Khaaja Chowk really feels a far cry from most value-for-money restaurants owing mainly to the very premium feel and stand out ambiance. They have added a nice classy touch by placing an auto-rickshaw smack-dab in the middle of the restaurant, often used by customers for the customary Instagram photo-op. The cuisine is standard North Indian fare, but is well-prepared and made using fresh ingredients; try the Kastoori Kabab and Fish Amritsari for starters. Beer and Wine lovers will appreciate the varied list of brands on offer, and the same goes for those partial to liquors as both Imported and Domestic brands are available.

The ambiance is welcoming and perfect for those weekend outings with family or friends.
