Imperfecto, Hauz Khas Village

Nothing perfect about this 'imperfecto'

Want to eat- NOT Spanish cuisine. And that might come as a contradiction for a restaurant which claims to have that as a house specialty. More like having Chinese at a 'Paratha Palace' 

Where to go-  Imperfecto, Hauz Khas Village 

What to wear- Your best casuals or fine dining outfits. C'mon, you are going to HKV, dressing up is mandatory!

Whom to go with- Friends, colleagues, partner. The alfresco space makes up for a nice romantic evening

How to get there- Take the metro to Green Park or Hauz Khas and take an auto from there. Driving down and walking to the village is another option. 

What to order- I particularly didn't like anything there which I hadn't eaten before. The food is pretty basic with no special use of Spanish ingredients or cooking techniques. I would suggest, play safe and order the classic pizza and salad. 

What to do around- Well, Hauz Khas has a lot to discover if you just loiter around. If you go for lunch, you can explore the Hauz Khas fort or else just take a walk through this earthy village.

What's for dessert?- Thanks to the slow service, it took us centuries to complete our meal (including some dishes which we had to send back and reorder), so honestly we had no time to taste the desserts there. But there are a host of bakeries and patisseries in Hauz Khas for the sweet satiation.

Cost for 2- 2000 (excluding alcohol and taxes)

What we reviewed - Quite honestly, the ambiance is exquisite, to say the least. There's really a bridge, with a beautiful stream of water flowing under it which you have to cross while entering the restaurant. There's an old hanging lambretta, an imperfect sofa and other knick-knacks which are reminiscent of Goan cafes. Go there only for the ambiance and decent food, which has nothing Spanish about it, but rather loaded with Italian and Mediterranean shades. The slow and confused staff may also mar the otherwise beautiful rooftop dining experience you and your party could have.
