Qavalli, an Old-world Culinary Journey Launched at Aerocity, New Delhi

The essence of Indian hospitality lies in the concept of ‘Mehmaan-nawazi’, the art of entertaining guests and at the crux of that is the ‘Virasaat’ of Indian food culture and the ‘Zaika’ of prized Indian spices. Veteran restaurateurs, Dinesh & Pooja Arora bring you the quintessential ‘Indian’ restaurant that the capital has been missing. 

Imagine the lilting sound of ‘qawwalis’, the aromas of rose, jasmine, nutmeg, a hint of cinnamon and saffron, imagine the culinary prowess of ‘khansamas’ come alive in the rich tapestry of a menu that brings you the best from the tawa to the tandoor. This is the legacy of lost recipes, of forgotten techniques and culinary treasures of yore, this is Qavalli. Qavalli is a reprisal of old-world charm, from the interiors to the curries that simmer gently in a handi, this is where you will create memories over good food, good drinks and good company.

Qavalli's allure extends to its magnificent design, masterfully created by Chromed Design Studio, led by architect and interior designer Abhigyan Neogi. Drawing inspiration from Moroccan themes, the design showcases captivating arches, a vibrant red palette, and intricate patterns, all bathed in the glow of crystal lamp chandeliers.

Walk into a gold and auburn oasis of lavishly upholstered walls, dramatic drapes and cosy alcoves. Glistening chandeliers illuminate this majestic setting, with gilded bar fronts on both sides, ensuring that every guest is treated like royalty. Don’t miss the wall that pays homage to the legendary ‘qavvals’ of our times and reminisce in the days gone by over drinks made from the root to the bark. 

With a commitment to preserving North Indian culinary traditions, Qavalli's menu is curated to complement cocktails and pay homage to Indian produce. Authenticity meets innovation in the Qavalli kitchen, delivering a 'Dawat,' a divine feast that lingers as a beautiful memory.

It celebrates Mughlai cuisine, tantalizing taste buds with perfectly grilled tikkas, kebabs, soulful curries, rich breads, and aromatic biryanis. Secondly, it houses an Indian botanical bar, crafting cocktails with special cordials, tinctures, and elixirs that awaken the senses.

What truly sets Qavalli apart is its commitment to creating unforgettable nights. Qavalli Nights transport you to the magic and music of mehfils, adding a touch of nostalgia to the dining experience.
