last dessert was really special, created with the popular Indian dessert Gazzak and the ingredient that every dessert must have - chocolate, the chefs had manage to create a finger-licking delight on the plate. All three of us closed our eyes to savour this unusual treat. I know you will too!
