Malcha Marg is a nice, quiet place for spending  a lazy day doing nothing away from deafening traffic and crowd of New Delhi. The opening of Schengen- Deli, Bistro, Pub in the area has added one more place to relax and have some good food and drinks. The property commands a nice, green view of the area from it’s small but well designed outdoor seating. Upon entering, the place looks small, but there are 3 floors and one basement, each with a different decor and ambiance including one outdoor section. We were particularly impressed by the wall art and innovative use of furniture and space.

Interiors are an amalgam of different styles and are tastefully done. The designers have done a great job of getting the best out of small area on each floor and it doesn’t feel cramped or congested even with a fairly large number of guests. According to management, the basement will have a European themed deli soon. Our time of visit was late afternoon with a weak sun and we decided to sit on the balcony outdoors. Both food and drinks menu are fairly detailed and have a number of generic as well as special items.  We were hungry and wanted to taste as many dishes as possible. We requested  Chef Piyush to suggest a few dishes of his choice and after asking us about our preferences, he suggested a few which went on perfectly well with our palettes. To begin with, we were served Roast Pumpkin and Scamorza Soup with cinnamon. It was thick, mildly flavoured and had great aroma. Addition of a small cinnamon stick was a nice touch. Bread basket had 4 different breads and bread sticks. Each one was soft and freshly baked. [...]
