Southall - The name itself takes you to the large suburban district of west London often described as " Little India" . This cafe is very spacious situated in the heart of central Delhi and on a lane which is comparatively quiet and parking is not a problem.

I was there for the launch party and the place was jam packed with the crowd and there were minimum 1000+ people at any point of time. The food served was delicious through they had a very small menu.

Their fresh wood fired pizzas were super hit and attracted maximum crowd on the terrace. The chicken kebabs, chilli chicken & paneer tikka were very well prepared with a perfect balance of spices.

The cafe has two floors and has got rich Interiors. The service is superb as they were able to handle such a huge crowd.

Overall a nice experience and another cafe in the long list of Nightlife places of Delhi!

And when I entered I heard those beautiful evergreen songs on guitar strings...
It was a Punjabi Dhol nights and it just resumed from where those beautiful voices gave a pause to absorb that lovely moment...

Food was awesome and so was their services.
Menu has limited options but each option we tried had taste in it... Seating and dance space is adequate and ambience is little dark but classic inside.

Spent an evening and write next your experience...

I'm not a frequent to Janpat, but when I did visit this market, the one place that really caught my eye was Cafe Southall.
It is located at a 4 minutes walk from the Janpat Metro station and hence is easily accessible. The cafe itself is colossal, it is spacious, can host a huge crowd and is also well lit.
There is a podium for performances located near the entry and a huge bar section right across from it.
We were seated at a huge table, with lovely comfortable seats, by a window which paved way for natural light to stream through.
We started off with a few drinks. I tried a strawberry and beer margarita which was a bright pink color, topped with an ice slushie. It made for the perfect drink to celebrate the onset of summers. The other drink I tried was a berry cosmopolitan which is just your typical cosmo.
For starters, we tried the corn and fennel tikkis which were fried golden brown to perfection and tasted impeccable. Next up was a Tandoori platter which consisted of a stunning mouthwatering assortment of kebabs among which my favorite turned out to be their juicy and tender Seekh kababs. Chicken dimsums were served in a bamboo steamer along with two dipping sauces. The dimsums were moist and flavored to perfection. The coating was quite thin which is how I alway prefer my dimsums. From their pasta section, we tried a goan prawn fettuccine which was a pasta in a rich coconut sauce, try it only if you love coconuts.
Moving on to the mains, we decided to go Indian with dal makhani which was silky and creamy, butter chicken which was delicious and fragrant, paneer makhani which too was rich and luxurious and methi malai mushroom that I personally didn't like much. Amongst the breads we had were butter naan and Tandoori roti which were still warm and soft when they reached us.
For desserts, we had an Oreo vanilla ice cream and Blueberry cheesecake, both of which were just about average sadly.
All in all, I had a wonderfully sumptuous meal, barring a few let downs, at Cafe Southall. A friendly and efficient staff and great attention to cleanliness prove the devotion of the management behind this place.
A great place to meet up with friends or to party, plays wonderful music and isn't too hard on the pocket either. Relaxed ambience, great seating capacity and amazing food and drinks make this place a must visit for anyone looking to have a good time.

Perfect ambiance to hang out with friends with very interesting mix of cocktails. Live music adds more to the goodness.
Truly loved the place , they have indoor and terrace seating available.
Tip: the place is packed after 9pm on weekends, go before the time to grab your favorite seat.

Cafe Southall located at Tolstoy Marg is a good place to hang out or have a couple of beers with your friends after a tiring day at office.

The place is huge and spacious and the interiors are done well. The music is good but pretty loud.

They also had a promotional offer going on at that times in which they were serving a can of beer at a table for just 49 INR.

We actually tried a lot of things but the recommendations are:

Chicken Tikka Salad

White Sauce Pasta

Chicken Sliders

Chicken burger

Pav Bhaji

Vegetarian cheesy pizza

Patola Cocktail and Chilli Mocktail in drinks are a must try.

The service here is the only thing that needs to be taken care of. It's a total turn off.

Everything else was good.
